Hello,

Hope it's okay that I'm replying to this topic.

I could not come today, but I will be able to come tomorrow. HERB style tournaments have a window to play in, but you don't need to be present for the entirety of qualifying right?

I also wanted to clarify, by 7 entries, does that mean 7 attempts?

As in, could you use 6 of those entries on one game, and the last one on a different game?

Thank you

Lauren

you do not need to be present the entire day, you can use all 7 entries on 1 game, however, you need to have at least 1 entry on different separate machines.

ie ->  Best scores on X machines means you need to play X number of different games
