Right now, it looks like Ted and I are teaming up for this. If you know science, or you just feel like it, email me (or Ted) if you want to join up.

Would either the Magin team or the Brendan team be willing to have me? Or for that matter any other team? I'll throw my hat in as a free agent.

Since my ride with the funvee is going to be there, I'm going to be there. If you need a staffer who's comically bad at pronouncing stuff or a player who's comically bad at getting points, look me up.

Edit: According to the field update, our team is me, Douglas Graebner, and Evan Adams, so we presumably still have a spot open.

If you want to join our team, you can post here, or e-mail me at byrne111@umn.edu

I'm apparently playing on two teams according to the current field update. I do not think I am up to this task.

I just noticed that my name has mysteriously materialized on the field list for this, even though I didn't sign up and am almost certainly not going to be able to play this tournament. I'm playing only the main event of VCU Open and the Music event. Sorry for any confusion.

I assume 8:30 is the approximate meeting time for this? We have a long drive and obviously we'd rather not be late.

Also, this will be held in the same building (Hibbs) that VCU's Spring Tournament from February was, right?

In the absence of the TDs from the board, I'll declare that this tournament will use the same timeframe as VCU Open, so yes, be there by 8:30.

This is correct.

Sorry for the confusion, John and Carsten. I grouped the free agents who did not form teams of their own into makeshift teams or added them to teams with open spots. Of course, everyone is welcome to change their team if they have a problem, just post it in the thread.

Not to single them out, but is TJ not coming? And I was hoping there would be another high school team...oh well. It'll still be fun.
