I haven't decided about a JV division... If there is sufficient interest, then we will likely have one.

Please let me know ASAP if you plan to attend.

This event is in serious jeopardy of being canceled due to lack of teams.

ASFA would like to take 1 varsity (we could split it into two teams if you really need us to, our backup players need playing time) and 1 JV. I don't think my sponsor actually received a formal invitation or anything (at least not since last time I talked to her, about a week ago).

You guys go ahead and plan to come read if you can.

I will probably let our teams play if we have enough readers. They need the practice on good questions.

Edmonson County B and C are probably better labeled Edmonson County Middle School A and B, for Byko purposes.

We're really looking forward to this tournament. It's always well-run, and I've been impressed with HSPAQ so far.

Lee--

We won tonight's playoff game, so I won't be able to bring a full squad up there, but I am going to check on Monday to see if I can muster at least one varsity team and one JV to make the trip. I'll try to give you an absolute answer no later than Wednesday, but please pencil us in for those two tentatively if possible.

Lee, A couple of questions

1) Will the bonuses be bounce back?

2) Are there negs?

3) What is the structure of the tournament? (i.e how many teams are in each pool, what is the playoff structure ect)
