EWGA CUP

Milwaukee members may enter to compete in the EWGA Cup by forming a Team of 8 or joining with other individual members from any Chapter.  The Cup has two stages:  Qualifier and National Finals.  Teams may choose what Qualifier site to participate at. Milwaukee falls under the Central Midwest area, but if you would like to visit another area or know members wanting to meet elsewhere that is alright.  The format is individual match play as part of team competition. Milwaukee members did take part a few years ago as part of team made of EWGA members from several chapters.
