Welcome to the 29th Annual KISS Tournament. We are pleased to once again host such a great Memorial Day weekend tournament as one of the longest running tournaments in West Michigan. If you are receiving this email it is because you and your team(s) have been accepted to this years fantastic tournament. Kalamazoo welcomes each and every one of your teams' members and family members to this great area to enjoy a weekend filled with competitive games, family fun, and more!
I just wanted to take this moment to remind you of a few things that need to be done and a few changes to the tournament itself...
If you have not already done so, please make sure to send in your tournament fees to the address listed on the tournament site. If we do not have your payment before the tournament registration, your team will not be checked in and therefore ineligible to participate until payment is received.
2) Online Registration
Please make sure to submit your registration documents through the online registration process. We are using SportsForms for the first time this year to help with the registration process. You can use the link below that will take you to the SportsForms webpage. Scroll down to find the KISS Tournament and "submit documents here" to continue to the online registration forms.
If you are unaware of which forms you will need, you can find all the instructions and document links on the Managers Checklist to help guide you through.
The deadline to complete Online Registration is Sunday, May 19th.
If you are traveling from out of the greater Kalamazoo area and have not set up your hotel block please do so through Traveling Teams. We are a Stay-To-Play tournament and partner with Traveling Teams to make everything easier. If you have any questions regarding how to setup your hotel block or need questions answered regarding information, please contact Monica Winkley at firstname.lastname@example.org.

4) Tournament Check-in (VERY IMPORTANT)
This year we are changing the tournament check-in location. Registration will still take place on Friday, May 24th from 3-7PM.
