Conclusion

I have attempted to give a brief recap of this event and the statistics came from the game scoresheets.  I apologize for any misspelled names or errors in stats as I hurriedly transcribed the statistics from the scoresheets.  This report is meant to be an overview of the tourney and not an instrument for ascertaining official statistics.
