This tournament will now use IS-83, which will also be used at Huskie Bowl.

In addition, it is now PACE-affiliated.

Huskie Bowl has now switched to an HSAPQ set, so this is no longer a conflict! Woohoo!

Also, throwing the hat into the ring for freelance moderating, if you need it. If you still need people at the end of February, email Kristin and/or me and we'll check our schedules. We should be free.

Due to my error with dates, the date in the headline is wrong. The tournament will be held on Saturday, March 28, NOT March 29.

Perhaps a moderator can change this?

You should be able to fix this yourself by editing the topic of your initial post.

Just updated. Muscatine signed up today; so far, a very small field.

Up-to-date information is often available here.

No Pleasant Valley? That's quite disappointing to me. The contact over there would presumably be Kate Stangler, if you need someone to follow up with or anything.

According to your website, you have 7 teams. Why not just run a double RR + finals?

Regina signed up today. I am inclined to have as many rounds as possible, but finals should last only 3 rounds. I'll look at the schedule again....

If you have anyone fron this area reading for you, and you need another reader and they can give me a lift, I'll come and moderate for you.

Thanks for the offer Mr. Riley, but we have a small enough field that we have an abundance, and fortunately not a shortage, of help.

Since we had a lot of moderator offers this year and a fairly small field, we're looking at a different cost structure for next year, possibly allowing the first half of the field that provides a moderator and buzzer to be free.

There's still room for one (or three) more team(s), but I think we're about set with the current field.

Thanks to everyone who volunteered to moderate; we'll see about next year.
