Can you give a field update? There is a possibility that George Mason might offer a free agent or two, depending on whether or not other free agents or teams of less than four people exist.

The first post is updated. I'm still hoping to hear from a couple of schools.

Unfortunately it appears that Case will almost assuredly not be showing up. I previously committed to helping staff Solon's high school tournament that day, and although I informed the rest of the team about the tournament, the interest among them simply is not there.

I can ask RIT people tomorrow at our meeting, however, that weekend is between the end of the quarter and finals week, so I don't know how likely it would be.

Pitt will be coming, but I'm not sure how many teams yet.

As predicted, RIT can't make it due to the undergrads having finals the next week.

This tournament is being canceled due to lack of interest now that OSU is going to the main site.

EDIT: Since I would obviously rather play this tournament than not see it happen at all on the east coast, if someone more conveniently located wants to host a delayed mirror, please contact Marshall.
