If this is, in fact, a CALI mirror, Lexington will have three teams and a buzzer set with no staffers.

What constitutes New England for that discount? Also, are the Out of State and Out of New England discounts cumulative or exclusive? That is, will a school from out of New England, which necessitates being outside of Massachusetts, receive both for a total of $25 off, or just the latter for $15 off?

15 Dollars off for out of New England teams. (So only 15 not 25). (NY is not New England).

If this is not a mirror of Columbia as I have heard then A-B will bring two teams and a buzzer

Hey Abhinav, just a reminder that we're playing as "Four Idiots" and not for Phillips Andover. Thanks!

Is there an idea what the format is going to look like and what time you expect this tournament to be done yet?

Also, do we need to preorder pizza for lunch? If so, what is the cost?
