Natsu Koshien qualifying update

I haven't posted anything in a while, mainly because I've been furiously trying to get all the published brackets put in excel. 11 prefectures alone published theirs yesterday - all of which I need to get in. Including such ones as Osaka and Kyoto.


And I've been trying to be ahead of all this.

In the meantime, Okinawa and Hokkaido have gotten a head start on everyone else.

I'll get an update on those done tomorrow. At a cursory glance though, nothing surprising.

One of my JHS kids from last year made it onto his HS tournament 20-man roster -- he's their only 1st-year as far as I can tell. I can't decide if I should go to their first game, which is kinda far out, or wait for their second, which is at Jingu. If they lose the first one I will totally regret it though...

But yeah, Tokyo and so on are starting their tournaments this weekend! Wheee.

I've got an idea of how I can help. But it involved dumping Excel in favor of OpenOffice (as OpenDocument is a far superior format for we programmers).

1. Download OpenOffice from

2. Create 3 sample brackets of varying sizes by hand in 3 different tabs (tab names are the regions) - please also clearly label where the scores go

3. E-mail me the ODS (OpenDocument Spreadsheet) file and I'll come up with an easier way of populating the bracket
