Organizers say the initial registration cost for the unsanctioned tournament is $35, and it will cost a subsequent $10 for the second event a player registers for. Pairs are asked to register individually. When registering, players are asked to indicate their level of play to help with the scheduling of games in different divisions: 2.5-3.0, 3.5-4.0, and 4.0-plus.

Teams will be guaranteed three round robin games and a single playoff game. Line judges will be used for the final round, while all round robin and playoff games, apart from the final, will be scored by the players.

The tournament will be held in the centre’s fieldhouse. Go online at dakotacc.com for more information, or to register.
