Hey, is there a field update for this? Or is it really just 2 teams?

Given that Isaac seems to be more interested in playing Reach for the Top than making tournaments he's involved with actually happen...well, we can all draw our own conclusions here.

As far as I know, there are two house teams and two U of T teams. The editors have allowed the addition of scab teams at a TBD extra cost to bring the field size to a good even number and make everyone's schedule a bit nicer.
