Admission and COVID Policy
ADMISSION: CASH ONLY! $15 per day. (Table workers are FREE: c0ntact the tournament director if you are interested in having your name put on a list; those working the entire tournament will receive an event shirt as well.) Tournament director email. firstname.lastname@example.org
COVID ACTION PLAN: Everyone entering the facility must agree to submit to a no-contact temperature check; anyone with a temperature above 100•F will not be permitted into the building. The facility will provide ready access to hand sanitizer. Appropriate face coverings will be required and enforced 100% of the time while in the building, except for athletes while competing; the facility management reserves the right to dismiss anyone who is noncompliant (tournament officials have no discretion in this matter). Current capacity restrictions on occupancy allow only a 1:1 participation to spectator ratio (ex., if there are 26 participants on each of 24 teams, there would be 624 spectators permitted); once this number is reached, the facility must restrict entry.
