Re: Niles West BDAT Mirror in Skokie, IL (1/5/13)

As is, double-round-robin in Standard and round robin + playoffs of four and four in Competitive gives everyone ten guaranteed matches, maintains the existing divisions, and has minimal rebracketing delay. Of course, more teams signing up could make combining a more viable option.

Re: Specific question discussion

The leadin to the Atlas tossup was non-uniquely identifying; it essentially stated "This figure's brother Menoetius was thrown into Tartarus", which thus applies to Prometheus and Epimetheus who are the brothers of Atlas.

Having played DII ICT last year would not require you to write a packet either way, because the rules say you had to have played a college tournament prior to September of last year to be packet-required.
