- Players who registered for both and are selected for both tournaments must notify the Tournament Director/Tournament Committees of which tournament that they would like to participate in by March 19.
- Players who withdraw from one event to participate in the other after the date of March 19, or who apply for and receive wild cards for the one of the events and then subsequently withdraw from the other, will be assessed 5 suspension points for withdrawing to play in another tournament.
- Players may not participate in both the March Level 3 and the Easter Bowl under any circumstances.
If a player withdraws from a March Level 3 because they moved into the Easter Bowl as an alternate (or wild card) after the March 19 deadline, they will also be penalized.
