The regional tournament assignments are now posted and can be accessed at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__va-2Ddcfll.org_2015-2Dtournament-2Dassignments&d=BQIF-g&c=eLbWYnpnzycBCgmb7vCI4uqNEB9RSjOdn_5nBEmmeq0&r=J5fb0ELkRoh7TzAGYz99sSMvB-c7i4AC0HDT2OVPrww&m=8DxFLJsbCCe3IzCD19d98u1X-sSEsa89d7EZj-wXJRc&s=ijD9jsG493R1uQsbTCugXfpgqFRiiS9HAUMp2vmmGww&e= <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__va-2Ddcfll.org_2015-2Dtournament-2Dassignments&d=BQMFaQ&c=eLbWYnpnzycBCgmb7vCI4uqNEB9RSjOdn_5nBEmmeq0&r=J5fb0ELkRoh7TzAGYz99sSMvB-c7i4AC0HDT2OVPrww&m=ZIoRlNCQc1MBSRcWYrwY5Zw1Xt9Iv6SGlrv7tOj9-qQ&s=KtdMpwrmO8-Wkdw2FZhMHriaFYFFRAxpXrlqmCf4oPs&e=>/. They can be sorted different ways so you can look up your assignments by team number or by tournament. Make sure to look at the team numbers as with almost 500 teams competing there are multiple teams with the same or very similar names. Please also check to ensure that your division is correct (this is based on birthdays that were entered so if they are correct, you are in the correct division). Tournament assignments were made on a first-come, first-serve basis and a few tournaments were limited to only a single division because not enough teams from the other division selected those events (Manassas, Chantilly, Woodbridge and Abingdon). We were able to get just over 85% of teams into their first choices. If you did not get your first choice, itís because that event was already full by the time your registration came up. While every effort was made to get those teams into the 2nd or if necessary, 3rd choices, there is a small number of teams that we were not able to place into any of their 3 choices. In those cases, an effort was made to match them with an event based on the dates and locations of their 3 choices and picking the best matches. If you did not your first choice, please do not email us asking us to switch you into that event. It is full and we will not have space open up (teams do not drop out of events). The ONLY events in the state with open space are listed below. 11/7/15: Newport News, Richmond 1, Glen Allen, Christiansburg, Harrisonburg, Alexandria, Ashburn, Manassas (div 1 only) 11/14/15: Abingdon, Lynchburg 11/21/15: Norfolk, Staunton, Stafford Any tournament or division changes will have to happen very soon as I plan to get the team lists to the tournament directors early next week (the earlier I get those lists out, the earlier they can send you welcome emails). You can expect to get a welcome email from your tournament director sometime in the next few weeks that will have general information about their event (location, general timeline, what to expect, etc.). Please do not expect to have a detailed schedule until the event itself, though many tournaments will send out tentative schedules about a week before the event (these are subject to change so your team should plan to be at the event for the entire time). Thanks and we look forward to seeing you all at one of the 25 regional tournaments in November!
