Here's some more information based on e-mails I've received:
I would like all players to be at the event by 9:00 if at all possible. I of all people understand being late sometimes and the event may have some limited ability for me to engineer around that, but being late can't help your chances.
We're looking to end by 2:00. At this point, I think it's likely to be earlier – the loss of some enrollees due to the snow makes this difficult to predict, but fewer people tends to make a shorter event, of course.
In line with the above, I'm strongly considering adding a second tryout event to accommodate those prevented by weather from attending, hopefully on a day that isn't beset by a foot of snow. Stay tuned for more information on that. I can say for certain at this point that I will not be ready to announce teams Sunday.
In line with pretty much all quizbowl events ever, I'm not housing players overnight. I've heard that the Illini Union is full, in which case I suggest this nice, campus-walkable hotel
if you/your child need/s a place to stay. Please contact me right
away if this leaves you in some kind of emergency situation.
