night, at the club and NOT at the hotel.
The host club
will be the famous Maverick Athletic Club in Arlington. We are allowed to use all ten of their concrete-walled
courts. Thanks to Bob Sullins and his crew for allowing us to use the
much more information available in the Info Sheet. In addition, there are many things to do in Dallas

email us if you have any questions. I
look forward to seeing you in Dallas / Fort Worth at check-in night on Tuesday,
March 21, at about 5:00 pm. Thanks for
considering playing our tournament. We
think we have a great formula for providing the best bang for your travel
tournament dollar, but we are always open to suggestions.
