  • We’ll randomize and announce groups LIVE on stream on March 22nd, 2017 at 10pm CST. This will be streamed live on
  • Plan on being there NO LATER than 8am to secure your spot at the event. We are going to have pretty strict disqualification rules in place for teams we can’t find. If it’s announced that you’re in a later group, you won’t have to show up until that time, but for now plan on being in Group A (We will NOT be adjusting anyones groups based on a time they can or cannot be there. Prepare for 8am).
  • As mentioned, signing up with 3 players reserves your teams spot, however I strongly suggest coordinating with all of your teammates and signing up together.
