    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): Do I have to be a PDGA member?
    YES and no. Advanced players are playing in an A-Tier event and the PDGA requires A-Tier/Supertour players to have a current PDGA membership. Intermediate
    You do not need to be a member, but non-members pay a $10 fee to the PDGA in order to play in any PDGA sanctioned event.

    Is there a cap on number of players?
    We are increasing the number of players this year to 144. "Pool A" will consist of MA1 and FA1 and will have a maximum of 72 players. "Pool B" will consist of all other divisions and will have a maximum of 72 players.

    Where can I see more information?

                I was wondering about hole positions, is it going to be all longs - all rounds or is there going to be some pin movement (**hope**)

                          How are the skins going to work? I was looking at last year's final 9 and with just the four of us there was a push on all 9 holes. Will all divisions be competing together for skins?
