If Waterloo 1 wins this game, they’re tied with Toronto. Michael and Jessica (both Toronto) are still the top individuals, but they had an exhibition game last round, so their scores haven’t been updated yet.

Note that the scores are a little wild now, as there is one exhibition game (where the two tiers crossover) per round.

4:10 PM Toronto just beat Waterloo 4 in the first game of the playoff rounds. An interesting development, as Waterloo 4 was the only team that beat Toronto in the preliminaries!

3:45 PM Preliminary stats are now up.

3:38 PM As the scores are being tabulated, everybody’s having some fun with drawings on the chalk boards.

3:27 PM Final round completed, now people are gathering in the “command centre” as I begin to tabulate the final scores. They’ll be posted and uploaded in a few moments.

12:02 PM A bit of a glitch – the teams were given to me in a mixed-up order and I didn’t realize there were no powers, so I had to re-enter the first round scores. Generating the report now.

11:40 AM First round is over, and the scoresheets are in. Time to enter scores into the system.

10:57 AM I’m in MC 4044, where we have Waterloo 3 vs Waterloo 2. FYI this is the buzzer room. We also have a scorekeeper from Guelph.

10:56 AM And we are ready to go! Off to sit in a room and observe. (I’m statskeeper, so I won’t have much to do until scoresheets come in.)

10:52 AM We’re about to start. Huma’s explaining the rules and general logistics right now.

10:42 AM Guelph has arrived now! Just need to get their fees and names.

10:39 AM Just waiting for Guelph now… Waterloo 1′s team name is coming in.

10:26 AM There is at least one reader of this live-blog now! More teams being formed now. Waterloo 1 and 2 are entered into the system.

10:16 AM Toronto and Guelph have arrived, and we have two (?) Waterloo teams now. Starting to get a bit loud/lively here.

9:52 AM People are finally beginning to trickle in!

9:19 AM We accidentally set up the buzzers in the room with the lower-tier playoffs. Whoops! It’s fixed now, so the finals will be played with buzzers.

9:10 AM Whoops, teams are supposed to arrive at 10:00. Well, at least we’re all set up now.

9:00 AM Teams are supposed to arrive now, but none have shown up yet. We’re beginning to set up rooms.

8:41 AM I arrived early to MC 4045. Looks like we have six teams and two (?) slap rooms due to lack of buzzers.
