Field update. We'll cap the field at 12 teams for now until we can get a clear picture of the staffing situation.

Hello all,

With 14 teams, we will play two prelim groups of 7. The top four in each group will play the top four from the other group, and the bottom three will also cross over, for 11/10 games. Finals will be held for UG and DII if necessary.

Visitor parking is available in Visitor Parking Area 3, which is accessible by going around the Student Center Parking Deck also on Ferst Drive. The tournament will be held somewhere on the first floor.

Lunch will be after round 5: the closest food places are either at Tech Square, roughly a 15 minute walk away, or across Tech Parkway.

You should have been contacted about payment by ACF. If this is not the case, please let me know.

If you have questions, please free to email me.

Thanks,
Justin Htay
