This project paper describes in detail the steps taken to create the e-commerce on-line registrations system for the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) Workshop. The BOW is a workshop focused on the learning of outdoor skills --skills usually associated with hunting and fishing, but useful for many outdoor pursuits for women. Before the creation of the on-line registration system all data pertaining to the registration process was collect by paper and stored in a Microsoft Access database. The database caused a redundant process because it was not set up properly and many things had to be done using a paper and pencil. This project paper traces the process of creating the project from the start-the planning process, to the finish-the project implementation.
