Does this imply that there will be a div. B tournament as well? I remember meeting some people (perhaps you were one!) at the NYS div. B tournament that were gauging interest - hoping that comes to fruition!

We have looked very seriously into holding Div. B tournament, and will announce a date very soon, once the final arrangements have been made.

Especially cost-wise; cost seems like a major barrier for Avogadro. There's other stuff too, but $100 for Avogadro vs. free for chalker's spreadsheet is very enticing (and chalker's sheet is significantly easier to understand and teach to people quickly, plus it can be run with less hassle for event sups).

Ezra will likely be priced right in the $100 per license range as well (although we will likely give discounts for the first year as well as for bulk orders). Like our competitors, Ezra will offer a core online scoring system, but with new features integrated into the system (ex. the ability to fill out a build event score sheet online instead of on paper). Since this software is being developed by people who have run tournaments, the added-on features to the scoring portion of the system have been developed to make the day of the competition run more smoothly from a scoring standpoint.

The major standout point for Ezra is that it combines an efficient online scoring system with numerous auxiliary features. Imagine having one system that handles your registration, processing of team forms, assignment of volunteers to events, scoring, communication with Event Supervisors the day of the tournament, presentation of event scores, and creation and posting of the final scores at the end of the tournament.
What we are trying to achieve with Ezra essentially combines a few different programs that tournament officials use (i.e. typeform, groupme, some scoring software, powerpoint, etc.) into one package.

Additionally, behind Ezra will be a support team that will provide the highest quality service. We will be developing tutorial videos to guide even the least computer-literate customer through the software, and will offer online, over-the-phone, and in person tech support.
