We will only be running this class when we don’t have anything extra like 490’s or Gear jammers due to time restraints. It will be announced on facebook and the website the week before so you will know when we are doing it. The cost to run this is $30.00 and you will run for 80%. As this is a new class for us,  please bear in mind we know we will have bugs to work out.

Payout will be posted on facebook and on our webpage. Please keep in mind money won will not be split in the tower. The winner must come get it and then it can be split.

You will have 5 Minutes after final call. If you are not in staging lanes before the 5 minutes is up you will be disqualified from that round.
