    • The Open event is intended for those trying to qualify for the 2019 National Senior Games (NSG). It is intended for the higher level players but any skill level player may enter.
    • The Non-Open event is intended for the lower level players so they would enjoy playing with other players in about the same level. This is not intended for those players trying to qualify for the 2019 NSG. 5.0 and 4.5 skill level players will not be allowed to join this event.
