We would like to trade questions with another March tournament with a similar distribution. Please e-mail me at the above address if you are interested.

Freelance packets will be rewarded with a copy of the entire tournament set, to be sent out within a week of the tournament’s conclusion. If this compensation is unacceptable, feel free to e-mail me at the above address to negotiate something more to your liking.

Let me know how many teams your club is sending and how many packets
you expect to submit.
