    I registered online...got my paypal receipt but did not get anything from the Interfaith Shelter Network. Should I just assume my name is on a list?

      You'll be on the list. Check in when you get there.

    Kevin...I would assume that you're on the list but you may want to print your Paypal receipt and bring it with you for back up just to be sure. ISN is in charge of the official registration list.

The early bird registration deadline is Wednesday, Sept 12th and will save you $10. An RSVP on this site does NOT mean you have registered.
