Allocation process for entries.

This year’s event, as with many major tournaments, has limited capacity which emphasizes the need for a timely and effective process to set the field.  This is especially important for traveling participants to have adequate time available to plan and make reservations effectively. 

To accomplish this you must first sign up to the Wait List then players will be chosen by the following schedule.


October 6, 2022 – (on or before) All USCA members that have earned a prequalification must sign up on the event wait list before Oct 6, 2022. Failure to timely register your entry on the wait list will result the forfeiture of your earned prequalification position.


October 7th, 2022 - Those pre-qualified from the wait list will be moved to the registered participant list. At that time, you will receive an email notifying you of the transition from wait list to event registrant.  You will need to make payment to secure your entry by October 14th. (Your prequalification will lapse on October 15th, 2022.)


October 8th, 2022 – If spaces are available they will be filled by ranking from those USCA members on the waitlist.  This gives approximately eight weeks for participants not prequalified to make travel plans.


October 15th. 2022 – Spaces made available through the lack of registration and full payment or withdrawal will be filled by ranking from those USCA members on the wait list.  This gives approximately seven weeks for these participants to make travel plans.


We are looking forward to a great event this year and your participation will contribute to making it a successful. Thank you for your continued support and being part of our nationwide croquet community.
