These were my concerns because we are not looking at trying to break
any all time conference attendance records. I just wouldn't want us
to go over capacity with people there for the secondary track and then
people there for the main track would be left out.

I am not saying they wouldn't leave the games, what I am saying is
that when you are about ready to win a match all your opponents could

deal for someone, but I know I would get frustrated if this happened
multiple times to myself.
