August 3, 2012: Parking for Commuters

In response to an inquiry, the Royal Pacific has informed us that the daily parking rate for commuters at the Pacifica Ballroom DOES NOT include in and out privileges. Commuters will receive a parking ticket when the enter the lot, and will insert that ticket into the payment machine when exiting, so each visit by commuters will be charged separately.

In light of this new information, if commuters wish to stay on site for lunch, please note that there are several restaurants at the hotel, and a number of others at nearby City Walk.

Guest of the Royal Pacific do have in and out privileges, at both the hotel and Pacifica Ballroom lots, so those who can carpool to lunch off-site with hotel guests can avoid the double charge.

July 25, 2012: QWERTY The Movie

June 24, 2012: Tournament Check-in

Players who are staying at the host hotel must present their room key, which bears their name and dates of stay, at the tournament check-in desk when picking up their registration materials.
