Also, just had some bad news that not all of the Tshirts will be ready.   So anyone that lives close by maybe you can offer to come by the office in Little Rock to pick your Tshirt up at a later date, so those that live further away can get one at the event.   ie. the less mailings of Tshirts we have to the better.  On behalf of the Board, we apologize in advance that not everyone will get a Tshirt this weekend, as BEYOND OUR POWERS but our Tshirt maker contact us today and said that had a compressor fail for Tshirt machine and it won’t be fixed until late next week.   So, if you can wait on your Tshirt let me know at the event registration table, and will mark your Tshirt for pickup, or a later mailing.   Either is fine, but we hope you understand and can help us overcome this unforeseen and unfortunate Tshirt shortage at our event!   🙁

More info coming here just as soon as it’s ready.

Thank everyone for your help to make this tournament happen!  – Greg
