PIANO / Minnesota Open @ UMN, 3/30

Post by Muriel Axon » Tue Jan 01, 2019 9:14 pm

We are pleased to announce a mirror of PIANO / Minnesota Open on the Minneapolis campus of University of Minnesota on March 30, 2019. The exact building has yet to be determined, but it's likely to be Blegen Hall. PIANO is an open tournament, which means that anyone can register and teams can comprise players from multiple universities. This is a nationals-prep tournament, which means it will be tougher than ACF Regionals, but easier than ACF Nationals.

You can register by emailing kotha020 [at] umn.edu (cc: suacb [at] umn.edu) with the full roster of your team. A team formation spreadsheet is available here, but listing yourself there is not an official registration. (Note that this is the same as the 'interest' spreadsheet from earlier; remove yourself if you're no longer interested.

Fee schedule
Base fee: $120 per team
Buzzer: -$5/approved system
Staffer: -$15/approved staffer
Travel: -$10/200 miles one way
[this fee schedule is subject to revision as I consult with our team's board, but this is what it was for CMST last year]

We'll accept checks for "University of Minnesota Quizbowl Team" the day of the tournament, or mailed to arrive beforehand (PM for address).

Side events: we are still not 100% sure we will have side events, but we are currently planning to have them -- aiming to work this out ASAP!
