During the tournament brackets will come out in the same order as the tournament divisions are scheduled above.

You will not be able to see what your bracket looks like until approximately 30 mintues before you division start time.  (Please do not look for your bracket online because we do not post them online, they are actually made the day of the tournament.)

Brackets are put together throughout the day and their completion times are in accordance with the tournamnet schedule you see above.

When you are at the tournament please do not freak out if you don't see your name on a set of brackets. Look at the bracket closely. Take your time to determine if it is indeed the bracket you should be in in.

At the tournament, if you have a specific question please see The Good Fight mat manager.
