field; if you do a "figure 8" around the park, you will have walked 1/2

"I'm on a Wait List for a program. What does that mean?"
Some of our programs have a maximum # of participants that can be registered for any
number of reasons such as physical space limitations, established ratios between our
instructors and participants, equipment/material available, etc.
If you have added your name to a wait list (always at no charge), you will be
contacted only if space becomes available. If you are still interested in the
program; your registration on the wait list will move over to the intended program,
and you will be asked to go in and apply payment to secure your spot in the program.
If you are no longer interested, we will just remove your name from the wait list and
continue on down the list.
