Re: Minnesota Open Mirror @ Columbia 11/17-18/2012

Anyone against running everything in a day? I think you're playing with fire banking on starting a tournament held in NYC at 8:30 - a lot of teams (mine included) don't have a ton of familiarity with local transportation, and for almost everybody it's going to require multiple steps in the transit m...

Megabus is running, so Columbia's two teams will be there.

Just to make sure, this isn't going to be a main tournament split across two days, but rather a main tournament one day and some side events across the two days, right?
