Clarifications on prize distribution: 

  • The balance of any limited prize goes to the next player(s) in line.
  • No player may win more money by tying with a prize limited player than he or she could win if no prize limited players were in the prize distribution pool.
  • If one or more prize limited players are in the prize distribution pool we will calculate how much each affected player would win if no prize limited players were in the prize distribution pool. This becomes the de facto prize limit for each player in the calculation.
  • Any money not awarded within a score group is split equally between the players in the next lower score group, subject to the restrictions given above.

 

Note: campers do NOT need to register again, they have the opportunity to register at a discounted rate as part of the camp registration process.
