Match Losers Consolation/Sign Up Consolation:
Tournament is a FMLC,
which means that any player that loses in his/her first match will be
scheduled for a consolation match if he/she chooses. This ensures that every player in the tournament will be scheduled for at least two matches (unless there is inclement weather).
Consolations are Sign Ups - If a player loses in his/her first match, he/she will be asked if he/she wants to play in the consolations.
A new backdraw will be created with players that "sign up" by indicating they would like to play.
Please return to the tournament desk after your first match and, if
you lost, let the tournament director know if you do/do not want to play
Please Be On Time!
