We have 105 pre-entries as of 3:00 PM today. We will be providing some power strips (in case you forget yours or plugs become scarce). We have 4 licensed tournament directors for our event: Steve Dillard, John Simons, Miami Fugatte, and Randas Burns. Food will be for sale at the event but feel free to bring your own.

 

Teams that have signed up in advance will have reserved seating. We're trying to provide seating based on th enumber of entries. Some schools have let us know the approximate number of adults who will be there. Wehave 400+ chairs and if for some reason that is not enough we can open the bleachers and we have ordered an additional 20+ tables just in case.

Thank you all so much for hosting a great event.  The costumes created an awesome atmosphere and the tournament was a lot of fun.  Nice job to all of those who helped put it on.

No problem Alan.

We'll be running the November 16th tournament too (Grade Level Championships). All games in all sections were finished by 1:40 PM with the exception of 3 K5 games which went a bit longer. Trophies were handed out shortly thereafter.

We had 116 pre-registrations and around 135 kids or so. Our TD to player ratio was 1:35 which was pretty good. Not bad for a first event of the year for us!
