Apparently there is going to be a planned power outage on Sunday that might affect this event. I'm trying to figure out more details about this, but we might have a very unique schedule to adjust for this. If it's at a poor time, the schedule won't be ideal, but we'll do our best to actually have the tournament.

EDIT: Looks like it's going to be from 10-12. We'll probably have 2-3 rounds at the start of the tournament, and then a few options on what to do next. We can do a round or two of slapbowl in the dark if people want to preserve the traditional schedule, we can run a side event during the blackout and then break for lunch, or we can just break for lunch really early and have everyone back at 12. Regardless, we will make sure than any schedule makes sure everyone gets a fair number of games and get to leave by dinner time.

Good news everyone!

The power outage has been pushed back a week, so we don't have to fuck up the schedule to deal with that. Registration will be in Cherry Hall from 8-8:30 AM (CENTRAL TIME) on Sunday, then we'll go over the rules and get started ASAP. We should be done by 4 or 5 that afternoon. You all can park in the College Hill Lot right across the street from Cherry, and we can point you in the direction of dining establishments for lunch if you've never been to our campus before. Hope to see you all on Sunday!

Seven is an awful number to schedule for, and I don't think we can spare enough staff to field a house team. If anybody has the ability to field another team (or if someone out there, college or high school, would like to register a team but hasn't yet) then I can give you a huge registration discount for that team.

With 6 teams we're just going to run a double round-robin, which hopefully will end as quickly as it did last month when we used the same format. I'll do my best to see that stats are posted on a regular basis throughout the day, but I can't promise they won't be posted until the end of the tournament. WKU might be interested in scrimmaging a couple rounds on any unused packets if people are willing to switch off on reading, although we'll have to see how we're all feeling about that after the tournament tomorrow. See you tomorrow morning!

Stats after Round 5

The high school team dropped but we don't have the people for a house team, so we're just letting the teams play the packet on their bye and not keeping stats.

I want to give due kudos to WKU and the field for today, this was a very well run tournament and everyone was super fun to play with.

Also I'd like to not that Ian and I from Centre B won the beatbox portion of the tournament
