Step 1: Go to the registration URL
Registration links, when available, will be on every event page here on the Mitigwa Web Site. Clicking on the Register link will take you to the front page of that event’s registration. In our example here, we will be registering for Winter Banquet at https://scoutingevent.com/177-2020OAWinterBanquet.
Step 2: Review Registration Options
For winter banquet there are 3 registration options:
- Scouts BSA Youth ($27)
- BSA Adult ($27)
- Guest ($27)
Notice there are NO WALK INS for this event!
You will need to pull down the dropdown under each option individually to register. For instance if you have 1 BSA adult, 1 BSA youth and 1 guest, you will need to do each type of registration separately. Pull down the number of people registering for each option and click Register.
Step 3: Click on Register
Clicking on Register will officially start your registration.
When you click on Register, you will get a pop-up that asks if you want to continue as guest or Log In. If this is your first time using Black Pug, as it will be for most people, click on Log In. If you don’t want to create an actual account, you can click on Continue As Guest and skip to Step 6. We suggest you create an account so you don’t have to re-enter information every event.
Step 4: Log In or Create an Account
If you have a Black Pug account, enter your login credentials. If you do not have an account, click on Register
Step 5: Fill out the new account form
Fill out the new account form. Once you click Register, you will be sent an email that needs to be confirmed before your registration can be filled out.
Step 6: Start The Main Registration
Pull down an option on the registration screen by selecting how many people you are registering. You can add more later.
Step 7: Update YOUR Account Information
Update the main account holder (your) information in the Contact field. If you are registering more attendees under your account, you will do that later. Please fill out all information, including BSA# if available. You can update this information at any time.
Step 8: Add Participants (Attendees)
If you are adding more of thi same type of registration, click on the Participants tab. It will show your main registration. Next click on Add Participants.
Click on a participant in red and fill in their registration.
In the update section, you can also add allergies, special dietary considerations, etc. This is where you can also choose add-on items like patches, dinner, etc. Pull down the select box that says Mid Iowa Council Trading Post. In the example I have indicated a peanut allergy and selected the Friday night dinner.
NOTE: Once you select an add on, you need to click on the “Add to Participant” button to officially add it to the registration.
Update information for all participants until their box on the registration form turns yellow.
Step 9: Verify
Click on the Check Out tab and you will see a summary of your registrations. You can click on Show Detail for a little more information.
Step 10: Check Out
Click on Begin Checkout and verify billing information, change it if necessary, then click on Click Here to Continue and read the terms of electronic payments, and tick the checkbox to agree to them.
Next, choose using ACH Check method, or Credit Card and enter those numbers accordingly. You will see how much your bank account or credit card will be charged in the box. Click on Finalize Payment.
Step 11: Review Confirmation
You will then receive notification that your payment has been processed. On the main screen you will see all of the participants are in Green, meaning they are paid. You will also receive a confirmation email. Note: Confirmation email may take a few minutes (or more) to arrive.
Step 12: Add More Participants
If you have more Scouts who to attend and need to add them to your roster, revisit your registration at any time and add them as a new participant. The screen will show Green for the paid participants, and red for the new ones you enter, showing you still need to pay for them .
If you have any questions regarding the registration process, please contact Joshua Williams at the Scout Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 515.266.2135
If you are a Scoutmaster adding all of your troop to attend, it is possible to enter all attendees and give out “parent passwords” so each Scout’s parent can pay for their child individually. After adding participants, use the “More” down arrow on the registration screen to view how this works.
