20th Annual NASC™ - Registration up 11% over 2008

Pre-registration for the 2009 NASC™ is now closed. A total of 130 players from 20 states and two Canadian provinces signed up early, an increase of 11% over last year. There are an additional 58 players who have made a verbal commitment, written, or emailed that they are coming to the Tournament. Based on this, we expect a final total of 220 to 230 players.

There are rumors circulating that some events are already full. This is not true! There are still openings in all events and you can sign up at the Tournament. If you are planning on attending the tournament, but have not sent in your registration form, please do not mail it as it will not reach me in time to process it before I leave for Reno. You can still register online at through Friday.

Please help! If you are planning on being at the tournament on Saturday, October 31, but have not yet registered, please let us know so that we can be properly prepared for the welcome breakfast. In case you missed this in the last BoardBits™, a free welcome breakfast, compliments of the Sands and The Shuffleboard Federation, will take place in the tournament area on the morning of Saturday, October 31 at 9:00 a.m. Breakfast will include, bacon and eggs, sausage links, biscuits and gravy, breakfast potatoes, assorted pastries, juice and coffee. If you plan on coming to the tournament, but have not yet registered, please either pre-register, or let us know you are coming so that we can plan accordingly.
