Re: MUT Mirror at ULL - 3/7/09

Surely.

Field update:
UL Lafayette: (2 with one of them being an open team)
LSU (1)
MSU (1)
Tulane (2)

Registration begins at 8:30 with play probably starting at 9:00. We'll almost definitely do a double round-robin so that we get 10 matches in. I'll see everyone there.

I'd much rather a 6 team tournament, that way we'd get 15 rounds in and not have to see every other team four times. I'm not much of a fan of quadruple round-robins. Anyway, we'll be in tonight.
