All of the draws have been updated to reflect the new match times for tomorrow morning. Please pay particular attention to your match times. If you have any overlaps or close match times, you will play them in the order that they are scheduled with rest time allowed. These are NOT BEFORE times, like the Pros. What that means is when we have delays, we do our best at approximating times.

JPii HS matches have been pushed back approx an hour in most cases with some exceptions. See Draws.
