It's a fast paced tournament (see the Past Tournaments link for more info) that we've run many times before. Most everyone, regardless of their skill level, finds this a fun tournament to be in.

There is no entry fee this tournament and Auxiliary Services is sponsoring the prizes (Bookstore gift certificates for students, and game room pool-time cards for Faculty/Staff).

If there are more than 16 entries it would become a multipart tournament (number of parts dependant on number of entries). Prizes would be to four places in each division (number of divisions depends on number of entries: two division for 16-36 players, three divisions for 40-60 players, four divisions for 64+ players).
