I talked with Rob today; although the posted day of the contest (Saturday, Nov 1st) is booked, Sunday the 2nd can be had from 2-10pm.
Pros: Weather-proof tournament. No park district/ police interference possible. Booze/kitchen on sight. Scoreboard. Tournament not the day after hangoverween.
Cons: One court for a limited time, so no/few friendly games. Cost. 400 for 8 hours plus food and drink. Late Sunday tourney means players pretty much have to take Monday off work. I look like an idiot for moving the date twice.
What say you all? We should figure this out fast-like.
