During our tournaments, VASO will enforce only those clarifications issued by VASO; National clarifications and FAQs will not be valid in Virginia tournaments. For the State Tournament, the last day to submit clarification requests is March 28 and VASO will post all outstanding clarification responses, with the exception of any specific room dimensions required by the rules, by midnight, March 31. Room dimensions will be posted as they become available, usually two weeks before the tournament.
