Can an updated field be posted, and is there a chance of expansion?
Unfortunately, there is little chance for expansion due to lack of staff, rooms, and buzzers. We will put teams on the waitlist now that the field is full.

Re: Livingston (NJ) Frozen Frenzy - NAQT IS 142 - Feb 7, 201

I really enjoyed the tournament. However, I did notice an error in the stats uploaded to the site. It states that Real Madrid had 5 losses when they only had 4. (The WWPN A v Real Madrid game is recorded wrong, Madrid won rather than WWPN A and the numbers for the bonuses are reversed).
