Bidwell Bash Invitational 68 Topic

This will be the 2nd season for the Bidwell Bash Invitational (named after General John Bidwell, the founder of Chico, CA, and Chico State University (also known as CSU, Chico). The tournament will be a 6-team round robin that will be played in weeks 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 of the non conference schedule. CSU, Chico is the tournament's host. In future seasons, the defending champ from the previous year will get an automatic bid to the next tournament (to be clear, this will be on a 1 season delay, so the season 67 winner will get an automatic bid to the season 69 tourney, as the season 68 tourney will already be scheduled by the time the season 67 tourney is played). The remaining 4 teams in the field is invitation only based on alblack's dynasty rankings (since he doesn't have a team in the Allen world, he doesn't do dynasty rankings here, but I have his formula and will be keeping and publishing the list).

I'm extending invitations to Glenville St. and Seattle.  Haven't heard back from Wayne St. (MI) or American International yet and I'd like to get the field filled up before recruiting starts today.

Seattle accepts.

Glad to have you and Seattle in the field t22u.

Wayne St. MI declined, so we are waiting to hear from Glenville St.  I've offered Glenville St. and Fairmont St. both the last spot, first come first serve.  With recruiting about to start we need to get that last spot filled.  I've also let Adams St. know not to start scheduling when recruting starts if they want in on the Bidwell Bash.
