I'm handling registration fee payment. Here's the information:

METHOD OF PAYMENT (borrowed from Cody Voight)

All teams must pay by the day of the tournament. Since this is an online tournament, we will accept checks by mail ahead of time. Teams who do not pay by the day of the tournament will be charged a $25 penalty and will have two weeks to pay their total amount before we start mailing letters to your school administration about it.

We can accept cash, personal checks, or checks from school, school district, or quizbowl club funds. I will also accept Venmo or Paypal. Using other forms of payment outside those listed will be considered nonpayment and subject you to the $25 late payment penalty.

All checks must be made out to either "Sarita Jamil" or "Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania" (must be exact wording). If you bring a check not made out to either "Sarita Jamil" or "Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania" and have no other method of paying for the tournament, you will be subject to the $25 late payment penalty. If you require a pre-tournament invoice in order to have a check cut, let us know early enough for your school to process the payment. We can generally send you an invoice the same day.

Email us at pennquizbowl@gmail.com to discuss registration fee payment.

This was a lot of fun; I can see why people enjoy Skype quizbowl so much now. Thanks to Penn for staffing, and thanks to the Wang bros. for letting me (and Anderson) join the team.

I had a great time at this tournament. My thanks to Penn for hosting, and Anderson+Raynor for tagging along at the last minute. One small thing- unfortunately, I had to step out before the final game of the tournament. Can the stats be edited to reflect that?
