Please arrive at the Event and report to the TD by the 'Arrival Time’. As this Event is drawn on the day, any player who is not in attendance, or has not, by the 'Arrival Time', notified the TD by phone, will not be included in the draw. Once you have reported in to the TD you must ensure you are available to commence playing as soon as you are called.
