Thanks to my moderators, scorekeepers, statisticians, team parents, and concessions staff for a great day. Thanks also to the players and coaches (more than half of whom crossed state lines and left before 7 AM to make it on time), without whom we'd have no tournament. I'm interested in your feedback; my goal is to run high-quality, fun tournaments.
