In past years, the “pre-registration” has been on September 11th. This year, (for a couple of reasons), the pre-registration will NOT be on September 11th. I will select a date totally unknown to anyone but myself. It will be sometime in September, but NOT the 11th. I will notify everyone via, email, Facebook, and Va-Outdoors.com just before I open pre-registration. PLEASE DO NOT send me any payment by check, Paypal, or hand me cash if I see you before I announce the date. This keeps it fair for all anglers.
