Update - Are We Going to Open it Up to 24 Teams?
The short answer is no.  Arranging the date and time for this tournament was a process of a lot of emails back and forth last May, and I only booked Sat and Sun - only really enough time for 16 teams.  From my understanding, 2 years ago, the tournament ran with 24 teams and some games were played until 2am.  Needless to say, I'm hearing a lot of advice that we should avoid 24 teams unless there's a better way to control the scheduling within a reasonable time.  With that said, the tournament management team has decided to hard cap it at 16 teams only.  I apologize to all of those which were not able to join in this year, and I welcome some suggestions on how to let everyone join in for next year.  Perhaps making the tournament an invitational again (like the way it was before the 90's)?  Or, running A/Bs one weekend, and C/Ds another weekend?  Feel free to write your feedback in our new Feedback section on the website.  It can be found on the left-hand-side menu.
