Can I assume this is a fully open tournament in general?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooo! I can't make that date.

I will forward this on to my non-forum-reading teammates, however.

Congrats to The Bus That Could Not Slow Down (aka the comically stacked team of Rob Carson, Andrew Hart, Carsten Gehring and Mike Cheyne) who ran the table to win today's tournament. Thanks to everyone came out and to Mac for hosting - this was a really great day.
