This is awesome. I'll be talking to our coach about this on Friday. You can probably expect a non-zero, non-one number of teams, but we'll have to see.

Expect at least two teams from us.
Jeffrey Li
Mission San Jose High '11
Berkeley '15

But I shall forgive you. Some things are beautiful because they cannot be obtained.

Registration will be at 9 am. Play will begin between 9:30 to 9:45, and end (we hope) between 4 and 5 pm. Obviously the exact schedule will depend on how many teams we end up with.

I'm capping the field at the existing 12 because we're running short on staff. Additional teams will be allowed in off the waitlist if they are willing to provide moderators.

Congratulations to Bellarmine A and Mission San Jose A for qualifying for the 2011 HSNCT! I have applied for PACE affiliation and will post in this thread once I hear back from the PACE certification committee.

Thanks again to all the teams that attended, and I hope to see everyone at future Berkeley tournaments later this winter.

Though I couldn't compete today, I want to thank Jeff and the rest of Berkeley for hosting this tournament. We don't often see IS-sets, especially this early in the year, and having talked to the rest of my team, they said it was well-run and a pleasure to attend.
