If a Scout is moved from wait-list to a class, an email will be sent to the registration email.

During registration to select classes, look for the Select Schedule, Morning Classes / Afternoon Classes link, and select the classes available. During registration and class selection, pay particular attention to RED "Information Needed" links.
