  • We will collect the checks and Cash by tournament day, so they can all be contributed at once to the organization and reach our goal of $10,000.

  • I also am asking for anyone to help volunteer. The duties to help volunteer will vary, but at first if I can get a list of volunteers, and delegate duties later that would be greatly appreciated.

  • Duties would range from gathering supplies necessary, to set up, to selling food on day of the event.

What is my money going towards?

  • Your purchase will include at minimum 4 games and a T-shirt. The money will go towards expenses of the event, with the excess money all going towards the ABTA.

  • At the end of the tournament, I will send out a detailed report on how everyone’s money will be spent, budgeted, etc. It is EXTREMELY important to me that I am transparent with all cash flow for this event and that by paying me I will not be pocketing a single cent.

  • The plan is to pay for all tournament expenses through the team entry fees, and trying to get businesses to donate directly to ABTA in order to raise money and reach our $10,000 goal!
