Returning OCC Members
… Welcome and thanks for coming back. To renew, simply click on the Members tab on the top of the page, then click on Renew Membership on the left side of the page. Verify all your personal data and then skip to item 3 below.
1. Section 1 - Enter Contact Details: Do I need an email address or birthday or to fill in the spare?
Email… You do if you want to hear from us… all sorts of good things about the OCC… but we’d also like to make it mandatory. If you don’t have one please use a curling buddy or other family member’s email address. Birthday simply helps us make sure that you’re playing in the right leagues… and also with demographics when it comes time to attracting sponsors.
2. What are these mandatory release and waiver things?
Just check them… they are mandatory… read them first… but check them or your registration will not go through. Trust me!
3. WOW… that’s a big area.. that Registration Selection?
We can only say, "read the instructions carefully" to avoid delays in your registration process. Check off only the leagues you want to register in. You will need to check off at least one round button that tells us you are an Regular Member or Substitue then the square ones that tell us what leagues you want to play in. If you run into problems please re-read the instructions as they are there to help you.
4. Options and Options… what are these?
This is the section that calculates your dues… check off only those that apply… this won’t take long but it is critical that you get it right… read the instructions!
5. Do I have to check the accuracy button if I am not sure of something I have done?
Yes… it’s the only way to get to the second page of the registration!
6. OK… now what?
If you are finished completing this section click on the Validate Registration and Calculate Fee button… it will take you to page two...
7. Hey I just filled this in. What’s this?
If you made some obvious errors (for example: did not provide all mandatory information) the system will let you know through red error messages at the top of the page – please correct and then click the Validate button again. Check of all discount options that apply so that the program adds up your fees correctly (a few extra lines, but just the way the program adds things up to fit our fee structure and our many options to play). Then it shows, Total before Taxes: $xxx.xx, and finally Total Registration Cost: $XXX.XX… which is the amount that covers your annual fees.
8. So I’m done, right?
Not quite… there are three buttons at the bottom of this page… not sure about you but Start Again doesn’t seem like a wise option!… and if you have some changes to make then simply press the Go Back to Revise Form button. However if you have experienced a magic moment and feel everything is in order then all you need do now is press the Submit Registration button. OK… do it now!
9. Are we there yet?
Almost… what we’d like you to do now is click on Print and Email Registration Receipt.
