Illinois Novice (otherwise known as MCMNT) won't be taking place this year. We have merged this tournament with EFT.

Also, I think Delta Burke is supposed to take place on November 13th (though I don't know where).

You can etch Penn Bowl in for January 29 for now, though we might push it back to 22 when it usually is.

Delta Burke is most definitely happening on November 12 and 13 in The City Beautiful, Orlando. Wash U and some others may be mirroring, but we need to confirm. I'd be much obliged if you'd add it, Nick--thanks!

VCU's mirror of EFT is not listed, though I'm guessing it's because it's on a Sunday. (October 3)

Can someone please edit the calendar to show that Minnesota Open is scheduled for November 20th now? I know, but others might not (and it hurts my head to remember things-I earns me money on my pree-ty face)

I'd like to put a tournament we're planning at the University of Chicago on the calendar for either Feb. 12th or 19th, 2011. The date is not yet decided.

Could we get an Early Fall Mirror (EFT) at the University of Toronto put on the calendar at Oct. 30th, please?

I see Penn Bowl listed on this calendar. Is it still happening this year? If so, when will there be an announcement?

Penn Bowl itself has just been announced for February 19. Northwestern had been hoping to mirror Penn Bowl on January 29, like last year. The Chicago Open--Sack of Antwerp had been announced for February 19 about a week ago. Andy Watkins just posted that Harvard International will not continue this season and that the T-Party is quite doubtful.

MUT will likely be available for mirrors starting March 12, though the Minnesota site probably won't run until April 2 due to the two open weekends in March falling during spring break for both Carleton and us. We'll have a real announcement up soon.

Might it be useful to have regional calendars for each region showing the high school and college tournaments together? I think it would make planning easier since it could show delayed mirrors in various regions and/or help schools to work high school tournaments around college ones.
