I LIVE OVERSEAS.  HOW CAN I PAY?   We take Paypal to PipGal@ca.rr.com.  What some players have done is have a U.S. friend make the payment, then you repay the friend.  

HOW DO I ENTER A SIDE EVENT? -  Enter any Side Event at the tournament, including Doubles (be sure to take an early Jackpot start time.)  Cash only.

HOW DO I PAY MY FEES?  Fees paid to Gammon Associates West (Entry, ABT and Hospitality fees) may be paid either through Zelle (preferred), Venmo or Paypal to PipGal@ca.rr.com or by mailing a bank check.  $$$ For Paypal, make sure you pay Family & Friends or Someone You Trust  (not Goods and Services or Purchase Protection) or there will be a fee and you will have to pay it.  Mail checks postmarked by May 31st to:  Candace Mayeron, GAMMON ASSOCIATES WEST, 8601 Falmouth Ave #417, Playa del Rey, CA 90293.

COVID PROTOCOLS:  This tournament follows CDC Guidelines, the mandates of the City of Los Angeles and the rules of the Hilton-LAX Hotel.  Los Angeles is one of the strictest cities in the nation.   At time of this writing (March 2022) for all players and their guests, masks in the playing room will be optional but mandatory throughout the hotel.  We will have wipes, gloves and some masks on hand.  The tournament will not wipe down loaner equipment. 

At time of this writing, we will require PROOF of double vaccination if Pfizer or Moderna, single if Johnson & Johnson; negative test results alone are insufficient.  You may email your vax card ahead of time.  Only originals will be accepted onsite for those who have not emailed in advance.  The tournament reserves the right to take a non-contact digital temperature of any player at any time.  All staff will meet the same requirements and be under the same conditions as the players.  These protocols may change as the CDC makes additional recommendations or the City of Los Angeles relaxes requirements for large indoor gatherings.  Most likely they will relax if there are no new variants.

Lastly, on a personal level, I have one Tournament Director in the age group that needs protection and another who is a 30-year pharmacist with a wife who is an EMT nurse.  I rely heavily on the wishes and recommendations of my TDs.

This section will always have up to date information.  Guests of players are very welcome, but they MUST conform to the same protocols before they enter the playing room.
