Erie Tournament 2013

I just received word from South Bend's ASA Major tournament director,  they have officially moved the 2013 ASA Major National to August 1-4, 2013.   This means Erie's Ed McCormick tournament will run July 26-28, 2013.  
For what it's worth,  the tournament director told me he also won the 2014 ASA in South Bend and plans to move the dates from August to the 3rd weekend of July.    (that's not a typo).   I have no idea why he (or ASA) is wanting to move Nationals to such an early date in July but this will disrupt a lot of ongoing tournaments if it comes to pass. 
I've got a few inquiries from teams about wanting to enter the Erie tournament in 2013.    Right now the plan is to drop from 10 teams back to 8.    You will remember, we only expanded the additional teams to accommodate the Argentine Jr. National team who had some schedule problems.   So, back to 8 teams in 2013 and a list of them will be announced shortly.
