This logistics email was sent out today:

Here are the logistics for Centennial’s ATTACK IV coming up this Saturday, Jan. 24:
REGISTRATION:
Please arrive between 8:15 and 8:45 for registration. We intend to start promptly at 9 a.m., so if you must arrive late, we will slot you in at the next round. Registration will be in the cafeteria, and there will be people and signage outside to direct you to the location. If you are bringing a buzzer, please drop it off in the cafeteria at the check-in station.
If you know you will be late, please call or text me (Leslie Wolfe-Cundiff) at 770-402-5096.
PARKING:
Enter Centennial’s campus at the main entrance at the traffic light, and turn right into the bus ramp area. There is plenty of parking space all around. People will be at the main doors to direct you to the cafeteria. .
INDIVIDUAL STATS:
Individual stats will be kept. To expedite this, please fill out this form. Please submit your rosters ASAP so this tournament runs as smoothly as possible.
TRASH TOURNAMENT:
The trash tournament will be run after the tournament ends. Please also submit the people that are willing to play the trash tournament on the above form. The trash tournament will be tossups-only, with powers and negs in effect. There will be 10 tossups per round. There will be a preliminary round and then the top scorers will move on to a championship round with consolation rounds being played if there is interest. Be warned that this trash set is heavily (70%) video-game centric and therefore will not be of interest to everybody. Coaches or adults are free to play as well.
The cost is $5 per person for the trash tournament, payable when you arrive at the tournament.
LUNCH:
Lunch will be served on campus after Round 5. Please stay on campus for lunch, which will be available for sale. The cost is $5 for 2 slices of pizza and a drink per person.
ROOMS:
All rounds will be played in the G and H halls; signs will direct you to your rooms. Rooms will also be marked on the map you will receive at registration. First rounds will begin promptly at 9 a.m.
DETAILS:
With 16 teams, there will be two groups of 8, which will each play a 7-game round robin. Please stay for all seven games, regardless of whether your team makes the final bracket. The top two teams in each bracket will move on to a final four round robin, with the game they played during the preliminary round robin carrying over into their record for the final round robin. These preliminary groups will be sorted first by win-loss record, then PPG, then if necessary PPB.
There will be powers, negs, and no bouncebacks.
You may field up to 4 people per team. Substitutions may occur between rounds, but not at half time (in order to expedite stats-keeping). Protests must be lodged and resolved before the next question is started. The decision of the tournament officials regarding such protests is final.
