Also, expect a registration from RM sometime tonight.

The field is now full. Additional registrations will be put on the wait list, and they will be added to the field if the field expands or if a space in the field opens.

Just to let you know, there's a good chance that RM is regrettably going to have to drop from this tournament. We'll have a better idea by the end of the week - if you need an answer before then, we'll try to rush the process.

With one team dropping from the field, there is still a slot left in this tournament.
Another registration would be fantastic.

What name should appear on the check for this tournament? Is it ok to bring the check on the day of the tournament? If not, may I have the address for mailing?
Thanks!

All registered teams should have received an email with information about the tournament.
Please let me know if you did not receive this email.

Also, another team has dropped, leaving us with 35 teams again.
Another registration would be fantastic, so please email me if you would like to register.

EDIT: Another drop leaves us with 34 teams again. Please register if you haven't already and plan on coming.

EDIT 2: With 32 teams, we're going to close the field again.
