How many players per team?
Teams need at least 4, with at least one female. Most events require 4 participants but some extras are nice to plan your "strategy". The event fee includes up to 6 on your team. Over 10 each is just $10.
I don't have a team - can I participate?
YES - we are accepting individual registrations and can form teams of free agents and small groups. Placement is not guaranteed and dependent on number of signups.
Who can participate?
Anyone 18 and over. Teams representing special groups are welcome and separate divisions and awards will be based on this participation. Separate categories could be formed in company teams, friends/family teams, women's teams, education, public service, and more!
