Just so we can stay trendy...

TJ will be hosting its NAQT tournament, the NAQT JIAT 2005 on October 1, 2005 (note date change), and its house-written (related bonuses again this year, for those who care) tournament, the JIAT 2006, on January 14, 2006.

Jefferson Dead Presidents Open (Aborted)

Okay, folks. Due to unforeseen building use issues, we are going to have to cancel this tournament. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we hope to see you at TJ's tournaments next year.
