Its once again time to put this big event on the calendar.  We are very excited to announce that this year’s tournament will be a bigger prize pool and a lot of different options that will be offered at this year’s tournament.  We listened to your comments at last year’s tourney and we wanted to incorporate them this year so here goes.  We have reduced the entry fee to $250.00 per person and now we have two options of increasing your chip count before the tournament starts.  You will see on the registration form that you can purchase a single 10K chip adder for $30 or you can add a 20K chip adder for $50.  In addition to the adders you will be able to reenter the tournament if you choose before a predetermined round level.  I will have that reentry round at a later time and will share.  Another change is that the hotel will be directly handling all hotel room reservations and there is a code on the registration form to use when calling.  The rooms we negotiated are $59 a night whether you are a king or two queens.  The link also offers you the option of what tower you want to be in.  I suggest bunking up and saving some money for the casino, but its your choice.  I am also including the direct link to our booking of rooms with this email so you can go right to the room you want and reserve it online if you choose to do so.  Please don’t wait til the last minute to make your reservation as they want our booking of rooms in before the deadline established, which is January 30th.  I think these added features to our tournament will be what everyone is looking for and hopefully we will at least double our entries from last year.  Our entire committee is looking forward to seeing you all down at Cherokee again this coming year.  If anyone hasn’t seen the you tube video from last year you should definitely check it out.  Go to you tube and type in 2018 NCMA Texas Hold’em and it will pull it up for you.  Congratulations again to last year’s champ Bo Brindley from GA.  We will be pre selling shirts again this year, but we are using a local vendor for them.  They will be onsite for you when you register.  Please don’t hesitate to call me with any questions you have.  The hotel doesn’t have any info for our poker tournament so please email me or call me with questions.  Also, Please share this email with any and all interested in this tournament this year including our out of state moose members.
