Dear all - 

Times:  The schedule is going to be the one that is listed online, I will be using the time slot for semi-finals, which is not going to happen, to run "Round 4".  This means all of your students are guaranteed 4 rounds and finals.  None of the events had enough entries to justify a semi-finals.   For clarification: the finals round will be using the finals topics.  I will make the Semi-Final questions available after the tournament for you personally to use as practice questions for your classrooms.

Judging: If you have any judges that are neutral to your students and/or school that you could bring, I would really appreciate that.  Because we are a small group, it's inevitable that all of our judging is going to get dirty real quick. 

Weather -  I will keep you posted on this, however, my district policy will dictate whether or not I am able to host this tournament.  Be praying, hoping, or meditating positive vibes and warm weather patterns.

Last: Please check your entries to make sure they are correct.
