WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT I REGISTER EARLY? There are four reasons, all to your benefit:
(1) It is mandatory that you have a current USBGF membership. Many of you do not, either because you've never joined or your membership needs to renew. This process can take time, plus we cannot enter you into the Tournament Software if you are not USBGF.
(2) We run the high-equity jackpots (Masters & Dingwell Amateur) on Thursday. There is an EARLY start at 1:00/1:30PM and a LATE start at 7:00/7:30PM. We cannot give out byes in the Early or we would have to later adjust all equities. Thus, I must have a number evenly divisible by 8 for the Early. That means after the 16 registrant, the 17th gets wait-listed until I have 24. Not fun and it might not open up.
(3) We run the Doubles Thursday night. This means you must obtain an Early spot if you wish to play Doubles in addition to one of the Jackpots.
(4) We run a Calcutta for Open & Advanced. Patrick starts the groupings a week to ten days prior to the event. We need the names to balance the Calcutta groups fairly. (A Calcutta is an auction of the players and generates additional prize monies.)
COVID PROTOCOLS: At the time of this writing (June, 2023) masks will not be required in the ballroom. 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. We will have wipes, gloves and some masks on hand; of course masks are optional at all times. The tournament will not wipe down loaner equipment.
Any player exhibiting symptoms will have his/her temperature taken digitally, non-contact. Players with a temperature over 99 or who refuse to have their temperature taken, forfeit the tournament with no refund of fees. If you are sick or think you are sick, stay home. All staff will meet the same requirements and be under the same conditions as the players. These protocols may change if new variants surface.
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.
