Re: Penn Bowl @ McMaster (Oct. 18)

Our number of teams has now fallen to just 1, because we've had some drop-outs. If that drastically breaks anything, though, we'll be happy to play as 2 shorthanded teams. Your call, Newcombe.

Waterloo would like to register a 3rd team if that is still possible. I understand other teams have expressed interest, so it's fine if you can't accommodate us. But we are ready to confirm a 3rd team at this point.
