The committee strongly suggests that entries be mailed to the tournament director to ensure proper entry and squad preference. Entries that are postmarked on a specific day will be deemed received before any entries hand delivered on that same day. Entries should not be given to anyone other than the tournament director and should not be left at any bowling establishment. The committee or the tournament director is not responsible for delays on the part of the United States Postal Service. Entries should be mailed to the tournament director at the following address:

Generally, an initial entry limit is established to help to ensure that the distribution of competitors on each squad is comparable. Often times, as the event approaches, all or most available spots are taken. In these cases, as long as demand is evident, spots will opened up on each squad to handle the additional demand. Due to the fact that this is often the case, bowlers should always sign up for the squad of their preference, regardless of current availability.

For the enjoyment of the competitors, the committee generally runs "brackets" and jackpots during the qualifier. So that bowlers may be checked in quickly and efficiently and so that squads can remain on time, please arrive at the lanes at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your squad.

As is the common practice of this tournament, we have suggested that the proprietors oil the lanes prior to the first squad in expectation that the lanes will NOT be oiled prior to the other squads.
