Re: Where are You Going Next Year (Collegiate 2017)

Neglected to let anyone other than NAQT know, but I'll be moving to the Chicago area to work on my chem PhD at Northwestern. I don't anticipate playing again, but I'd be happy to help staff tournaments in the area, time permitting.

Re: SQBS Help Thread

We're having trouble saving the tournament. Nothing comes up in the "Save as type" box when we hit "Save" or "Save As" and the file seems empty when we open it. Are we missing something?
