Registration & Drops

All rules are per the MFA By-laws and Maine State Championship Handbook, which are subject to change by majority vote of member schools. The information below is based on the 2018 invitation.

Pre-register by 8 p.m., Friday January 12, 2018 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 11:55 p.m., Wednesday, January 24, 2018.

Coaches may drop competitors in for a full refund until 6 p.m., Friday, January 26, 2018. Drops after that time are non-refundable.

Drops at or later than 8 a.m. January 27, 2018 will incur an additional $10 nuisance fee.

Dropping Competitors and Judges

Coaches dropping competitors or judges after registration closes should call or text the MFA hotline ‭(207) 370-4632.

If dropping a judge means the school is not meeting the judge-to-competitor ratio based on the final drop deadline of 6 p.m., Friday, January 26, 2018, 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 hotline (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.
