Okay, if i can be proven wrong, then fine. It just seems like a long day. I'm all for more quizbowl if it's feasible. I will certainly read my best to make it happen if the majority of participants think it's a good idea.

OK I'll be on this scab team. Playing alone sounds horrible.

I just sent out an E-mail to all registered teams. The message is show up at the HIGH SCHOOL and, if you can bring extra players for the scab team, please do. As far as a schedule goes, we're going to run a full round robin. If we get through that very quickly, we will add another three rounds the schedule. If teams are feeling tired and its getting late, we will officially call the tournament after 11 rounds, but encourage interested teams to stick around and play more games. In a field of this strength and dedication, I suspect that many teams will be eager to play as many games as possible.

Thomas Jefferson A defeated Montgomery Blair in the second game of an advantaged final, winning first place! Team Aidan Mehigan came in 3rd. I'd like to give a special thank you to all the staffers that helped make this event run smoothly. Also, STAAAAATS.

Fun tournament. Had a pleasure reading. Thanks for hosting this, and hopefully we'll play better in Atlanta with our full A Team. See everybody there. Safe travels.
