Noon Report
This will be my only report for the day, as preparations continue for the opening ceremonies tomorrow.

The weather forecast is not good for the festivities tomorrow, but the competition should kick off on schedule Sunday. There is a high overcast here today as most of the teams are training.

There will be no 16-way competition, as believe it or not, no teams registered! And almost as amazing, there are only three teams registered for 8-way: USA, Netherlands, and Russia. But despite that poor turnout, I expect great battles in both 4- and 8-way. There are also five teams entered in the 4-way feminine category, so that one should be good as well.

See you tomorrow!
