Based on the poll results, this tournament will be held on February 12. The OP now reflects this and also contains a link to a team formation spreadsheet.

As the last collegiate mirror of ARCADIA is today, closed college teams who haven't yet played ARCADIA but are interested in doing so may also sign up for this mirror.

Just a reminder that there are now less than 2 weeks until this tournament. As of now, there are only 3-4 (including free agents) teams signed up, and we do not plan to run this mirror unless there is sufficiently more interest. Please sign up if you would like to play!

This tournament will be happening next Saturday after all! I will be closing registration at the end of this weekend, as long as an even number of teams are registered by then.

Given the amount of interest in this mirror, we are going to need some extra staff-- please fill out this Google Form if you're interested in staffing this tournament. I'm also tentatively capping the field at 8 teams now, until we can be sure that we'll have enough staff to allow more. EDIT: I somehow miscounted and 9 teams are currently signed up.

We are looking for a few players to form a 10th team to round out the field before we send out a logistics email. We will also need an extra staffer to do this. Please let me know if you are interested, and I will pay you double ($40 instead of $20) for signing up to staff on short notice.
If a 10th team does not form by midday tomorrow, then we'll run the tournament with 9 teams and everyone will be guaranteed 8 games instead of 9.
