So one must register in person from 9:30 am, so as to return for lunch at 11 something. I guess that lets me out from here in Commack. I'm going to drive 7-8 miles to register, return home. and back again at 11 something? Seems to me this is slanted toward just purely local residents. Thanks a lot.
