Hey, could this be hosted on a Sunday instead of scheduled directly against an academic tournament? Thanks!

If this is changed to Sunday, I can say with approximately 85% certainty that Brandeis will send a team.

Not that it's overly feasible, but is there any chance this will be run anywhere in the Upper Midwest?

It's at Michigan the day after, as far as I know, we're attending FIST at Michigan. The ten-hour drive may preclude us staying, though.

Yeah, that's why I was asking--I wasn't even sure if I was going to FIST.

Oh hey, if I don't end up going, I can write some freelance stuff for FIST, much like I did with T-Party last year, if that's what you're getting at.
