You do not need to attend this event IF:
  • you registered to be an official, but not a judge (eg. Sales, Judges’ Lounge, etc)
  • you have already been trained for Problem 2 with Sean Leach
  • Tim Vile (Problem 1 PC) has contacted you, you will be trained on the day of the Tournament
  • Donna Shepardson (Spontaneous) has contacted you, or you stated that you will work on Spontaneous, you will be trained on the day of the Tournament

Registration is required. Please reply to this email if you will attend. (This is so I know how much to bring for refreshments.)

Thank you for volunteering. We could not have a Tournament without you. It is my favorite day of the year (yes, it beats Halloween).

See you at training!
