TJMST's field cap has just been expanded to 30. We may expand the field to 36 depending on interest and staffer availability. If you have already signed up, please confirm rosters in NAQT by the 21st.

Due to logistical issues, we must postpone TJMST to February 15th. To compensate for the sudden reschedule, we plan to add a ten dollar discount for teams that still come to TJMST, on top of any other discounts already applied. This discount will be per individual team.
