In order to facilitate airline schedules and motel reservations we have changed the format for the upcoming national 3-move tourney.

All three categories will play four days, July 27, 28, 29 & 30 which is Wednesday through Saturday.
The Masters will play 12 rounds.  That will be three rounds or six games per day.  This has been increased from 10 rounds to 12 rounds as originally scheduled.
Majors and minors will play 10 rounds as originally scheduled.  That will be 2, 3, 3, 2 rounds Wednesday through Saturday.  The awards ceremonies will be after the final round.
