108 teams will be participating in our Irvine Regional Qualifier that starts on Thursday. In most divisions, there are as many or more out of town teams as there are Southern California Teams. Cayman Islands, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, and many programs from Northern California make up 50% of the teams in the tournament.
A few teams have contacted us recently struggling to field a team on Friday. We sent many notices to not sign up for this tournament if your team cannot compete on Friday! Irvine always has games on Friday due to the size of the event. If a team has to forfeit a game they will be forfeited out of the playoffs. To be frank, we’re not going to allow a team to negatively impact a whole division with a forfeit and still compete in the playoffs. We certainly hope it doesn’t come to that in any division and are looking forward to an amazing tournament!
Next weekend we’re off to Georgia for the SGAA Tournament. If you have a team that wants to participate, you have 24 hours remaining to get registered!
If you are planning to play in either NARCh FINALS and haven’t booked your hotel rooms, we suggest you do so ASAP! There are some great options and availability, but they won’t last. 2019 Finals Info
We hope your Monday Morning has started off well and you have a great week!
