Hello all,

 

I believe all of the judges are in and so we can open up the strike system. In order to strike a judge, you can go to the "prefs" tab. Instructions are here: http://docs.tabroom.com/Prefs (though this document talks a bit more about mutual preferencing, which we are not using, the process is very similar)

In policy, each entry is allowed to strike 5 critics. In Open LD, each entry is allowed to strike 13 critics. The strike system will stay up until 12:05 AM Saturday morning.

I know there are a lot of judges out there without paradigms. If those are your school's judges, and they could put one up this evening/tomorrow morning, that would be great. I found in tabroom a couple of ways to encourage paradigms before the tournament, and we'll probably be using those next year, but it's a little too late this year- my apologies.

I can add some basic info about the L&C hired judges:
