This location is tentative.  I had hoped to book a better location on campus but the usual places were booked for part or all of the weekend already.  If anyone has an alternative venue that is suitable in a short amount of time, feel free to e-mail me.  I will follow up with a confirmation e-mail two days before the tournament.

If you plan on playing in this tournament, let me know so I can get a head start on registration.

Also, at this tournament an announcement will be made regarding the NL Governor position.
