All players must live in the Midwest. To verify this, you’ll need to get a picture of your driver’s license (or other government-issued photo ID) and black out the personal information except for your picture, first name, and state. Include that picture in your registration, either as a link or by email. For an example of a good picture that proves residency, check out my lovely mugshot: http://imgur.com/Vq9rzTb
Please note that we will never distribute your proof of residence information; we will even make sure your name and state is kept private if you prefer.
