A BIG thanks to Kim Reedy for getting the technical issues fixed and getting the tournament assignments posted this evening!!! The regional tournament assignments are now posted and can be
accessed at http://va-dcfll.org/2015-tournament-assignments/.
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, it’s 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.
Newport News, Richmond 1, Glen Allen, Christiansburg, Harrisonburg, Alexandria,
Ashburn, Manassas (div 1 only)
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!
