Past year participants have the first opportunity to sign up for this event. However, every year there have been numerous opportunities for NEW teams to sign up and participate in the event. Because there is an excellent probability that there will be more NEW teams applying than available slots, a lottery will be held to determine which teams get in the event and also determine the order of the waiting list. Based on prior years’ experience the chance of “winning” this lottery and gaining entry into the Red-Tailed Hawk Invitational will likely be as great as 50:50 or greater!
