I'm pleased to announce that, by popular demand, Mike Wong has agreed to reprise his role as TD of TRIUMVIR 2. Coaches should expect to receive updates from him as the tournament date nears (although registration documents should still be sent to my email, as indicated in the invitation letter).

Thanks!

Will you be able to confirm whether your teammate can also staff (or could you send Mike Wong his information so that MW can pester him instead)?

The tournament field is really shaping up! There are sill a few of the usual suspects waiting to claim their spots (like the host school, for example), but we should easily be able to hit one of the nice field sizes (12, 16, 18, ...).

If you are an available staffer, we would really love to have you at TRIUMVIR. Rumor has it that Mike Wong treats his staff well.

We are about 6 weeks away from the tournament and our field is shaping up nicely. We are currently in serious need of staffers. If you are available to staff, please let me know. I'll even buy you lunch!

Fenton dropped to one team, leaving 2-4 spots left to be claimed.

Any luck reaching out to Wheaton North? They're fairly close.

You, sir, are a prophet. Wheaton North has joined the field.

We have room for a few more teams, but at this rate we will most likely have to cap at 18 teams.

A recent surge of registrations has carried us over our initially-stated cap of 18 teams. Given the current availability of staffers, we will keep the field open to 24 teams (but we will not be able to go over that number).

With the addition of Crete-Monee, any future teams will be placed on a waitlist, at least until we hear back from Loyola, Metea, and Somonauk about their final numbers of teams.

There is one spot left until this tournament reaches its hard cap at 24. Who will claim it: Somonauk? Chicago Christian? Latin? Buffalo Grove? Stay tuned....

We have been given word that TRIUMVIR 2 has achieved Platinum certification with PACE. The top 25% of the field, that is the top 6 teams, will earn a bid to NSC.

Good stats, though I believe Anand played the whole match against Crete-Monee, seeing as he got 11 tossups. Fortunately, he still stays in 2nd for the morning.
EDIT: Which would mean Peter only played half of that match.

EDIT: This next sentence is wrong.
Overall, it looks like Andrew Wang/New Trier and Loyola tied for first, because Andrew lost to Loyola B but beat Loyola A, and they didn't want to play a final. Stevenson probably got 3rd, not sure about after that.
Loyola B, WWS, Wheaton North, Fenton, and Stevenson B in an indeterminate order.

Loyola A won outright (New Trier did not beat them), Loyola B and New Trier tied for second because we had enough quizbowl for the day.

EDIT : minor detail missing

Fixed. Thanks. If anyone notices any more stats mistakes, let me know and I'll fix them all at the same time.

Playoff stats and stats for the entire day are now up.

Loyola A cleared the field to claim the championship. Loyola B and New Trier (Andrew Wang playing solo) were tied for second. Since it was getting late, it was decided that both teams would be declared T-2nd. Stevenson A and Wheaton Warrenville South A were T-4th. Stevenson B and Fenton were T-6th. Wheaton North A finished up the top bracket.

I don't know what PACE's rules are when teams are tied. So I won't comment on nats qualification quite yet. I'll have more things to say a little later when I've recovered.

If the tie went unbroken at the tournament, we break it on PPG.

Oh sorry, I thought you had said you beat Loyola A. My bad.

MORE: Mike, I played the whole match against New Trier. Which means Peter would have had half a game there as well.
Also, it's Anand, not Ananad.

Congratulations to Loyola, whose B team put up an amazing performance. Also congratulations to Loyola, whose A team put up an amazing performance.

Thank you to all the teams that showed up. We hope you enjoyed the set as much as we did.

Cahlfs would like to thank the tournament in-charge people cuz that's like a polite thing to do. We are proud to have placed T2nd (read- 2nd) for the first time in Cahlfs history. The rise of Cahlfs has begun. Look forward to a repeat performance at Ultima next week (or Ultima trash side event).

Still says Ananad for Playoffs only.
That's really not a big deal, and I sort of feel like a tool for posting it, but you asked for corrections...
Anyway, a very good tournament on a good question set. Congratulations to all parties involved.
