: Since tonight's tourney comes after December's

: Tonight will be a special New Years Eve
: The format will be three 100-point rounds

: 100-point final round for the 4 finalists.
: The winner will receive a special prize for
: tonight's tourney, and this will still give
: east-coasters time to ring in the new year.
: The scoring will be different than EOM/EOY

: address to receive your prize!
: Happy New Years to all!
