How CVLR Registration Works

The link to the map of the floor layout originally was only in a lower paragraph, but, due to comments that it was too hard to find, we are adding a link to it at the top of the page, too.  Click here for the Menomonie map and click here for the Eau Claire map.

Exciting news! Eau Claire registration has moved to 29 Pines Conference Center off Highway T, just north of Eau Claire. The Menomonie location remains Rassbach Heritage Museum in Wakanda Park.  In-person registration is Thursday, February 23, from 10:00 – 11:30.  You may register by mail before or after that date, too.

Be certain you have selected your top five classes in order of the priority to you. You may take more than five classes/trips, but number the top five.

Don’t come to registration before 9:15

We will be letting members into the room to stand in line at the table for their top priority class/trip at 9:30. If you think the line for your number one selection is too long and you don’t think you can get into the class/trip, go to the second one on your list.

Split the classes/trips with limits with one buddy who also wants to attend them. You get in one line, and your buddy gets in the other. Then you sign up for each other.

Remember classes with limits are split half to Menomonie and half to Eau Claire. For example, if a class has a limit of 30, 15 sign-ups will be available at in-person registration in Menomonie and 15 will be available in Eau Claire. Plan your sign-up accordingly.

Have your checks for any classes or trips with fees ready when you walk into registration. Put the class/trip number and your member number on the check. If you get on the wait list for the offering, hold onto the check to use if there is an opening later or on the other city’s sign-up.

We request that you only sign up for classes you know you will attend. If others interest you and you find later that you have the time to attend, contact the coordinator to see if you may do so. Inflated class sizes prompt us to seek out larger venues, run off more handouts, give the presenters unrealistic attendance numbers, and in general unnecessarily make preparations to accommodate more. If the class has a limit and you do not show up, you have taken the spot of someone else who really wanted to take the class.

Wait lists are set up for hands-on classes, tours, and trips with limits. A wait list tells the coordinator that you want to attend the class or trip if an opening or cancellation occurs. Signing up on the wait list does not mean you are signed up for the class or trip. Only sign up on a wait list if you intend to keep the date open. Most wait-list people do not get contacted until a day or two prior to the class/trip to replace a member who for some unexpected reason cannot attend. If you sign up on the wait list, keep the date open on your calendar until after the class/trip is past. Wait list sign-up sheets are printed on colored, not white, paper.

We have planned where the sign-up sheets for each offering will be placed and created a floor layout showing the location of each. You can access these maps here.  Click here for Menomonie’s map.  Click here for Eau Claire’s map. We recommend you print out the map so that you can see it easily and take it with you to registration.  Use it to find where your priority classes/trips are located and plan your sign-up at registration. If you do not have a computer, ask a friend or grandchild to print one out for you. We will also have them available at the door at registration.

When you arrive at registration, we will give you a sheet to record the classes/trips for which you sign up. You will also have an option to record if you signed up on a wait list.

Please pick up a sheet and record each class on it after you sign up on the sheets. This will help you know what you have signed up for and give you a record to use throughout the term. We suggest you bring a clipboard so that you may easily record your sign-ups. Put the classes that you signed up for on your calendar immediately when you get home.

Register at either Menomonie or Eau Claire location for the entire line-up of classes and trips.
