Is there any particular reason the base fee for this tournament is $10 more than the base fee at other mirror sites? It's probably not going to make a huge difference as to whether or not we come, but it seems a little strange.

Oh yeah, and parking fees went up. What is it with the UCLA parking service?

I don't know if the TD emailed the teams or not, but due to construction at Bunche Hall (our original venue), we have changed our venue to 3105 Rolfe Hall.It can be found in the east wing of the hall.

Our webmaster (Ray Luo) is still waiting for the stats file from the stats keeper, and stats should be posted as soon he gets them.
Hope this helps.

Something about the Stanford/UCSD B game doesn't look right. I highly suspect that the actual score is 510-5 rather than 310-5.

Couldn't figure out what you meant, Dwight, until I noticed Stanford's 7.78 PPB. I'll bet you're right.
