A random drawing for pool placements will occur on the morning of June 23rd. Initial game assignments will be revealed by 9:00am. Lateness could result in a forfeit & losing your money, so be ready to start on time... well, maybe after a Bloody Mary. 

If you sign up and can no longer make it, please find a replacement & you will be refunded! If no replacement, unfortunately no refund & future participation will be at the discretion of the committee. Luckily, it’s never come to this. Please don’t be the first, we won’t be held responsible for the actions we take. 

Due to the rising costs of running this event, rather than increase the entry fee, we have decided to remove the cash prize. Bragging rights are more fun anyway!
