Email me and we will talk. I will add that the lunch we provide and being able to watch me run around like a madman all day are both well worth the price of admission.

Could you elaborate upon the format of the matches themselves i.e. powers, negs, and possibly even set distribution?

Delta Burke is a tournament aimed at college novices with very little QB experience, though its difficulty sometimes gets a little harder than that. Packets are ACF style: 20 TUs and bonuses, no powers, negs are -5 as usual. Distribution is nearly identical to ACF, but there is a tad more American lit and history. Also, some bonus lead-ins make jokes, especially at the expense of Republicans, that are immature and terrible and inappropriate and thus make it so no one should really subject themselves to the set ever under any circumstances.

Congrats to Kentucky B and Kentucky A who finished tied for first at 7-2. Head to head record (1-1) against each other couldn't decide it, so we went to the 2nd tie-breaker: PPG (as agreed to before the tournament started) and KY B (304.4) edged out KY A (295.0). Centre (3rd) and Jefferson A (4th) also made the top bracket. Congrats to Scott Z (Jefferson A) who took top scorer (74.17 ppg). Grant (Ky B) took the 2nd place medal (48.33 ppg). Special thanks to Centre for the GREAT moderator they brought. And more thanks to the good folks at Valencia for allowing us to do this, tournament went smooth without any issues.
