I, Charles Hang, will be Tournament Director. To register, or if you have any questions, please email our team at email@example.com.
High schoolers are exempt from the usual requirement that players and teams play under their actual personal and team names. High schoolers are also welcome to form open teams, contingent on my approval.The original tournament announcement wrote:Only undergraduate and high school students can play this tournament. "Undergraduate" in this case does not follow the traditional ACF definition--fifth-year (or greater) undergraduates with no bachelor's-level degree are still eligible to play.
Less-experienced grad students (i.e. grad students who have not played a tournament before this school year, with slight exceptions granted at our discretion) can request permission directly from us to play the set (by contacting [Young Fenimore Lee] at firstname.lastname@example.org), and if granted will be able to play at a mirror. Otherwise, they will not be allowed to play.
Tournament check-in will begin at 8:30 AM, morning announcements will be at 8:50, and play will begin at 9:00.
The tournament will probably take place in Eads Hall (Building 31 here). Due to construction on our campus, we advise that you park at the Simon Lot here.
