We look forward to welcoming so many of you to our tournament in early November. It looks like it is going to be huge.

Here are some news items:

1. Registration. Policy registration will open on tabroom.com website very soon. We are excited to welcome Christy Webster Dunn of West Point to do policy tab again this year. She took last year off to have a beautiful baby, and we are grateful for her support this year. WUDC registration continues via email. So, many of you who have said you are coming now need to actually send in your entries. We will need to do food planning within 10 days and we need a good set of numbers. Please indicate dietary preferences so we can make sure to feed you food that tastes good, is healthy and doesn't make you sick due to allergies.

3. Transportation. Those from Boston and NYC should really consider using the Megabus. It is cheap, convenient, and it goes from midtown Manhattan as well as South Station right to where the tournament is on our campus.
