Just a reminder to all teams that are interested in attending KPAQT IV on April 5th. We are trying to get at least one more team to round out the number of teams to 32. Of course, all teams are welcome to attend, but we would like to close registration by Thursday April 3rd.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to PM me.

With about a week to go, we are looking to expand the number of teams from 34 to 36. If any school would like to bring a team or is interested in bringing a team or two, please let me know.

For the schools that already signed up, thank you! There will be an email sent next week providing the tournament schedule.

Thanks!
