PLACE: Hagerstown YMCA, 1100 North Eastern Boulevard, Hagerstown, MD,
(PHONE: 301-739-3990). Please bring your own towel and lock as the YMCA does not provide them.
FORMAT: This will be an open tournament played in round robin format. Each player is guaranteed three games. Points will be awarded to the winner of each game based on the margin of victory. The eight players with the total highest points will then advance to a single elimination championship round. A handicap system will be used for all rounds throughout the tournament to help accommodate disparity in ages and skill levels and will be announced at the start of the tournament. Trophies will be awarded for first and second place OPEN and first place MASTERS, GOLDEN, SUPER and DIAMOND.
FEE: $60.00 for USHA members/$65.00 for non-USHA members. Deadline for receipt of the entry form and fee is Wednesday, September 20th. Fee includes a high quality souvenir, a luncheon buffet and beverages throughout the tournament. As always the high point of the tournament will be the dinner banquet and awards ceremony held at one of Hagerstown’s premier restaurants. (NOTE: This is an affair appropriate for bringing your spouse or significant other, but tournament economics require that a $20.00 guest fee accompany your entry form.)
STARTING TIME: Unless notified otherwise, all players are to be at the YMCA and ready to play no later than 8:30 AM on Saturday.
