Thankfully, I was eventually able to wake up and deal with this; Mike will be here. Also, anyone nearby who is interested in staffing, we would greatly appreciate your help so we don't have to pull too many people from the tournament field itself!

Okay, so as Gautam said, please try to be in the Mississippi Room (on the third floor of Coffman) by 9:30a tomorrow. I have a plan for running side events, but we can discuss that when we're all there.

I'd kind of like to see it now since some plans I have later are dependent on it.

Well, it was basically going to be "some sort of social event Saturday night, lit Sunday night, the latter played how we played the leftover MO lit packets at IO, unless there are any objections".

I'm leaving town on Sunday afternoon, so I'd appreciate if we could play the lit tournament on Saturday.

I'm not sure if I am available Sunday, so I would also prefer this.

Yeah, I would prefer playing both tournaments on Saturday. I am assuming we have the rooms until 11 p.m. This should hopefully be enough time to play both tournaments.

Also, I am fine playing solo or with whomever to make the numbers work.

You object, I listen. Lit is Saturday night!

EDIT: I should ask, any objection to doing it free-for-all style? Everyone'd be playing at once, one buzz per person per question.

http://collegiate.quizbowlpackets.com/s ... dings.html Final stats after all the round robins! Team Toxin + Antitoxin won by one game, but we didn't have any more packets to do an advantaged final so just went with that.

This was fun.
