Hi everyone, this tournament will be happening this weekend. The field is now closed at 6 teams and a logistics email was sent out to all team contacts and free agents (who've been assigned). See everyone in Austin on Saturday!

One important last minute change, because of a late update from UT's room reservation department, this tournament will take place in Parlin Hall instead of Mezes Hall as originally announced. Opening meeting will be in Parlin Hall 302. All team contacts got an email reflecting this change.

See everyone in Austin tomorrow morning,
Ryan.

This tournament happened today! Thanks to everyone who attended and to Jason, Graham, and Ryan for serving as moderators.

Texas A went 10-0 to win the tournament without needing a final, Texas B+ finished in 2nd at 7-3, Ignation Nation finished in 3rd place, and the aptly-named "Fourth Place" finished in... 4th place. Benji Nguyen ("Fourth Place") was the top individual scorer, and William Golden, Jaskaran Singh, Adam Escandel, and Brad McClain rounded out the top 5.

Full stats can be found here:

Thanks again to everyone who played and staffed this event!
