    1. Verify that a check or money order has been sent with the entry form and that the dollar amount is correct for the entry requested.
    2. Make sure that all required information has been provided: first and last names, sex and age. Address (necessary for computerization of entrants, mailing of results to finishers and mailing of trophies not picked up after the race) and T-shirt size.
    3. Other information that can be helpful: day and evening telephone numbers, date of birth, and best or predicted time for the distance.  (If an entrant has failed to provide any of the three vital pieces of information (name, sex or age), he or she should be called so that the bib tag can be filled out completely. If the person cannot be reached by phone, attach the entry from to the incomplete bib number with a note that the missing information must be provided by the entrant before the bib number can be picked up.)
    4. Verify that the entrant has signed and dated the waiver/agreement releasing the sponsors and race organizers from liability. Entry forms with altered waivers should not be accepted. Return them with the check or money order attached.  (If the waiver has not been signed, attach the entry form to the completed bib number. The entrant will have to sign the agreement before the bib number can be given out. If a person refuses to sign the waiver, return his money and inform him that he may not run in the race.)
    5. Alphabetize the bib numbers for easier distribution at packet pickup on race day.
    6. Arrange all entry forms in bib number sequence for easy reference in the scoring area (in case a tag appears with missing information).
