Packet Pick-up information

Packet Pick-up will be open Thursday from 7-10 p.m. and then reopen at 9 a.m. Friday morning. The registration desk will remain open until 6 p.m. (breaking for the Welcome Announcements around 4 p.m.). Registration will also be available on Saturday morning (depending on flow of registrants). If you arrive during off-hours, you may arrange your packet pick-up with the contact person listed on the sign at the registration desk.

Every ballot is different, but you may request similar ballots for groups of 2-5. This will increase your odds of having the majority of your 30 games with your chosen group. Please notify the on-site packet pick-up volunteers so that they may pull an available group of similar ballots (available on a first-come, first-served basis).

There is no on-site registration for this event.
