How does this work if I want to ride with my friends/family?
You sign yourself up, you pay, you ride. If you plan to ride in a group, agree on a “pack” name, and select that on the registration form. If you don't see your Pack name on the list, then you're the first of your pack to register. In that case, select "Add My Pack" from the drop-down list, and you'll be able to add your pack name there. We'll list that as your pack, and when your other pack members register, they'll be able to select your pack name from the list.
The Krewe will make every effort to keep pack members together.
