It's not really crucial that we don't have 32 people. Really we can start with 31 and someone lucky will get a bye to the next round.
The main reason we are not starting now is that I'm too busy. I think nearing the end of this coming week my workload will decrease.
Also, I'm not yet sure if I'm going to completely randomize it, or let people play people closer to them. Obviously, B.C vs Toronto might have some lag.
Only problem with closer matches is that eventually someone in Toronto is going to have to face someone from B.c when there are no people left. So I might just randomize it and tell people to play through the lag. We shall see.
