Important UPDATE!! Due to the current circumstances, instead of requiring the full clinic payment with application, we will accept a $200 deposit with application, and the remaining balance will be due by April 24.  If final payment is not received by April 24, the ride will go to a rider on the wait list.  

The video requirement, if requested, doesn't need to be a test from this year, it can be older, or it could show what the rider would like to work on during the clinic.

We are trying to avoid having to reschedule the clinic, but if it is necessary, we will let everyone know as soon as any decision is made.  Hopefully by the beginning of May, things will have settled down.
