Depending on how many teams show up (only 6 teams have confirmed
so far), we might not have enough teams for a knockout tournament. Instead, I'll organize some games among whichever teams show up in a round robin style, which will consist of three 30-minute games with 10 minutes of break in between each game, followed possibly by a final match between the two teams with the best record. This is in some ways better than a knockout tournament because each team is guaranteed to play at least three games.
The “Parade of States Lineup” starts at 5:15, so I want the games to be finished by 3:30 to ensure that there is enough time for everyone to relax and get ready before the evening activities. This means, we need to start by 12:30 for us to finish on time. Trial events run until 1:30 pm, so anyone on your team doing a trial event will have to miss your first game.
Here is the schedule for the games

Please show up on time so we can get started quickly! Be sure to bring water, sunscreen, and any discs that you have! I will go over the rules before we start.
If you're coming and you haven't replied to my email yet, please post here that you're coming so I know how many teams to expect.
