I will staff this, and I encourage Canadians who did go staff the HSNCT to also staff this.

McMcgMcgiLL is coming to this. I am staffing, or coaching and calling clutch timeout's for the team. More teams should sign up. It's a great set.

Can we have an updated field list and a proposed schedule (will it just be RR+finals?)?

Field is updated. Two teams have expressed interest but have not properly registered via email.

The schedule will be a round-robin and finals. If the field balloons to 11, I might devise a shorter schedule since some teams have a ways to travel.

If any other people are interested, some of us are going out for a Summerlicious dinner at Annona (prix fixe, $45, Bloor & Avenue) on Sunday evening. If you'd like to come, let me know via FB / email / PM as soon as possible so I can get a table for the appropriate number of people.

Also, so that I can get an idea of what time to book, how long is the tournament expected to run?

You know I'm far away, Joe. Don't be so passive-aggressive.

Some more details about this tournament:

The likely schedule, given the small field, is a round robin, followed by a rebracket. Hopefully we will avoid the need for finals this way, but even if finals are required, we will probably finish relatively early.

We will meet at 8:30 AM. Over lunch, we will play the rock and roll audio questions. After we finish the tournament, we will resume BONGOS from where we left off.

Meeting place is the same as yesterday, outside 2114.

Jay Misuk and his caravan of players should be coming and playing. There's almost certainly going to be enough free agents or people who didn't bother emailing you and showing up anyways to form a 6th team.
