Tournament director Mike Uphoff has prepared a helpful document providing locations and prices for some of the main hotels in Manhattan as well as the locations of the major fast food restaurants: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GzJ ... sp=sharing.

John at MO Valley said they intend to come, but we have not heard from anyone else.

Edit: Tulsa just registered one team (10/3), and so has Oklahoma State (10/6).

Please be patient about asking for stats, especially if it's the day of or after a tournament.
Sorry, I was just sort of over-eager to judge the difficulty of the tournament since the site in the Northeast looks to be super competitive. My bad, I hadn't read that post before, and I'll refrain from doing this sort of thing in the future. Sincere apologies.

Thanks everyone for coming to the tournament and making K-State's first tournament in five and a half years a success! We had a great time today, and we hope you all will consider coming the next time we host a tournament at K-State.

Below is the link to the stats for the tournament. If you notice any incongruities between the stats we have and what you remember, let me know and I'll get it updated as soon as possible. Since Johnson County decided to leave early, there are of course only five rounds of stats in the stats report, but we counted the afternoon rounds as forfeits for the purposes of determining which teams were awarded trophies.

These stats may not be the best indicator of tournament difficulty because we had several inexperienced and/or incomplete teams and the tournament. I would say that Illinois's description of difficulty as approximately that of ACF Regionals is about right.
