We're going to go back down to just 1 Seattle team (Me, Chris Grubb, Alejandro Lopez-Lago, Joelle Smart). We have 1 free agent (Nate Buetel who knows some random religion and literature stuff) if anyone's looking for a 4th. Brittany is available to moderate if we really need someone.

Hold on, incredibly important post incoming:

Technically true, but Rogue Squadron veterans always considered him a member in spirit, not least because Red Squadron was Rogue Squadron's spiritual predecessor.

My teammates are Josh Cadungog and Colin Whisler, both of A&M. We are searching for a free agent, and as neither Jeff nor Patrick are on this team, someone who knows history would be wonderful. Also, someone who isn't looking to win this tournament.

Stanford plus Gautam beat us, so I think they clear the field and we get 2nd.

This was fun and my team was great to play with. Thanks to all the moderators and to Matt Weiner for putting this together!

Thanks to all the organizers and readers for pulling together a fun tournament; I had a great time.

Thanks also to Jonathan Magin, who, in a nice surprise, showed up and played for our shorthanded team.

SQBS did wonky things after I saved a copy of the morning stats and deleted non-playoff games. If you care about your individual stats, check it over and message me what games need fixing.

Copious thanks to all the organizers, readers, and Joe for doing the stats. Despite going a bit longer than expected and a few unavoidable Skype issues, I think it's fair to say that this tournament was very enjoyable for everyone. A big congratulations to the winners, and all the other teams and players for a well played tournament. :)

This was a fun experience, I really warmed up to the idea of a Skype tournament as the day went along and ended up having a lot of fun. This was probably helped by the staff, opposing players, and my own teammates being awesome people who made this a very enjoyable experience. A lot of thanks go to Ram, Jason, and Brendan for being great players; no offense to my various teammates at WKU over the years, but you guys were definitely the best collection of talent I've ever had the pleasure of playing alongside.

The set seemed to be fine too, I think further mirrors of the NASAT set next year would be awesome.
