Online Start Box An OnLine Start Box (OLSB) is not a new idea. Many clubs have online registration. This system differs in that it avoids using the USPS mail for any aspect. The liability waiver is signed on line. The event registration and payment is done online. Walk instructions and map is a download and the event stamp on an insert card is also a download.
The links below explain more about the OLSB. The first three links are articles extracted from the AVA Checkpoint. The last two links are our attempt to create a concise set of instructions to help you create your Online Start Box account and how to pay for the walk instructions and the event.
