Re: 2016-17 Tournament Schedule: Planning, Discussion, etc.

MCAT will be delayed and turned to a summer open, so MARTYNAS JABLONKIS seems to be our only hope for a spring tournament (other than MUT, assuming it happens).

UVA will be moving NAQT States from 3/18 to 4/1 due to room scheduling conflicts. While this conflicts with RM's LIST VI mirror, Virginia teams can still attend the VT mirror earlier in the month, so we figured that it'd be the least catastrophic date to move to.
