2021 Easterns® Invitation List

Please check this 2021 Easterns Invitation List to see if you earned a slot, or must apply for an
alternate slot to the 2021 Easterns®. Competitors signing up for the 2021 Easterns® are only eligible
for those divisions in which they competed during the 2020 District Season.

If your name is on this 2021 Easterns® Invitations List you will have until 11:59PM on August 16,
2021 to register on SurfSignup for your slot. If you register after that date, your registration will be
considered a late paid alternate and you will be put on the alternate list.

Alternates will be considered for any remaining open slots in the order of their registration on
SurfSignup. If your name is not on this list you may still register for an alternate slot, but only in the
divisions in which you competed during the 2020 District Season. Any competitor applying for entry
whose membership expires on or before September 30, 2021 must also renew their membership on
SurfSignup before registering for the event.

Invitations for the 2021 Easterns® are determined first by district membership size in each division,
then by a competitor’s ranking in that division. This is the same method normally used to determine
slots for Regionals. All eligible districts will receive at least 1 slot for each division with many of the
larger districts receiving 2 slots for each division.
