Saturday and Sunday have 2 separate events running concurrently. The certified finals are only for the top 24 players that qualify for it. The other tournament is open to anyone who wants to play in it including the top 24 qualifiers who are playing in the finals. I spaced out the start time so the first 8 eliminated players from the finals can easily join the other tournament. But, if you play in both tournaments at the same time you run the risk of causing an ‘intentional delay’ of more than 60 seconds, as defined by IFPA rules, will result in a warning for first offense and a score of zero for second and subsequent offenses.

Wisconsin charges 5.5% sales tax. I will cover that if you pay in cash or pay pal friends and family.
Total Cost for Cash is $240 ($140 Three Day Admission and $100 All Tournament Fees)
Total Cost for Credit Card, Pay Pay Merchant, Bank Card or something that I have to pay fees on is $240 + $13.20 = $253.20
Pay when you get here not in advance
