Looking forward to the Summer Classic, we appreciate the teams that have already informed us of how to handle their Spring Classic registration. For those teams that have not yet responded to firstname.lastname@example.org (see above), please do so as soon as you can so that we can make the transistion on the website.
For those teams wishing to roll their payment to the Summer Classic, please do not forget to register for the Summer Classic if you are not already. We will begin transferring the registrations over, over the next few days, so please do not panic if you do not yet see your team as "ACCEPTED".
March 26, 2014 – 11:15 AM
The tournament directors are keeping a close eye on the weather forecasts and the current field conditions. At this time, we are not planning to make any cancellation decisions until Thursday evening, at the earliest.

All schedules are now posted under the "Schedules / Results" tab on the left side of the page.
For those that were not in attendance at the LIVE Tournament Draw, please remember that there is no "talent" difference between the "B1" and "B2" divisions. These "splits" were done randomly at the Draw.
In respect to the schedules themselves, no adjustments will be made other than typographical (uploading) errors that are brought to our attention. That being said, be sure to check the website periodically, including the day before the tournament begins, for any possible changes.
