Correction: The tournament will take place in Howey Physics Building like all other GT tournaments, and not in the Instructional Center.

EDIT: Check-in has been moved up to 8:00 and Tournament start time has been moved up to 8:30

As this is Daylight Savings day, hopefully the hour of extra sleep makes up for a 1/2 hour earlier start time :).

To that end, please remember to set your clocks correctly if you are coming to account for the "going back one hour".
