Time Details

If you didn’t renew your membership last fall, new and membership renewal opens at 9:00 a.m. at both locations.

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. As soon as everyone has lined up in an orderly fashion, we will start sign up, anywhere between 9:30 and 9:45. Do not start sign up until those manning the sign-up sheets in front of you say that you may do so.  Registration ends at 10:30 a.m.

Before You Get to Registration

If you are a new member or didn’t renew your membership last fall, either send in your membership at least a week before registration to Elizabeth whose address is on the membership form or come early to registration. Do not renew your membership if you renewed it last fall.  If you are uncertain as to your membership status, contact Elizabeth Fischer, Member Services, (715) 874-5633.

Before registration, select your classes and list them in order of priority for you.

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 wish to be on the wait list for the offering, hold onto the check to use if there is an opening later.

Access the map. We have planned where the sign-up sheets for each offering will be placed and created a map showing the location of each. You can access these maps at the top of this page.  Click on the map and print it out. Use it to know 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.

Important Information about Classes with Limits

Register at either Menomonie or Eau Claire location for the entire line-up of classes and trips. Split the classes/trips with limits with a 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.

At Registration, Please,,,

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, watch for “These classes next week have openings” e-mail. Inflated class sizes prompt us to 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.


Change in Wait Lists

Since we have had a great deal of confusion regarding wait lists, this term we are trying a different system.  We understand that signing up months in advance on a wait list can make it challenging to keep the date open.  Therefore, instead of a wait list at registration, we will offer the opportunity to get on the wait list via the weekly “These classes next week have openings.”  This will be available two or three weeks before the class or trip with limits.  Please make a note to watch for these wait list opportunities.  If you have friends who are members and do not have e-mail, please watch for them, too.  We will not have any wait lists at registration.  Do not look for them or be upset that you cannot find them.


Mail-in Registration Instructions

If at all possible, please send in your mail-in registration by February 26.  If you cannot attend in-person registration or send your mail-in registration by February 26, we will accept your registration after that date.  Please note that in-person registrations take priority over mail-in registrations.  If you are interested in a class or trip that has limits, we recommend that you sign up in person or ask another member to sign up in person for you for that class or trip so that you can get into it.

If you are a new or renewing member, complete the membership form and send it along with your $25 membership fee for the period from March  through August 2021. Include a stamped, self-addressed envelope to receive your membership card.

Click here to access the mail-in registration forms. Print your name and membership number at the top of each part of the form. Place a check mark before the courses or trips in which you are interested. Use a separate form for each member.

Copy the form or print out additional forms for additional members.

As a mail-in registrant, you are not signed up for classes with limits or fees until you are contacted. Do not send a check until then.

Please send your registration and/or membership form to the address on the form.  Elizabeth will reply to you via e-mail that your registration has been received.  She will let you know the classes and trips for which your are registered.  If you have questions, contact Elizabeth using the contact form on this site.
