We'll definitely be there with one team and one buzzer system. We might bring a second team of freshmen who I assume wouldn't have to write a packet...

This a just a little thread bump to remind the other teams in the Northeast that this tournament exists and that the +$25 packet deadline for this tournament at our site is tonight and the +$50 deadline is a week from tonight.

Registration will start at 8:30. The tournament begins at 9:00. The entire tournament is going to be held on the second floor of WLH (William L. Harkness Hall). Tournament HQ will be either room 204 or 205. I'll reiterate this information in an e-mail that will also have my cell number and a map for parking.

Thanks for a great tournament guys!

Eric Mukherjee cleared the field, followed by Yale B, then Harvard. Teams that still owe money (looking at you, Columbia, Harvard, and Mukherjee) can send checks payable to Y Student Academic Competitions to Danila Kabotyanski, P.O. Box 201937, New Haven, CT 06520

Note that when Danila says "Yale B," he actually means "Yale A," since Yale B was collapsed at the end of the first round-robin. Note also that Eric Mukherjee is actually Eric Mukherjee + friends.
