A very special thanks to all our referees. We wouldn't have been able to pull this off without you. Thank you for giving up your weekends for this - especially during the very hectic 1st/2nd rounds. Also, a thank you to the staff that helped in planning/execution - even if you weren't a part of the referee team.
A big "thank you" to our ijji sponsors. GM_Jaquio for assisting in coordination and the opening ceremony, GM_Etoile for her support on the ijji Lunia forums, and "that ijji guy"**
for helping coordinate the prizes and rules. You guys have all been great to work with and I look forward to many more successful tournaments.
Finally, last but not least, a huge "thank you" to all of our participants. There's absolutely no way we could have pulled off a tournament this big without you all. We had some challenges to overcome but all in all everything went pretty smoothly. We got some great matches to watch and I look forward to seeing you all back in April.
** "that ijji guy", to my knowledge, doesn't have a GM name and I don't know if he wants his real name used.
