We should run some side events at this! I'd be up for anything like Eyes, Will's set, or a trash set like BUTT

I would definitely love to run Eyes and would be happy to also run trash. Let me look into that. I'll update shortly.

Registration for the main tournament will be closed by Wednesday, February 17th. Side events are more negotiable.

Out of curiosity: why? I notice Stanford also closed their registration (a week and a half before the tournament) and I recommend against it (having screwed this up for VCU Open 2011). As long as your staff and room constraints are good to go, you can easily take registrations up until the Friday before (for a tournament of this size, at any rate) - or at least the Wednesday before. It's better if people get their act together, but you only losing money by closing the field.

Do you have any sort of tentative schedule for side events? I know that I'll personally drive down Sunday for anything that runs on a second day but it would be nice to know what events are being run when.

We'll also be there for any Sunday events, but we'd also like to know what events will be available when.

Trash will definitely be Sunday, and Xmas Present will be Saturday night since we've had a request to run it then. We can either run Eyes concurrently with Xmas Present, right afterwards on Saturday night, or first thing Sunday morning before trash- I'll poll people and figure that out.

Also, thank you, Cody, for your advice. This is my first time running a college tournament and dealing with my school's room reservation system, and I've had some difficulties with the latter. I apologize to all tournament attendees if this results in a smaller or lesser field.

It would be nice to see these and the states for Cottage Bowl II.
