Hey!

With just a few days left to go to this tournament, here is the field we have right now:

Carleton (3)
St. Thomas (1)
Minnesota (3)

I'll be sending out a more detailed message to teams sometime later in the week, but for now, know that this will be taking place in Coffman Memorial Union, and the starting time, as announced, will be 10 AM.

Thanks,

Final stats have been posted.

Thanks to all who came. There were some excellent games in our room, and I heard general praise for all players from other moderators. Congrats to MN A and St. Thomas, and to all the scorers.

EDIT: Some more details

MN A beat St. Thomas in a one game final 355-230. In case anyone was wondering, we did have each teams play 7 rounds, in accordance with the rules. However, one of those rounds was against a pseudo-exhibition team consisting of, at various times, James Heaney of St. Thomas and Eliza Grames and Robin Heinonen of Minnesota, but it wasn't entered into the official stats.
