Registration Process:  (This following process only applies to individuals who are not already in the field carried over from the cancelled 2020 Scramble Open event.)


1.  Registration will be conducted following this new process.

     a.  Phase 1.  Registration will be open for 7 days.  If an event has more teams registered than we can accommodate, we will conduct a lottery to see which teams get in.  

     b.  Phase 2.  Registration will re-open for events that are not at full capacity.  This second phase of registration will be First Come-First Serve.  If an event reaches maximum capacity before the registration deadline, registration for that event will be turned off.


2.  Individual registration.

     a.  Every player must register themselves.  There will NOT be an opportunity to register other players.

     b.  All players will go into a "Pending Registration" status.  Credit card authorizations will be approved but cards will not be charged until a player goes into the Confirmed Roster.


3.  Teams moving to the Confirmed Roster.

     a.  When all players from a team are registered, the team will be manually moved to a "Waitlist".  (It really helps if all players spell the team name the same way.)

     b.  After conducting any necessary lotteries, teams will be moved into the Confirmed Roster and credit cards will be charged.

     c.  In Phase 2, the last player on a team to register will determine the team's place in the First Come-First Serve queue.  In this phase, when a team is full, it may be moved directly from "Pending Registration" to the Confirmed Roster (bypassing the waitlist).  Again, credit cards will be charged when a player goes into the Confirmed Roster.
