Liberty University wants to send two teams, but who do we make the registration check out to?

The Tardigrades team consists of players from UNC Wilmington who communicated to us that they haven't yet been confirmed as a registered organization with their university. We are not aware of any rule barring players from the same university competing in a tournament, even under a pseudonym, so we allowed them to register.

Neat. Huh. I didn't know that a) there were pseudonymous teams in college quizbowl, and b) that college administrations were that draconian. Good to see more schools playing quizbowl.

Very cool to see a UNC-W team up and running! And to see so many teams from Chapel Hill.

Any updates on parking and a building location with a room number?

We will be driving a minibus that is too tall for a parking garage.

If you are driving a minibus we recommend parking behind Mann Hall, which can be seen on this map: http://www2.acs.ncsu.edu/trans/maps/map-parking.pdf

The tournament will be held in Daniels Hall and the central meeting room will be 218. Registered teams will be receiving an email from us shortly with more information.
