We used the cub forms for Tiger registration for our spring roundup
(the DE said they were 'out' of the old tiger forms, and things were
being changed anyway, so he used the regular cub forms), and it
turned out to be a NIGHTMARE! Probably most of the problem was with
the registrar getting confused and putting stuff in wrong, but 5
months later, we STILL don't have everything right. We have Tigers
that the computer thinks are Bears, and vice versa, a set of twins
which they can't get straight (everytime they get one of them in, they
manage to mess up the other one). PLUS, the computer 'automatically'
crosses Tigers over in late spring, so half of the new recruits
(because of their age) were wrongly put into Wolf rank and according
to our registrar (who is NEVER wrong), you can advance a kid in rank,
but you can't move him back-- so her only solution is to delete th
kid from the roster at the Wolf rank and then re-add him as a Tiger
(PLUS trying to charge us an extra $7 for the "new" kid). grrrrrrrr.
So, be careful.
