For every sponsor you refer, no matter what the level, you will receive $10 off your tournament registration. You may refer an unlimited number of sponsors.
E.g) If your registration ends up totaling $50, and you refer two sponsors, you're registration will end up being $30. ($10 + $10 = $20 off).
Sponsorship referrals are due by February 22nd. A sponsor must contact me (despreston gmail.com) and let me know that you have referred them. All sponsors must sign up with a payable check made out to GVTTC.

Before I take off for the Nationals in Las Vegas tomorrow morning, I wanted to thank everybody for their generous participation and donations! Looks like we are over $800 in the profit ledger. The only costs for this tourney were $40 for trophy nameplates. A couple people said they would also donate but didn't have any cash on hand today. So it's all good and we should end up at $830!
