Re: MOQBA Novice Online-03/20/2021

A few things:

1. I anticipate expanding the field to 36 teams.

2. I'm submitting this tournament for sanctioning to MSHSAA on Thursday at 4 PM Central time, so any teams from outside the state of Missouri who aren't registered should fill out the registration form by then.
