Dartmouth will have 1 team that will have a packet submitted and may manage a second team of new players.

Yale is bringing three teams, and hopefully at least one buzzer. Something has cropped up that has made it nearly impossible for me to come and moderate, as I had originally hoped. I'll keep you posted, though, if this changes.

NYU would like to bring one team, one buzzer, one laptop and one moderator. We will only be bringing players who are not required to submit packets, since we didn't submit one.

To clarify: is this the Wilson Hall on the College Green, as opposed to the J. Walter Wilson Building slightly farther north where MAGNI was?

19 negs and still winning by 500 is a key skill of top teams.

Also, just out of idle curiosity, what's the deal with the bracketing here? Did you think Aaron was coming or something?

Yeah, we weren't told he wasn't coming.

Yale A won the tournament in the first game of an advantaged final against Harvard. Stats are on the tournament DB. There are a bunch of 0-0 ties in the 12th round; a bunch of teams surprised us by leaving to catch public transportation, so I marked games in which both teams left as ties.
