Tossups will be played with powers and negs.
Bonuses will have no bouncebacks.
Preliminary and playoff rounds will be bracketed round robin pool play.
Every team will be guaranteed seven games regardless of field size.
Ties between teams of different prelim brackets will be broken in the following order: PPB, PP20TUH, PPG

I would be interested in mirroring. Could you send me an old tournament to look at?

Thanks,

Saint Joe's of Metuchen might be interested in mirroring, but we do recall that Princeton mirrored in this region last year, so we would not want to interfere with a pre-arranged mirror. However, if there is no pre-existing agreement, we can mirror it either sometime in December (probably the 10th or 17th) or March 17th of 2012. If either of these possible months/dates seems OK, let us know and we can firm up the December option (March 17 is a definite date).

There is no pre-existing agreement for a DAFT mirror at Princeton. I'd prefer a December mirror date, so let me know what works best for you.

Idrees,

As soon as I know, I will contact you. I thought I had our building reserved for December 17th, and I am pretty sure it will remain reserved for that date, but my Principal asked me today to see if I can share the buidling with our Science Department, which wants to host an 8th grade tournament that day. I do not think we can share in this way, but let me talk to the head of our science department before giving you a firm date just yet.

A tournament that Dunbar is registered for in fact.

My apologies, we were trying to avoid the SAT date on Nov. 5 by switching dates with our middle school tournament held on Nov. 19. The date is being moved back to the original date of Nov. 5.

I'd just like to remind everyone that we are still looking for teams to come to this tournament. I'd invite teams outside the region to attend and lend some geographical diversity to the field.

Thanks to all the teams that came out today. DCC A and DCC B came in first and second, respectively. I'd like to hear any critiques of the tournaments, not related to the actual content of the questions, so that we can improve the set for future mirrors. Complete statistics should be posted this Monday. Thanks again.

Any specific criticisms of the set can be submitted electronically via this survey form.

Thanks for hosting this, Idrees. We had a great time and we can't wait to come back next year.

Were the stats of a couple rounds not available? Our final rounds from both the prelims and playoffs don't seems to be in the stats.
