MLK Mirror @ UCF (Jan 16, 2016)

Postby sonstige » Thu Nov 12, 2015 10:52 pm

The University of Central Florida plans to host a mirror of Michigan's MLK tournament on Saturday, January 16, 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.

Any 4-year school and community college teams are welcome to attend.

Location and Time:

Games will take place on UCF's main campus ---- in the UCF student union.

Teams should plan to arrive between 9:00-9:300 AM the day of the tournament, with an expected start time of 9:45 AM. For rounds, I'll plan to use ACF's recommended tournament structure based on the number of teams in attendance (10 round minimum).

NOTE: Parking at UCF can be tricky, so please plan accordingly. Free parking is available in Parking Garage F (see the campus map here).

Fees and Payment:

$100 base fee

$10 discount for each capable moderator with working laptop
$10 buzzer discount
$10 travel discount for every 125 miles traveled one way (driving distance per Google maps; or, per airfare itinerary for anyone who might fly to sunny Orlando for this)

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 me (Travis Vitello).

I'll print receipts the day of the tournament.

Registration:

Please send me an e-mail at tvitello AT knights.ucf.edu with the # of teams, staffers, and buzzers you plan to bring and/or post in this thread.

A logistics e-mail will be sent out to the registered teams as the tournament approaches.

Field:

UCF - 2 teams
UF - 4 teams
New College - 2 teams

I'm going to say the cap for this is 9 teams, which I don't think will be an issue. As said in the original post, I'll update once rooms are reserved but we're targeting the student union for this.

So an update (finally!): after some delay on the UCF admin side, we got things resolved room-wise. We'll be at the UCF student union. Plan to be there between 9:00-9:30 AM. My original post will be updated accordingly.

Note that free parking is available in Garage F (note, however, that there is a home basketball game later that day --- I'm not positive if that'll affect parking in F, but be cautious in case it does; if so, there may be paid parking available elsewhere on campus).

We had 8 teams come out (4 UF, 2 New College, and 2 UCF house teams).

Final results are found here.

Thanks to everyone who came out, and especially to our staffers (Harlea, Sean, Ian, and Virginia)!
