Is it still possible to register a team/teams from E. O. Smith in CT? It appears that you have slots left, if your tournament is being set up with a cap of 24 (but I'm not sure about the C teams listed as waiting at the bottom of your entry). Thanks!

Michael (or anyone from the Scarsdale team),

I was wondering if the Scarsdale team has emailed or given out any more logistical information. I haven't been given notified of when registration starts or when the first round is expected to start or information like that. I'm expecting registration to be over and first round to start between 8:45 and 9:00, but something more official from the TD would be helpful.

Thank you!

We did send an email to teams and I thought your email was included but perhaps I mistyped your address or something. Sorry about that.

Registration will be from 815 to 840 with round 1 starting at 9.

Thank you to all that attended.

Congratulations to Kellenberg A on defeating Great Neck South A in the final round to win the tournament.

Congrats as well to Joe Levano from Kellenberg for winning top scorer.
