I want to thank Brent and his crew for a wonderful tournament in Cleveland, and of course Neil Butt for doing a great job in tab room. The laid back environment, wonderful hospitality and old friends helps the tournament feel more like a family reunion than a debate competition.

I second Donny's thanks. Again, Brent and the JCU crew hosted a great tournament, excellent food and good competition.

The WVU contingent had a great time as well.  Thanks to Brent, Neil, and the JCU squad for a fine tournament.  Thanks also to Nick Ryan for keeping people posted on elims day (though he had to walk a fine line between keeping people posted and bragging about his teams!).  Congrats to the Flames, Patriots, and Wolverines!

I would also like to thank the folks who provided us some extra judging in round 6 to make things work.

And also thanks to Jim Lyle and Chris Schroeder, who stuck around to judge finals, and Brian Smith, who came BACK to the tournament to judge finals.
