Does this tournament have a field at all? (If not, then why not? UCLA and UCI should register immediately.)

All we officially have right now is UCSD. Any updates from ASU or Caltech?

Caltech will send a team if we can find transportation.

As I told Alex, I can't make it on Sunday. Presumably the rest of the club will be discussing whether or not they can send a team without me.

Thanks to UCLA and UCSD for coming today, as well as to those who staffed. The tournament was mostly successful, with Auroni emerging victorious by leading his one-man team to victory after three round robins. Shame on the absent schools for not sending some competition; let's try to make a better showing at MAGNI.
