Re: Penn Bowl 2018 Online Mirror (12/09/18)

Hi everyone, sorry for the confusion - Young had a personal emergency and will no longer be able to TD this mirror. Currently, there are ten teams (nine rounds) signed up, with potentially enough free agents for twelve teams (ten rounds). However, there are only two staffers available and Penn is un...

Re: Announcement: Penn Bowl 2018

To summarize, I know the number of teams limits your logistical options, but I think last year's format (with 36 teams) was significantly better. This is why I think directors should take format into account more when determining field caps. I know you want to let as many people as possible play th...

Re: Announcement: Penn Bowl 2018

All stats are now up, per several people's request I've uploaded two versions of the prelim stats - one with the crossover games and one without. Is an online mirror being planned for this set?

Re: Announcement: Penn Bowl 2018

We are almost at our field cap, so please register soon if you are planning to attend. We may be able to expand beyond 38 teams depending on how many staffers we are able to confirm - if any of the registered teams can send staffers (or anyone living in the Philly area would like to staff), we would...

Re: Announcement: Penn Bowl 2018

This pseudonym is grossly inappropriate; I can elaborate on the reasons if required, but its inappropriateness should be self-explanatory. I believe that this has been indicated in the past to the high school using this pseudonym. It is incumbent on Penn and all other tournament hosts to disallow t...

Re: Penn Open NASAT Mirror

Due to another scheduling change, we were able to secure rooms for the original date of August 12. We have decided to run the first ten packets of the set on July 15 and the second ten on August 12, alternating packets so the difficulty isn't skewed for the second mirror. Teams attending both can pa...
