Thanks again to every that attended ACF Fall at Truman State. By-in-large it ran very well and we had a great, fairly competitive tournament. Full stats can be found in the links that Jacob has provided up above. If you have any questions about the stats, feel free to contact me either on here or at my email which I believe is listed above and will get back to you as soon as I can. One more time, thank you very much to those of you who attended, it obviously could not have happened without you.
