So will it be double elim?

Single elim, but there will be a consolation round for anyone eliminated in the first. (So basically, unless you get a bye, everyone will have at least 2 matches).







Ok, this may sound like a stupid question. Will there be showers? 'Cause i have my in-law's 25th anniversery party right after.

There's at least 1 shower in the men's changing room.
