The Amateur division is contingent upon a minimum of nine teams registering for it.  You must indicate your players’ preference for it when you register.  To qualify BOTH team members must be either new to the tournament or have never qualified for afternoon play in the past.  First, second, and third place prize winners of previous Amateur division tournaments must compete in the Advanced division.  This applies to individuals, not just teams.

Two players per team. Play will continue unless there is lightning, thunder or other dangerous weather conditions.

Returning Winner Rule – For any team that won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place the prior two years, the players must return for the next two years with a new partner who has not won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in the prior two years.

Players affected by this rule for 2023: Justin Burkholder, Andrew Derstine, Roger Kurtz, Bryce Mininger, Delphin Monga, Paul Rampogu, Rina Rampogu, Brad Smith, Bruce Thomas, Joy Thomas, Duane Reiss, Kristin Wonderling.

Whack and Roll provides mallets for players.  Amateur division players must use the provided mallets.  Advanced division players may use their own mallets not exceeding 9″ head length.

A free clinic is tentatively scheduled for Friday, June 2, 6 pm inside the Mennonite Heritage Center. Pre-register for clinic by emailing by June 1.

Procedures will be in place to make this event safe for everyone. Bring your own lawn chairs and water bottles.
