Change in strata: The Tuesday and Thursday games will now have the strata of A = unlimited, B = up to 800, and C = up to 240. This should result in fairly equal size strata on those days.

A = unlimited, B = up to 1500, and C = up to 200. (Note change to strata and relaxed upper limit of 10 team member points to encourage more participation.)
