Will there be any scorekeeping and volunteering opportunities to earn entries into the tournament? I got an email from Kat Amitrano, the Volunteers Coordinator for the show, but that would usually be for show credit and swag I believe

Normally, your hours of volunteering earn Bonus Points which can be redeemed for items on the Bonus Point rewards table here:
I had a brief discussion with Jim Swain about making a tournament entry one of the rewards, and he was reluctant to do that because of the necessary transfers of cash associated with an entry. You could contact Jim if you want to volunteer to be a scorekeeper; Kat is not tracking his staffing needs. I hope you’ll be available to help out with other aspects of the show where Kat is trying to find help, whether that is in place of, or in addition to, being a scorekeeper.

Looking forward to this year’s event! Got an LE pass and everything. :]

I’ve touched base with him Dave. And correct we keep things less rigid here and more organic in the tournament as it’s whats worked best. We do offer a tournament entry for a 2 hour shift.
