begin this process, please send me your team’s id number (begins with SB08) and the date and name of the
tournament you are hosting. After I enter the team’s id number into the database you will be able to register for
the PONY National via PONY’s tournament web page. The web page will generate an email to the team’s
contract person with directions on to whom to mail the fee. Host berth teams are required to play in two PONY
Qualifier tournaments to retain their host berth. Teams that register late or do not timely submit the fee may not
be able to attend due to limited space.
