MLK at Maryland (February 13, 2016)

Postby Chandrapur Super Thermal Power Station » Thu Nov 12, 2015 1:31 pm

The University of Maryland will host a mirror of Michigan's MLK tournament on Saturday, February 13, 2016. The intended difficulty of this tournament is slightly below that of 2014 Penn Bowl; more information on the tournament can be found here. This is a closed collegiate event and eligibility guidelines for this tournament are the same as those for ACF events, except that teams composed of students all from the same high school are also permitted to play. I, Naveed Chowdhury, will direct this tournament.

Location and Time:
Games will take place in Jimenez Hall on the University of Maryland campus. The opening meeting will start promptly at 8.30; rounds will start immediately thereafter.

Fees and Payment:
$120 base fee
$15 discount for each capable moderator with working laptop
$10 buzzer discount (maximum 3)
$10 travel discount for every 150 miles between your school and the University of Maryland, as per Google Maps

The minimum fee is $50. Please bring payment on the day of the tournament in the form of cash or a check made out to the Maryland Academic Quiz Team. If we deem that your moderator is not capable or your buzzers are not working, you will not receive a discount.

Registration:
Please send me an e-mail at nch@umd.edu with the number of teams that you intend to bring and any buzzers or staffers that you will supply. If I do not respond within two days, feel free to send another e-mail.

Field (teams/buzzers/staffers):
Gettysburg (1/0/0)
Rutgers (1/0/0)
Virginia (1/4/0)
Princeton (1/1/0)
Penn State (1/2/0)
"St. Luke's" (1/0/0)

Hey, it's time to start thinking about rescheduling this, before anybody leaves on Friday night.

Naveed sent everyone an email yesterday about postponing this to Sunday. We're still waiting for confirmation.

Good to hear, but Sunday sounds dicey too.

Owing to severe inclement weather, the University of Maryland campus will be closed this weekend. Consequently, this tournament is postponed until next month. We will announce a new date soon.
