Entries are subject to rejection at any time (including during the tournament) by the NEGA. The reason for rejection may include unbecoming conduct.
Completely executed entry and $260 entry fee must be received by the NEGA Office by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 8, 2013.
All interested competitors are now required to register online (click here). This new system replaces the hard copy applications and checks that had been sent to each individual state association.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to register and the policies in place for withdrawals and refunds. As always, it is your responsibility to review the Conditions and Regulations and submit all information prior to the stated entry close dates.
Payment will be received (i.e. the credit card will be charged) by the NEGA at the time of registration.
Player Selection - After the close of entries, each of the New England State Associations will determine which entries it shall accept for the Championship Proper (allotted #'s, per state, are predetermined - www.negagolf.org).
Player Communication/Notification - After entries have been selected (by each Association), an additional email will be sent to all registered applicants, stating who has been selected to compete. Any player who is not selected will be placed on a wait list (order determined by each State Association).
Withdrawals/Refunds - Competitors, who have submitted an entry for an NEGA event and wish to withdraw for any reason, MUST notify the NEGA office in writing (e-mail is acceptable and encouraged) or by phone. Entry fee will be refunded less a $20 administrative fee, regardless of reason, if the NEGA is notified in writing or by phone seven days prior to each event. Entry fee will be refunded less 25% for any withdrawals received less than seven days prior to each event.
Wait List Refunds - After Round 1 of the Championship, any player NOT selected to compete will be refunded in FULL by the NEGA office.
