  • 6:00 PM- Check in for your match and warm-up with some practice matches
  • 6:45 PM- In-person signups wind down. If you are arriving after this point or you’re going to be late, you must pre-register and post in #late-check-in on our Discord server, or there is a chance you will not be allowed into the bracket.
