I am getting mixed answers here. If I preregister, can I show up Fri morn and get the players pack that I payed for? Or do I have to get another day off, show up on Thursday night, and therefore lose another days work and pay for an extraneous night's hotel stay...? And Rondisc, no need for the 'go find a Ctier' comment. Now you sir are being ridiculous for no reason, these are just simple questions and concerns.
ScottJB - if you notice my last post I answered your question. I said:
"You do not have to be at the check-in on Thursday to play in the event. The check in is just to get a players pack, which you can also pick up at the Players Party."
As you can see from the original post, the player's party is on Friday night. If you pre-register you can show up Friday morning and get your player's pack on Friday night at the player's party. Player's packs will not be available at the courses.
