More on the National Marbles Tournament from the event's official website:

The National Marbles Tournament was first held in 1922. The "mibsters" (marble shooters) will compete for national honors, college scholarships and numerous prizes and awards. The mibsters will play more than 1,200 games over the four-day tournament. 

Champions selected from local tournaments held in cities and countries around the United States represent thousands of competitors and will converge on Wildwood for a week of serious marble competition and fun on amusement rides and boardwalk attractions. 

The national committee operates the tournament, which is composed of a group of volunteer men and women from various walks of life, from around the country that have a common interest in the game of marbles. 

National Marbles Tournament Inc. is a Non-Profit organization under US tax code 501(c)(3). The committee is here to help you with your questions on how to get a group going. Please fill out the form on our Contact Us page for assistance.
