We have a new (I believe) 6-dan registered for the tournament: Nick  
Jhirad. Shockingly, he's the only dan we've got so far. Please  
register so that we can give him a challenge!

Tournament info is included below, and can also be found here:

TRANSPORTATION: Parking on campus is free on the weekends. If you're

shuttle bus:


(Note that the shuttle route has changed slightly from last year.)

HOTEL: The Hilton Garden Inn in Lake Oswego will offer a discount
group rate. Double queen rooms are $84 per night. Call 503-706-7691 to
reserve your room before October 8.

FOOD: Bon Apetit has a monopoly contract for all catering on campus,
so it's a very bad deal for us to order coffee. Instead, we've
discovered that there is a coffee shop (Maggie's) open on campus. The
Fields Dining Room is also open for a buffet lunch. Info on both can
be found here:


Note that Maggie's doesn't open until 10:00 AM on the weekend, so if
you need an infusion of caffeine before your first round, bring
something along.
