I, Bradley McLain, will be serving as TD. We are soft capping this event at 24 teams. We have moved the date from the usual first weekend of October date due to conflicts that several teams have brought to my attention. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes

We will be mirroring WHAQ III for this event. More Information on this set can be found here.

FEE STRUCTURE:
$65 per team, $60 for all B, C, ... teams
-$5 per buzzer system (up to -$10)
-$10 for each staffer, with a laptop (as needed, first come first serve).
-$10 for each 200 miles traveled, one way
Minimum fee: $40
For Illinois teams that only played IHSA and/or Masonic Events last year, the entry fee is $30.

Well of course today is the day my printer dies on me. We only have 8 paper schedules so here is the prelim schedule. I'll use the university printers to get the playoff schedule printed so that we have enough paper copies.

Congratulations to IMSA A for winning this year's Earlybird!

Uni A, Auburn A, and Stevenson A round out the top 4.

The SQBS is up. It is missing a few things that will be fixed in the next few days.
Thank you Bryan Lu for creating a parser to convert the Neg5 stats to SQBS. We will be sharing this once we finish testing it so that everyone can use it.

Is there any chance you've finished testing this?

I'm gonna run one more test tonight. Sorry for the delay with this, it has been a bit hectic.
