Re: Delta Burke at NIU 11/14/15

With the registration of Eureka, I'm going to temporarily close the field until I hear back from Drake and Eureka on the exact number of teams they are bringing. I'll be starting a wait list, and priority will be given to teams that can provide a moderator.

Re: Kaneland Varsity Tournament (Potatoville Mirror)

We've decided to split the field into two divisions, Competitive and Standard. I've emailed all the coaches asking them to make a decision on which division to place their team into. We reserve the right to to deny a team entry to the standard division if they are known to be a strong team.
