You may withdraw yourself from the tournament at anytime before the
deadline using your confirmation #. Avoidance requests will be
accepted before the deadline only and if the draws are large, we
will most likely not honor your avoidance. It is always worth a try
though and we will refund your entry or credit you for a future
tournament if you sign up with an avoidance request before the
deadline and we cannot honor it. Many matches may be viewed from
the parking lot. Please bring a couple of folding chairs as the
club does not have enough chars to go around. Good Luck! CONTACT
