MEMBERSHIP & ENTRY INFORMATION:

To sign up, show up to any of our tour events and the tour director will walk you through the process at the registration table.

Our events are open to ALL women. There is no handicap, Fargo limit or requirement to play.

Beginning in 2024, there will no longer be a $30 membership fee. A $5 administrative fee will be charged per event in addition to the entry fee. This fee helps cover costs associated with running the tour, such as live streaming, website, equipment, etc.

Occasionally, JPNEWT will have qualifying events where players will have a chance to win an invite into a WPBA event. Players interested in playing for the invite will need to pay an additional $25 fee at the time of registration. This fee goes to the winner of the qualifying spot to help towards travel expenses.

Starting this year, we are implementing a tiered entry fee system based on Fargo rating. See below for breakdown:

     > 600 = $75.00

     

     > 500 = $55.00

     > 400 = $45.00

     < 400 = $35.00
