UPDATE: Spectator tickets are non-transferable. You may only submit your name into the lottery once; the name that is drawn is the name that will be allotted the spectator ticket. If anyone is found to be submitting their own name as additional draws for another person, both will be removed from the lottery.
Masks for 2020 WATC will be mandatory at all times, no exceptions. Every participant, spectator, and volunteer will have their temperature taken at point of entry every day. Anyone experiencing a fever, cough, or other symptoms will not be allowed into the event.
The World Axe Throwing League had originally intended to not allow for any spectators at the 2020 Signarama WATC, given the amount of throwers attending the event, and the current COVID-19 environment. While the decision was difficult, we have decided to allow a very limited amount of spectators to attend. Because the demand of spectators exceeds the supply, we must format it in a lottery draw system.
Spectators will be limited to 60 spots in addition to participants, staff, and volunteers. A random lottery draw will be held on Friday, October 30 at 11:00am EST for 50 spectator tickets. Chosen spectators will have until Monday, November 2 at 8:00am EST to pay $35 for the event ticket. Any tickets unpaid after that time will be drawn again and given to another person.
An additional lottery draw will take place on Wednesday, November 11 at 11:00am EST for the 10 remaining spots will be drawn after the Fall bid winners are announced. Those chosen will have until Friday, November 13 at 8:00am EST to pay $35 for the event ticket. Any tickets unpaid after that time will be drawn again and given to another person.
The lottery draws will be weighted as follows:
- Venue owners: 5 draws
- Venue owners with more than 3 competitors: 10 draws
- Spouse/significant other of thrower: 3 draws (children included with this ticket)
- Anyone not a venue owner/spouse/significant other: 1 draw
To enter the lottery draw for a spectator ticket, please fill out the form below no later than 10:55am EST on Friday, October 30. Submissions for the remaining 10 tickets will have until 10:55am EST on Wednesday, November 11 to submit.
Please only submit this form ONCE per person. Any false information, statements or multiple entries will result in your name being removed completely from the draw.
Wristbands will be given out to all throwers and spectators with purchased tickets. Anyone without a wristband will not be allowed into the event, no exceptions.
