* This is a USCF rated tournament and membership is required. Please bring membership card or proof of membership. NO memberships can be purchased on site.


* Please check USCF membership expiration dates especially if players did NOT attend the Membership tournament in October, 2017.


* Notation is advised because disputes may be settled by notation. Coaches/parents please take the time to teach your player how to notate, Kindergartners and up have enough education at this point in the school year to handle a writing utensil and print all the letters, numbers, and symbols necessary to notate.
