  • All bye requests (half point and 0-point byes) need to be made per tournament flyer, or before half of the tournament finishes if not specified in the event flyer. 
  • Players withdraw from the tournaments without a legitimate reason at PNWCC BOD's sole discretion will be noted on PNWCC Quitters List
  • PNWCC reserves the right to refuse admissions to players on the Quitters List for future PNWCC events for at least once.
