The form is your agreement to become a member of OMCKRA, to follow the safety policy (which includes having all participants sign a waiver), to submit fees, counts and information on ALL participants for Ministry reporting and insurance purposes within a few weeks of your event. The Sanctioning Committee reviews your application for sanctioning and will contact you if they have questions or concerns before letting you know if your event is approved.  A certificate of insurance will only be provided for events that have already been approved, so wait to hear from the committee before submitting one.
