Bumping again because I've realized that I misnamed the team formation sheet, which may have led some to believe that you can only put a team name once registered. This is not the case. Sorry about any confusion.

Hi all,

It brings me absolutely no joy to report that, in light of NAQT's decision to cancel ICT, we have in turn decided to cancel this event. The risk incurred by bringing so many people together at this time is too high to justify. I hope that Maryland eventually concedes an online mirror to compensate for these extraordinary circumstances, and that everyone who signed up gets the opportunity to play this set blind.

Take care of yourselves.

To the teams and players who would still like to play Terrapin Open, I've set up a date poll to hold an online mirror that you can vote on here.
