Re: GUERRILLA III - Friday, 4/8/11 - ICT Hotel, Chicago

I want to thank Northwestern for hosting and running the tournament smooth and efficiently. Excluding the repeats in the last round, this set was really well written and a blast to play.

I'm discussing with the UIC team right now if we'll go to the OSU site or the UIUC site. I'm hoping the UIUC site because it is 3 hours closer even though we are slated to play at OSU.
