Our monthly local club tournament for October will be held on Sunday, October 24, from 3:00 p.m. to around 9:00 p.m. at our regular meeting location, Perkins Family Restaurant, 2401 Richmond Road, Lexington. Steve Bush will direct.
This month's LCT is open to anyone who wishes to play, regardless of whether he/she is a member of the local club.
Like last month's tourney, this LCT will be rated WGPO only; no NASPA membership is required. As such, the entry fee is now $10. WGPO does not require individuals to be WGPO members in order to play at tournaments that it rates but encourages them to join; there are no membership dues for WGPO. You can join WGPO at its website, http://www.wordgameplayers.org/join .
The format will continue to be a five-round tourney, including a meal break at Perkins, with pairings and prize structure determined by the tournament director in light of the number of players participating.
WGPO fully rates local club tournaments. Seedings will be determined by players' WGPO ratings, with NASPA ratings used if the player has no WGPO rating.
