This is a reminder about the upcoming PA / District 3 tournament this year, taking place the weekend of June 7th and 8th. For anyone who has not seen the announcement, I have attached a document with the details. Just to let everyone who is planning on attending know, the block of rooms reserved for the tournament will be released after May 6th. My apologies of this late notice, as I had recalled them being released a bit later. However, plenty of rooms remain and as long as there are rooms available from now and until the weekend of the tournament, you will still get the discounted rate. Though to ensure you can get a room, the earlier you book the better! It is my hope that you can all attend the tournament. I am working hard to make this an exciting tournament for all participants. I am sure all will have a great time! Let me know if you have any questions.
