Another important bulletin: Lunch will be scheduled around 2 PM, unless I hear back from Dave that this is not possible. This will in theory help you endure longer into the night rounds. Plan any snacks you bring accordingly.

This is possible, and has been arranged. Pizzas will arrive at 2pm. I will have breakfast baked goods and juice in lieu of cookies, in case anyone cares at this late hour.

In Soviet Russia, Tournament Edits You dropped a game by 10 points to Dharma and Greg Bums, leaving a ton of teams at 12-3. If The Ignaz von Dollinger Escape Plan beats J-J-J-Jack Knife, then they will win the tournament. Otherwise, I believe there will be an advantaged file between Ignaz and the 13-3 team with the best bonus conversion. (Although since our reservation supposedly ends at 10 PM, who knows what's actually going to happen in that case...)

I'd like to thank all involved in running this for making CO a well-run and enjoyable tournament. Definitely making the 10hr drive from Canada again next year! Also, that pizza was top-notch ;)
