Location: Teams should meet in Room 120 of the Humanities building. Signs will be posted. Teams should arrive by 8:45.

Parking: The closest and most convenient parking is in the Founder's Court Visitors lots. These lots are most easily accessed through Entrance 1 and are the first parking lots visible around the sallyport (the big arch entrance to the academic quad). The daily maximum for parking is ten dollars. If teams have time to kill and want to save nine dollars, one dollar parking is available over a mile away behind the stadium in the Greenbriar lot at Entrance 13. Please do not park anywhere on the Inner Loop. You will get ticketed and towed.

Getting to the Humanities Building: Teams should enter through the sallyport and proceed to the building on the far left corner of the quad with the tower. Willy's statue is facing the sallyport and away from the humanities building, if you get confused. Signs will be posted.

At this point, it might end up be a triple round robin. UT and A&M have yet to sign up, but they'll probably field teams.
