Howdy! So what's the status of this tournament? I'm looking forward to playing but maybe not as excited about a quadruple RR or something.

The tournament is still on for now. We’re at 4 teams so for now it’s 3x round robin, but I’ll be monitoring the situation closely and seeing if it changes.

Cool, thanks for the update, Tejas. I'm hearing that UF may bring 2-3 teams, so let's hope it's three, as that could get us to six teams.

PS--I'll have a good wireless buzzer with me.

Last I heard (literally yesterday), the field was at six with 2 teams from UF.

Also, Bhanodai and I are looking for teammates if anyone is bringing a team of 5 or anything.

Ah, I hope that's right, Chandler! It'll also be fun to play more teams and avoid a triple RR. See you there!
