Please fill out this google form to register. The last day to register is March 13.

The minimum fee is $30 per team

Payment
Payment will occur via Venmo - further details will be given upon registration. If this doesn’t work for you, just email us at [email protected] - we can probably work something out.

This tournament will follow the eligibility rules set by team writing the question set:
