Registration will be live until Friday for this SCT site, against the possibility of last-minute registrations (however unlikely those may be).

We ran a merged field yesterday, due to insufficient teams in D1.

Cornell A won, followed by Cornell B and RPI A. The top scorer was Cornell B's Matt Moschella.

Thanks to Roger Solberg from Edinboro for filling in as reader for a sick house staffer, to Scott Kroner from NY MasterMinds for reading in the morning, and to the teams for bearing with me through the weather and the date change. Stats are online at http://www.naqt.com/stats/tournament-te ... nt_id=4749
