OGA Tournament Policies

We are guests of the host facility. Please conduct yourself accordingly or you may be removed from the field.

The Tournament Director is the only person who may make changes to the pairings sheet, including starting times, after the pairings have been officially published on the OGA website. Every effort should be made to publish such information seven (7) days prior to the start of each event. Should it become necessary to re-schedule an event and issue a revised pairings sheet, that information should be published five (5) days prior to the start of the re-scheduled event. Should any staff member or volunteer be approached by a player wishing to make a change during that time frame, he will inform that player as to the need to directly contact the Tournament Director. In order to conclude all administrative details which are necessary for the efficient and orderly operation of each tournament, there will be no changes to the pairing sheet, including assigned starting times, during the three (3) day period prior to the start of each event. Changes should only be requested by contact with the office and during regular office hours. When a player is unable to attend an event because of the development of a conflict with his starting time, the refund policy will be employed.
