We will do a round-robin pool play until lunch (12:00) using standard NAQT rules. Then, we will take the top 2 teams (records, PPG, PPB) from each bracket and play for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th (trophies given to top 4). The remaining teams will play consolation rounds against similar teams (determined by PPG). Every team should be guaranteed 7 games. Stats will be kept and awards given to the top 5 individual points earners based upon preliminary games only.
