I don't want to be a pendent (though I'm sure you understand the impulse), but how will seeding be done for this tournament?

A team shotgun race will be held before the tournament to determine seeding. It's definitely a better thing to base seeding on than silly stuff like PPB.

Hello Penn Bowl teams!

As stated in the original post, the tournament will be starting at 9:00 AM, please meet in SS2101 (Sid Smith Hall, 100 St. George Street) at 8:30. We have 6 teams so we'll be doing a double round robin with possible advantage finals. As usual, there are various lunch options around campus. No TTC delays or road closures that I'm aware of. Let me know if you have any questions, and see you all tomorrow!

Congratulations to McGill A!

Also, shout out to Meghan Torchia for an extremely well-run event. Thank you for proving that Canada is not completely and utterly useless by being a true Spanakopita. Epistles will be written about you!
