Changes for 2018:
There are a maximum number of teams accepted into each division due to limitations of space. The tournament arena holds a maximum of 28 tables during concurrent division play with spectators. The maximums are:
Registrations will be taken in order received and early registration is strongly encouraged.
Once the maximum registrations per division have been received, overflow registrants will be notified that their team / puzzler(s) are on standby.
Standby registrants can then decide if they want to keep their place in line for cancellation notification or pass their spot to someone else. If they stay on standby, we suggest showing up at the tournament in case of last minute cancellations and no shows.
