Just a reminder that this tournament is happening!

I know it's early in the semester, but if you could get in your registration by the end of the week, that would be great, as it would help us reserve enough rooms.

This tournament happened. Congrats to OSU for winning in a final against Illinois, and a sincere thanks to all the teams who came for braving the weather and putting up with the accompanying delays in getting the tournament started. I appreciate your commitment and desire to play quizbowl, and I hope you enjoyed the set.

Speaking of the set, there's a private discussion forum for its discussion should anyone want to give feedback; it'd be greatly appreciated.

There are also staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaats.
