Thanks for the sticky,

please follow this link for registration for the individual tournaments, online registration has been close for some time, but they will still take registration at the door.


Use this form only if YOU HAVE NOT pre-registred for Texas Showdown. This gives us an idea of what games you want to enter so we can accmmodate you on the brackets.


If you have already pre-registered for the AM Badge and games, you do not need to use this form.
