HSNCT Side-event schedule

Post by The Billiards Fool » Mon May 22, 2017 11:13 pm

I've been trying to see when to schedule the Aux Cord set (if it happens), and the best way to do so seems to be to centralize a schedule. From what I can gather the planned side-events are as follows:

Friday:
945: PACENSC (pokemon)
10 PM-12: Geomonstrosity

Saturday:
Right after games end: Joao
730ish start time: Math Monstrosity
8: Humans v. QANTA Match
9 PM: Fight the Power
10 PM: Sam Brochin Packet 3

Sunday:
5 PM: ACRONYM (check in begins at 4)

Unknown/I couldn't discern the time:
Aux Cord — will be determined after everything else since interest is as of now a bit lower than most.
Sam Brochin Packet — TBD
These are all that I noticed. Let me know if I'm missing any or got any time slots wrong.

Math Monstrosity will not be starting at 6:30. We will be starting soon after competition Saturday has finished, so hopefully between 7:30 and 7:45.

Since João won't take longer than fifteen (15) minutes, I want to run it right after Saturday rounds so people have time to transition to other side events, etc.

I was planning to run PACENSC - our Pokémon side event - after scrimmages on Friday at around 9:45 or so, in which case I suppose it would coincide with Geography Monstrosity.

I'd love to fit a reading of Sam Brochin Packet 3 in there, if there's enough time/interest.

While not a true side event, Saturday night (8 PM according to the NAQT site) is going to see another humans vs. QANTA match.
