I suppose I can't blame you if this is the only day you could reserve rooms, or if you did so before knowing that Maryland's EFT mirror would be the same day, but it would be reasonable to assume that this could lead to relatively few teams attending this tournament.

Also, as I've noted for the last two iterations of this tournament, if you're charging registration fees per player, you should include how many players will be going as a field in the registration form.

This, but in a much less condescending manner.

I have no real input in this, but it would be a shame if some of the stronger novice teams missed out on an opportunity to play EFT due to this scheduling conflict.

Thanks for the flexibility! Hopefully new players will be able to get a broad range of experiences with college quiz now :party:
