Registration and opening instructions will begin at 2 p.m. at McKnight’s Irish Pub & Loft. From there, pool play will take place at Carl's Tavern, Cantina, Sunpie's Bistro, Old Town Pub, Sweetwater Grill and Slopeside Grill. The finals will begin at 7 p.m. at McKnight’s.

Those interested can register in open A singles, men's B singles, women's B singles or a doubles team. The cost is $25 for single players or $40 for a team, and all proceeds benefit the Challenge Fund.

The event has a Star Wars theme, and contestants are encouraged to dress up in their favorite Star Wars gear.

Two-time defending open champ Matt Parker has a standing offer to refund the registration fee of any player who beats him.
