WUSTL Mirror of 2016 NASAT-June 25, 2016

Post by 1992 in spaceflight » Mon May 23, 2016 1:16 pm

Hello all,

I'm pleased to announce that I will be directing WUSTL's mirror of the 2016 NASAT set. The tournament will take place on June 25, 2016.

Teams are completely open. In order to register your team, you will need to email me at jacob.orourke.7 [at] gmail.com with your teammates, buzzer and staff information. A team formation spreadsheet can be found here for the WUSTL site. The tournament will take place in Siegle Hall (building #97).

Fees
Base Fee: $80 per team
Discount: -$5 per buzzer system; -$20 for a moderator.
The Minimum fee is $40 to pay the mirror fee.
If you're bringing a check, it should be made out to "Washington University Academic Team." Cash is also good.

Field
WUSTL et al (2 Buzzers, No Moderator) [Charles Hang, Tirth Patel, Victoria Cui, Gordon Aresnoff]
Teamy McTeamface [David Dennis, Kyle Hill, Allyson Lotz, Matt Chadbourne]
Dat Suitable Boi [Dylan Minarik, Kai Smith, Morgan Venkus, Mike Etzkorn]
Missouri Open Squad [Will Alston, Itamar Naveh-Benjamin, James Lasker, Athena Kern]
The Short Happy Life of Brad's Coaching Career [Brad Fischer, Alec Krueger, Kristin Strey, Tyler Vaughan]

Hope to see everyone in St. Louis on June 25th!

Because I forgot that my brother's graduation party is the same day, Sean Phillips is going to take over directing St. Louis Open's academic event. I'll still take registrations and forward them on to him.

What's the status of all the tentative people in this thread? My tentative plans for a team fell through, so I'm still looking for folks to team up with.

Edit - Didn't realize there was a spreadsheet, despite my name being on it.

Yeah, I don't really care if people want to play as pseudonyms in an open, but you should not allow them to use the names of other quizbowlers.

As to the why, I have no idea. I've sent an email to the contact for this team asking for a different pseudonym idea.

Dear All,

So it looks like we have six teams registered at present for the NASAT mirror on Saturday. Please communicate to your teammates to be in Seigle Hall, Room L006 starting at 8am with an eye to starting rounds by 8:30. Seigle Hall is building 97 on this map:

https://wustl.edu/wp-content/uploads/20 ... rthmap.pdf

Please park in the marked yellow zones or at a meter. Weekend parking is free.

We will do a double round robin (with lunch in between round robins) with any finals if necessary after that. Please continue to use the google spreadsheet to make any roster changes but as of 12:01 am Friday I will not allow any new teams to register unless necessary. PM me if you need my phone number.

See you in Seigle Hall on Saturday!

Stats from the NASAT Mirror can be found here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournament ... all_games/. Dylan Minarik's team defeated the Missouri Open team to win the tournament.

Much thanks to Sean Phillips for directing this for me after work obligations forced me to drop from directing the tournament!

What happened to my first 6 games? I'm assuming it has something to do with the fact there were two Mike Etzkorn's in the system and one was deleted, but my stats seemed to be fine on the WUSTL website.

This day was a lot of fun. I want to thank the teams for their great spirit and attitude all day. I'd also like to thank the staff Kevin Stockman, Abby Kuchnir, Marshall Mullins and Peter Kahn. It was a pleasure to work with each and every one of you today and you were all such top notch pros! I hope to see you all at WUAT events for years to come!

A huge thanks to Sean and WUStL for running a fantastic tournament!

I have recordings of the final two matches between Dat Suitable Boi and Missouri Open Squad - once the set is clear I will post them.

SQBS wasn't showing that you had games played in rounds 1-6. This should be fixed now.
