I am planning to play/signing up for this tournament.

I can play solo or with teammates. Whatever makes the tournament run better works for me.

I am TD'ing this tournament. You can register by e-mailing me in addition to the contact information in the announcement.

In regards to the open teams, I would encourage responsible team formation, but I would highly discourage (and not allow) anything close to resembling a superteam. That said, staff and team constraints may require some merging of teams within reason, so we'll see what develops. For the expected field, though, I would say there is no reason why Top 25 caliber players should be playing together (unless, of course, they are actually teammates).

NEW RUNNING FIELD
Allium, the Civil Liberties Onion (Rob Carson/Bernadette Spencer/possible others)
Respect What He's Done...Not That You've Got to Love Him (Brendan Byrne and friends)
Minnesota (4 teams)
Carleton (1 team)
St. Thomas Academy team

If they take different cars and separate by gender, you could have a car of cheerful miss demeanors. Ha ha ha--enjoy the buffet!

Yes, it is. Please note the difficulty of the tournament, however.

Contact me with any further concerns (including discounts, etc.).
