Due to a lack of entries within the At‐Large Region (NE/C/TX/KS) there was one open spot created. This goes to the region with the most entries. The Mountain‐Pacific
(MoPac) Region and the Great Lakes (GLCA) Region were tied with seven
entries each. Looking back at the previous year’s entries, the MoPac Region
had only six team entries while the GLCA Region had nine. The extra berth
to the Nationals goes to the GLCA Region.
Nominate your peers or yourself for the 50th International Tankard event, that is held in Seattle this year, March 23-25, 2012.
