ER will definitely have one team in attendance, with a second a possibility.

This has a HARD cap of 16 teams, so only four spots left!

One spot left! Chances of expanding the field are slim, so this really is it.

With St.Anselm's registration, we are full. We'll start a waitlist in case teams drop.

GDS won, QU got 2nd, and Blair and Centennial T-3rd, all qualifying for PACE. Stats will be up eventually. Thanks to all the teams who came out!

I'm fairly sure our PPB against Centennial B is wrong, which would suck since that got us left out of the top bracket. By my account we won the game 550-35 and we had 20 PPB

FYI on the stats.
The individual stats for Centennial A and perhaps for some of the others in our bracket should have been assessed for 7 games not 9 games because of the bye games where we accrued no points.

The byes have no tossups or bonuses recorded, so this shouldn't make a difference.

The byes don't record tossups or bonuses, but they are recorded as games played, deflating per game team and individual stats. If bye rounds (and those vs. Bullis and Wilde Lake after they left) were listed as "Forfeit" rather than 1-0 wins, the games played totals would come out accurately.
