The 2 for 1 Special will be extended until March 15th.  I am currently working to manually override the system to extend the 2 for 1 Special and follow-up with those of you trying to register at this hour.  

The reason why some of you could not register is that we had a limit of 50 registrations at the 2 for 1 special and we sold out of those available registrations about 8 hours prior to the promotion ending.
