G/65;d5 for 3 rounds.

Entry fee: $20 online / $30 walk-up

Registration: 9am to 9:45. No entry after registration closes. Walk-up prices +$10 over online price. Online registration closes at 11pm Friday, March 10th.

Round times: 10am, 1pm & 3:30

Quad winner: $50

What are quads: The top four players are placed into their own section (a “quad”), then the next four highest in another section, and so on down the list. The players in each quad play a round robin, one game against each of the players in their section, for a total of three games each. If there is not an even multiple of four players, the lowest section (usually) will have the few extra players and play a three round Swiss tournament rather than a round robin.

We've had a great response to this event and we've closed the online registration at 34 players (19 players in the OPEN/Reserve & 15 scholastic). We have about 12 more scholastics coming from our training program who are preregistered. Therefore, we expect close to 50 players based upon those who have asked to be listed and will register in the morning. Come early so we can keep to our schedule. Remember only cash or check tomorrow. Check in: 8:30 for scholastics and 9:30 for OPEN/Reserve event.
