SFA Competition Entry Instructions

Registering for SFA competitions involves a number of steps.  Hopefully these instructions will help make the process a smooth one.

Why are there so many steps to the registration process?
Many of the steps in the registration process are designed to ensure that entrants have CFF licences and that the proper CFF licence number is submitted. In the past, entrants often provided incomplete or inaccurate information. It is time-consuming for the competition organizers to then find the correct information. By using the entrant's CFF licence number it is possible to easily obtain the personal information that is required as part of a competition entry.

Why must I pay by credit card?
In the past, entries were paid by cash, cheque, and credit card number.  Handling large sums of cash can be risky and it is time-consuming to properly account for entries paid by cash. Cheques are occasionally returned and credit card transactions are occasionally denied.  It then involves more work to obtain payment for those entry fees. Changing to a system where payment is by realtime credit card transaction eliminates these difficulties, is more secure, and allows for the level of accountability that our auditors prefer.

Where can I find detailed information about a competition?
Follow the INFORMATION SHEET link for the competition (see below).

How do I enter a competition?
Follow the ENTRY FORM link for the competition that you wish to enter (see below). Prior to clicking on the ENTRY FORM link be sure that you have your credit card information handy. (You can look up your CFF licence number as part of the entry process.)
 
How do I know that my entry was received?
The ENTRY LIST for the competition is updated in real time, as soon as you submit your entry.  You will receive an email from PayPal confirming that your payment of the competition entry fee was sent to the SFA.  The competition registrar also receives confirmation of payment.  Be sure to check the ENTRY LIST to confirm that your entry is marked as VERIFIED (indicating that payment was received).
