Sign up starts at 9:30 p.m. in Causeway Plaza in front of the Sheriff's Youth Ranch Thrift Store. Be sure to bring your registration fee ($15-$50, depending on race length). Also, the Sandbar Grill is open for race day spectators wishing to grab some grub and a drink.
4) Important — If you have a blue permanant disabled parking permit, you'll need to know that the Florida laws are changing. Starting Oct. 1, when you renew, you must provide a a certificate of disability from within the last 12 months.

These laws do not affect temporary red permits or wheel chair license plates.
