Is there a particular reason this is being restricted to after July 2nd?

Because NASAT isn't until the weekend of June 24-25 and we are absolutely not allowing any mirrors before the main tournament. July 1-2 is the first weekend after NASAT.

I realized I goofed up on dates. It's actually available starting on July 1st.

For TDs of NASAT Mirrors: This list of people ineligible to play should be helpful.

Like last year, HSAPQ is looking for someone (or some group) that is interested in and capable of running a Skype mirror of NASAT in either July or August. Penn, very successfully, did this last year. If you're interested, let me know--e-mail address is in profile.

Just a reminder that HSAPQ is still interested in finding someone to run a Skype mirror of NASAT. If you're interested, please contact Mike!

Due to us wanting to see if a Skype mirror is feasible, we will be delaying the release of the NASAT set slightly. Thanks for your understanding, everybody!
