Copy of the email I sent out.

Hello tournament attendees! If you are receiving this email, it means you have registered for at least one of McMaster's tournaments happening this weekend (Missouri Open and/or MacVanity). This is just a general announcement that applies to both tournaments.

Please arrive by 9:00am in the McMaster University Student Centre (MUSC) in Room 203. If you happen to have buzzers, please arrive a bit early to account for setting them up and making sure they are in working order. At 9:00am, we will begin to go through the schedule and format of the tournament in greater detail.

If you have any additional questions, be sure to email me and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks, Peter Cordeiro

I just want to give a big thanks for everyone for coming out, and of course for all my fellow staffers who made this tournament possible. A special thanks to Rico for dealing with all those delays, yet still giving up his time to staff in the afternoon.

Congratulations to #NoLivesMatter made up of Rein Otsason, Faheem Pahlwan, and Aayush Rajasekaran, who with an 8-1 record, won our Missouri Open mirror outright!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out for this tournament and made it a good day. Our staff were great (some of them had never even staffed before!), and I think Peter did a good job running everything pretty much by himself. And the competition was a lot of fun, I really liked those packets!

This was a very enjoyable weekend! I was very impressed with both your tournament directing, Peter, and by the moderation staff!
