Shuttle From Hotel to Clubs:
The NMRA will be providing a shuttle on a schedule from the hotel to the clubs. See the tourney directors with questions.

Parking at Primary Club Sunset AC:
Parking at Sunset Athletic Club is extremely limited. Please use the NMRA shuttle to minimize the extra cars from NMRA guests.

Tournament Check-In :
Arrive on Tuesday, July 5, 5 pm to check into the tournament. This will most likely be held at the Primary Club. You'll receive your tournament souvenir, drawsheets, balls for your matches, and other surprises. Appetizers will be available.

Player Information Meeting:
During check-in night, July 5, starting at 6:00 and again at 7:30 pm, we will hold identical early and later player information meetings to go over details of the tournament, and answer any questions. Please try to join us.

Play Begins / Ends:
All players play every day. You can expect play to start at 8:00 am Wednesday, July 6, and finish before 5:00 pm on Saturday, July 9. Matches are scheduled back-to-back for each division each day, so you will be done and ready to explore Portland.

Tournament Scoring:
Matches are two games to 15, with no tiebreaker. Two bonus points will be awarded per game, and four more for the match. Tied matches will split the bonus points. A perfect two-game win would score 38 points.

Large Divisions / Small Divisions:
Large divisions may be split into pool-play groups, with a playoff to determine the winner. Generally, six players advance to the playoffs. Small divisions will be combined to provide enough matches.

Rules questions and tournament issues can be appealed to the rules committee and the tournament director. The decision of the rules committee is final. In special cases, a watcher may be requested to settle disputes.

Tournament Awards:
NMRA high-quality medals will be awarded to First through Fourth places in each age division--doubles and singles. No medal will be awarded for a combined division itself.
