I haven't heard from huskersalute.org yet. Why haven't I heard from them? Please contact us! If you paid your registration fee, you will receive a receipt, and you will receive information as time draws near to the event. Also, your email address may not be working. We may have tried to contact you and your address may have bounced back to us. Another reason may be that we have tried to contact you and our emails are going to your junk email or spam box. Please make sure our correspondence is going to your inbox. Also, you may have forgotten to pay the $50 or $75 registration fee. Please click here to do so. You may email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time with any inquiries.
What is the $50 registration fee for? The registration fee covers operating costs not covered by the main sponsors for the event. It also secures each family's slot for the event.
Why do repeat attendees have to pay $75 for registration instead of $50? The event cost has gone up each year and we are trying to encourage more first-time attendees.
What does my registration fee include? Your registration fee basically holds your slot for the weekend. Should you choose not to attend, your fee will be considered a donation to the event. It includes your stay at the hotel, welcome packet with gift, bus ride and tour to the UNL Athletics Facility, the watch party on Saturday, Oct 7, 2023 and brunch on Sunday, Oct. 8, 2023.
I am unable to pay using the secure online donation form with my VISA, Mastercard, or online check. Is there another way I can send payment? Yes. Please contact email@example.com and explain your situation. You will be given directions on how to mail your payment in via check.
May I donate more than just the $50 registration fee? Yes! Please visit our Donation page.
