There’s no way any of my teammates can make it to check in, what can I do?

IF you have everyone pay online ahead of time AND sign all their waivers ahead of time then you can get your stuff from the tent on Saturday. Please let us know ahead of time at TD@wwbeachultimate.com. DON’T BE THAT NO-SHOW TEAM!
