Re: JHU Collegiate Novice (10/5)

I suppose I can't blame you if this is the only day you could reserve rooms, or if you did so before knowing that Maryland's EFT mirror would be the same day, but it would be reasonable to assume that this could lead to relatively few teams attending this tournament. Also, as I've noted for the las...

Probably not, getting staffers might be an issue, but if there's significant interest we'll consider it more.

I see people referencing "Guerrilla History at JHU", but I haven't seen anyone from Hopkins confirm this is happening. Once we get a better sense of the field, we will determine whether there is enough i...
