Pre-registration now open!

It’s happening; all last year’s captains have just received the much anticipated email in their inbox that they can pre-register their team(s) for Moonlight Challenge 2018.

But don’t worry if you’re not on that list; main registration will open in only 10 days, on Monday 20th August. So keep an eye on the website or our FB page.

(if you believe you should have received the pre-registration email but haven’t, please let us know by emailing mlc(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign) But check your spam folder first 😉)
