Puzzle Hour Competition Rules - Gladesville RSL

Ticket Sales! - Pre Registering for the event is very important! Spaces are limited. 

Standard Ticket - $60 per Team + $25 for optional Warm-Up Round

NEW!! - Join our Singles Waiting List!

If you want to register for Puzzle Hour but do not have anyone to puzzle with you have Two Options!

1. Buy a ticket for yourself and just puzzle away solo! (Which a few people have already been doing!)

2. NOW you also have the option of just registering for the Singles Waiting List. When teams register from now on there will be the additional question "Are you happy to have a single join your team for the evening?". Each time a team selects yes to this question, we will contact the top person on the Singles Waiting List to see if they would like to join that team.

Singles Waiting List -  $25 per person. Any people on the list that do not get assigned to a team will be refunded this fee.

Any time a  person on the Singles Waiting List is added to a team, the team will have 25% of their fee refunded back to them.
