A hunt club may have any name as long as it is no longer than 100 characters in length and is not profane, embarrassing or offensive to the public.
The hunt club contact represents the hunt club and acts as the primary contact. The contact can be any member of the club itself (president, secretary, etc.), but that individual will ultimately be responsible for payment of the license fee. Invoices, dues, and correspondence will usually be via e-mail, so that person should be someone who has a dependable internet connection and is a frequent user of e-mail.
