We’ll confirm your registration when we receive and acknowledge your deposit:  Mail (or give) a check to the trip leader, payable to the Pentagon Ski Club, or pay your trip invoice online with a credit card.  Partial payment of trip invoices online is not possible – you must pay the entire invoice – but we’ve created a work-around:  After signing up (registering) for the trip, then also register for the “Trip Deposit – Credit Card Payments” trip that we’ve set up and select one or more trips for which you wish to pay the initial deposit.  You may then pay the resulting invoice, consisting of only those initial deposits, online with a credit card.  You may also make partial payments with credit cards at club meetings.
