We've been waiting for quite a while since the hosts were released for you guys finally to release some information. We've had it on our calendar, but were about to give up on attending since we're running out of time to be able to get approval for our students to attend. My co-coach said he'd even tried to contact you from the email on NAQT's site, but hadn't heard anything back. The start time is rather important, as Gainesville is rather distant from points in the Panhandle. Do you have an approximate time you think you're planning to start and how late you're planning for the tournament to go? We're not interested in dealing with staying overnight but my students are still looking for one last tournament for the year.

We will plan on starting registration at 9 AM with play starting at 9:30. Finish time depend on number of teams that come and thus the number of rounds we play, but I will say tentatively we will be finished around 6 PM. We are sorry about the late information as we had some logistical difficulties in hosting.

I registered our teams (with my co-coach's name as he'll be the one attending). The form didn't have a space for readers, but he's able to read for the tournament and can bring 2 buzzer sets (or more if you need them).

Thanks!
