Hey, I just wanted to apologize to NAQT and the affected DII field at ICT for Brown's no-show this weekend. To be frank, we (the DII team, consisting of me, Lloyd, Daniel, and Alex) have absolutely no valid excuse for what happened. Basically, we weren't sure if we were going to be able to go to ICT (for a variety of reasons, partially logistical, partially due to academic responsibilities, I think), and by the time we decided that we would be able to, we realized that the airfare was too much for us, and we ended up not going. We notified NAQT, but only a few days ago, so it was very late, and thus we prevented a deserving team from getting a spot at ICT, and for that we are genuinely sorry. Furthermore, I'm guessing we caused some logistical issues for NAQT, and that's also quite unfortunate.
We hope to establish a better reputation for our club as far as responsibility is concerned, and we will work to make sure that this doesn't happen again.
