Buffalo is interested in coming, we'll probably be bringing 2-3 teams, and 1 buzzer.

Case is tentatively interested with one team, pending our ability to submit an ACF Fall packet on time (in which case we would hit the MOO mirror at Michigan and attend your mirror of ACF Fall). I'll have a better idea by the end of the month.

Hey Aaron, we could always use another moderator, or you could play if you want, since it's an open tournament.

Is it open? In that case, I'd definitely like to play considering the general lack of open academic tournaments. But in the end, either is fine with me.

Just another heads up that the tournament will be on the second floor of the Student Center, not MDCL as with past tournaments.

We will be looking to start around 9:30, so please show up for 9 or so.

Guelph will in fact have only one team for both this and VCU Trash on Sunday.
