You should clerify that Robyn. I'm sure you'd like to take credit for Ben's tournaments but I won't let you!

I would also suggest for the sportsmanship scores: if any 1/3 show up, they should be investigated and verified. That way, if there was a problem it can be addressed before the next person has to deal with it. It will make it more enjoyable for everyone.

*sigh* I did NOT run any of the tournaments in Prince Albert, although I don't know why anyone would think I was claiming that. AND.. I didn't do them all alone, I had alot of help..

So clarification number 2.. I did not run everything myself.

I feel like a politician now.. Im just happy to see some more stuff going on!

One question for LoreWeaver - 3 points for Victory, 1 point for Loss.. nothing about draws. Trying to discourage people playing-for-draws with last turn turbo-boosts, or merely an oversight?

What are the rules on spectators? I'm not interested in playing, but I would certainly like to watch.

Bummer, I will be helping my girlfriend move back to Regina so I won't be able to play. But like HC just said, I'd love to stop by and check it out for a bit if I get back into town early enough.

Format doesn't allow for draws, so I'm breaking them by use of VP's (should be mentioned in the doc above)

My bad, twas an oversight. I won't be able to play (Way too early for me, I'm usually heading TO bed around 7-8 AM), but I'll likely show up in the afternoon to watch the tail end if there's room and no objections to spectators.
