Registration & Drops

All rules are per the MFA By-laws, which are subject to change by majority vote of member schools. The information below is based on the 2017 invitation.

Pre-register by 8 p.m., Friday January 20, 2017 at to provide the host with best estimates for food and capacity requirements. Collapsing or cancellation of events will be decided based on pre-registration information after this time.

Registration in Tabroom, including competitors and judges will be accepted no later than 8 p.m. Wednesday, January 25, 2017.

Coaches may drop competitors in for a full refund until 4 p.m., Friday, January 27, 2017. Drops after that time are non-refundable and will be charged the registration fee as well as a $10 nuisance fee.

Dropping Competitors and Judges

Coaches dropping judges after registration closes should notify Matthew Leland through Friday night (207-735-3436). If dropping a judge means the school is not meeting the judge-to-competitor ratio based on the final drop deadline of 4 p.m. on Friday, January 27, the school must hire a new judge (if available) or drop competitors.

On Saturday before arriving at the tournament, coaches should phone or text competitor and judge drops, or an “all set” to the MFA cell phone (207-370-4632). Drops at registration will not only incur the above mentioned nuisance fee but will result in delays to the start of the tournament.
