Just an FYI for this region: Most active teams in Arkansas are actually closer to the Region 11 site at Missouri State. I have Harding already registered and UALR in the works. In addition, teams from Oklahoma who traditionally attend "Southern" sites of tournaments are also always welcome to attend at MSU, since all of Oklahoma is in Region 11.

Most importantly, note that I'm not trying to steal away teams: Please attend the Rice site if it is more convenient for you!

TAMU will be sending at least one team. We're looking into seeing if we can form a second team.

Facing the Sallyport (the huge archway), Rayzor Hall is the building to the back right of the quad. A picture can be found here: http://static.panoramio.com/photos/orig ... 522385.jpg
Teams should park in the Founder's Court visitor lot next to the main entrance located on Main.

The Region 12 SCT is complete. It was a four-team combined field tournament. The format was a triple round robin followed by a 1vs2 and 3vs4 game in Round 10.

Final Results
1. Texas A&M (Div I): 10-0
2. Rice (Div I): 6-4
3. LSU A (Div II): 4-6
4. LSU B (Div II): 0-10


Thank you to all teams for attending the event. Additional thanks go to LSU for braving the ice storm that hit the South to make it to the event along with agreeing to split into two teams at the last minute to avoid a 10-round head-to-head series between Texas A&M and LSU. Also, thank you to Rice for forming a house team (to the same effect).

Did you play this on the DI or DII set?

Edit: I found the answer to my question (DII) elsewhere.
