    Picking a racing number

    So I went to join APBA as a SO racing member and all went well until I had to pick a number. Every number I picked was not available.......literally every 2 digit number.....sooooo it was onto 3 digits. I finally found one that works for me but now I am wondering how I am supposed to fit the letter J and 3 digits into such a small area. Pretty much every boat I have sen has a two digit number. Did I mess up or is this acceptable....?

    Ya, Dad and Pop started in 1958 in region 4, Tom, Gary and the rest of us since then... At one time we had 11, 12, 31, 41, 51, 61, 71, 81 and 113 (Will and Gary had 1 once or twice.)

    Many of us have had numbers for years. Our numbers were selected in 1953, by father and his race partner..
    Same with Grandpa Viola & Uncle Bob.. 1951.

    Dave,yes,you need to contact the APBA office as others have suggested.The numbers in the "J" area would be 10 thru 99 for a two digit number.There are not that many registered APBA members in the "J" area,so I am sure a 2 digit number will be available.

    Dave, did you try any one-digit numbers? I got my 7 in VA on the 1st request and still retain it. And while living in New York, I had 6. And in NC, I finally earned a 1.

    You can call the main office and talk to the nice lady. Tell her you would like a two digit number and give her some options and she can look them up in a different DBase. Had the same issue. Ended up with the exact number I wanted. Apparently actual DB and online DB arenít connected. Should call within a day or two of registering online or they will process online number request.
