Hi. There’s lots of important information here. Pull up a chair and settle in.

First, thanks to all for patience today. We had to re-pair a round by hand, which is tedious and time-consuming. (How did people tab back in the day? Amazing.) Unfortunately, the time consumed cost us our ability to have our VLD run-off and JV doubles tonight. We will have them tomorrow instead.

Both divisions will be distributing ballots in LC 211 for the whole day. Tab will be in LC 212. Because of the tough schedule, we will have to move ballots as quickly as possible. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in this. We might have to push ballots to keep things moving, but the less we have to do this, the better for everyone. The best thing to do is stay put for your next ballots after you drop off your last ballots for fast turnaround (although we will try to get runners to you). Keeping critiques down to a minimum is also a good idea.

For VLD, our first round, the run off for 4-2s and up, will be at 8:00. All judges are obligated for this round, and also for the doubles round that follows. This obligation allows us to insure the best possible preferences. After that, the usual one-after-participation will hold, although the more folks who hang around, the better for all.

VLD schedule:

7:30 Ballot distribution in LC 211

 

8:00 Run-off (double-flighted unless we all get extremely lucky, but I’m not counting on it)

10:30 Doubles

1:00 Octas

2:30 Quarters

4:00 Semis

5:30 Final

 

JVLD will also start tomorrow at 8:00. All judges are obligated for the first round, then the usual one-after, although we’re happy to accommodate folks who want to keep at it. 

JVLD schedule:

7:30 Ballot distribution in LC 211

 

8:00 Doubles

10:30 Octas

12:00 Quarters

2:00 Semis

3:30 Final

 

Again, thanks to everyone for helping make this happen.
