Centennial High School will send 2 teams for sure.
We are working to see if we can field a third team and perhaps one from our feeder middle school Burleigh Manor.

THE FIELD IS NOW CLOSED. Any remaining registrations will be put on a waiting list in the event that we can expand the field or any teams drop between now and the 6th.

EDIT: We may try to see if we can request more rooms in order to expand the field - although in that case, we may need teams to bring additional staff.

With Springbrook dropping, TJ C is now the 24th team in the field.

There's still a solid chance that we'll be able to expand to thirty (I'm waiting to hear from administration about rooms, but I'll know by tomorrow or Wednesday at the LATEST), and if so, all 6 teams currently on the waitlist will be allowed into the field.

Alright, one team is fine. We'll send over an updated invoice ASAP (we just sent you one for two teams).

We're now at 29 teams in the field. We'll be happy to throw in a scab team of brand-new freshmen, but if anyone else wants to sign up or add an extra team, now's your chance!

That's correct. Thanks to RM for what I felt was a pretty well-run tournament. There were a few annoyances with bonuses being used twice, but that's not RM's fault.

Yeah, this was ran well. The set had at least 3 cases of repeat bonuses, and some repeat material as well.

Yeah, stats will be posted some time today.

Just to give a brief breakdown:

As was indicated earlier, TJ A finished first, with St. Anselm's A second and GDS third. Other top bracket teams were Centennial A, TJ B, and St. Anselm's B.

The set was pretty good besides a few repeats, as was indicated earlier.

There's one scoresheet we're missing from the top bracket's playoff rounds - it was a game between TJ A and St. Anselm's B.

Also, there was some havoc in the lower brackets relating to teams leaving without notice, but it all got sorted out and the teams who stayed got the chance to play a full 10 rounds.

Longfellow A vs. WJ in round 8 has 200 Tossups listed rather than 20.

Overall I think RM did a really nice job with the tournament and keeping things moving well. The set had some serious editing issues, but that is not really RM's fault.

Could I get the states each team is from? Also, should I just be listing the "A" team from this tournament as the "C" team in the rankings and down from there since it was a novice tournament?

Rankings based on a novice tournament would be pretty unreliable any way you try to rank them.

Yeah, I'd say any rankings based on this tournament are a bad idea (considering these are some school's real A teams, some school's partial A teams, and some school's B, C, etc. teams).

All in all, any teams putting up good enough stats at this tournament to merit any sort of legitimate ranking consideration will be going to many more tournaments this year, so I'd recommend ignoring these.
