This should probably be moved to the trash forum.

I'm not sure how many Carls are coming to this but you can expect at least one team.

Not to be a miserly grinch, but I think it should be $20 per person, not team.

My bad - that should have read player all along. It's fixed now.

Based on what I've been told, this field appears to have around 8 teams (2 Carleton, 2 Drake, 1 Iowa State, 1 Brian Weikle's Team, 1 Minnesota, 1 Minnesota/Free Agents), so with that in mind, I'm going to set up the format of round robin, rebracket into top and bottom bracket, round robin. This should be 10 rounds plus finals if needed.

Full stats to follow.

Carleton won this tournament by going undefeated at 10-0. "Mothy Britian," Carleton B, and Minnesota finished tied for second with a 6-4 record (with the Carleton B/Minnesota teams having the identical PPG and bonus conversion!) Arlo Lyle's team went 6-4 by going undefeated in the bottom bracket, followed by Iowa State and Drake squads.

Thanks to Mike and the folks and Minnesota for hosting this.

I wish I'd been able to stay for the whole thing.

Was this the final mirror? (iow will the set be posted somewhere soon?)

There is still a Canadian mirror and that's the last one.
