    Re: St. Thomas Tournament in MN

    And now it's snowing.

    I'm sure someone with a copy of the tab summary will post the full results. The top three teams, who received cool little plaques, were:

    1. Macalester 576 8-0
    2. Grinnell 616 6-2
    3. St. John's/St. Ben's 974 5-2-1

    Congrats to all, especially 576, who I had the pleasure of seeing twice, and who handed 974 its only losses. You guys are freaking awesome. I hope we have a rematch at regionals with us at full strength!

    Re: St. Thomas Tournament in MN

    I want to add my thanks to the organizers of the Hatting Invitational. You never know how well an invitational will go in its first year. So far as I know, St. Thomas had not hosted a tournament of any type since I started in AMTA back in 2000.

    I was amazed at how well this tournament was run. The challenge format was a fun way to start the festivities. The rounds ran nearly precisely on time. Those running the tournament were extremely friendly, helpful, and accomodating. Pairings were announced in a timely fashion, and the tab room as quite accessible. If I didn't know otherwise, I might well have thought that UST ran an invitational every year.

    I also wanted to comment on the facilities. The UST Law School is a very new school, and the building is spectacular. It puts the building at my law school alma matter Minnesota to shame. The classrooms were of ample size, and the moot courtroom, where one of my teams was able to compete twice, was amazing. The acoustics in that room made things really fun. I've heard good things about UST Law in terms of building a strong faculty very quickly; I won't be surprised to see that school quickly become more prominent in the law school world.

    I also look forward to competing again at this tournament next year. My teams and I very much enjoyed ourselves, and we hope the organizers will have us back.

    On a personal note, I also enjoyed seeing Laura and Daniel. I'm sure Daniel is already dominating at UVA Law, and Laura will soon follow.

    Wow. I have to give big props to the ND people on the awards list. All three are first year college mockers. Way to go, guys.

    Re: St. Thomas Tournament in MN

    I'll echo that it was a well run tournament. The facility was nice and there were three lawyers judging nearly every round. They never needed me to judge which was wonderful because I got to watch 4 Mac rounds and meet all the promising young talent.

    The "security system" was funny.

    On that young talent, all I have to say is "................holy @&*^"

    Congrats to all the guys who got awards. Having all awards from Mac go to guys has gotta be a first. I didn't see the Chris or Paul on the side they got awards but I've seen them many times so I'm not surprised. I'm actually surprised Riley didn't get one on both sides but it must've been close. Herschel, you've come a long way. I figured you for one after that opening. I'd imagine there were a number of near misses from Mac as well. Everyone is in a good place and everyone knows what they need to do before regionals.

    If you send 2 teams to gold, I'll figure out a way to get there.
    But you look too young to be a lawyer.

    Small nit to pick - 927's CS was 12, not 2.

    Besides that, it was a great experience, and as a note to Rain King, nearly all of the ND participants were first year mockers, and for many this was their first competition as well...

    Re: St. Thomas Tournament in MN

    I'm curious as to whether anyone has an electronic version of the tab summary, as I haven't seen one on the AMTA site.
