As usual, Byram will be withdrawing, because a :chip: tournament came up. *sigh*

Re: BATE 2.0, (3/7/09), @Bloomfield High School, NJ (mACF)

On some Westchester schedule (mainly of the local :chip: tournaments) it was listed as either the 7th or the 14th but that could have just been speculation on the part of whoever typed up the schedule.

Put Byram down tentatively for 2 teams- I'll fill out the official registration after running it by the coach. I may be mistaken, but NAQT States for NY is currently between this weekend and the weekend after. You might want to check that, as it would probably impact attendance.

Re: Byko Rankings 2008-2009

Do you have the results for the Yale Fall Tournament? Only one match is in the database from the tournament- I'm just wondering if that's just all you've inputted or if that's all you have. If you're missing some results, I can give you some, although not all.

Re: BHSAT XVIII (3/28/2009) at Yale (New Haven, CT)

Byram will bring two teams, one buzzer. I know this is way early, but I'd end up forgetting to put us down and then we'd lose the early registration bonus. Might as well be on my A game.
