2019 PIANO/Minnesota Open at OSU (3/24/2019 - SUNDAY)

Post by DumbJaques » Fri Feb 08, 2019 12:30 pm

After a protracted scheduling nightmare, OSU is pleased to announce a mirror of PIANO/Minnesota Open, which will take place on Sunday, March 24, 2019. This is an OPEN tournament, and will feature at least 3 of the top-10 ranked teams in the country, so we expect to draw a very solid field.

Location:
The tournament will take place at Enarson Classroom Building (specific meeting room TBA).

Entry Fees and Discounts:
Base Fee: $120 per team
Buzzers: -$5 per each working buzzer system
Staffing: -$15 per approved staffer
Travel Discount: -$15 per 200 miles traveled

Payment must be made on the day of the tournament either by cash or check only. Please make checks out to "The Academic Team at the Ohio State University."

Question Set:
Information on the set can be found here: http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=21685


Transportation and Parking: The best place to park on campus is almost certainly either the Tuttle Park Garage (2050 Tuttle Park Place), or the football stadium lot across the street. Note that these locations are paid parking, even on Saturdays (though the rates should not exceed ~$12 for the day). A backup option is the Lane Avenue Garage (2105 Neil Ave). There is free street parking around campus, but this is far from guaranteed on Saturday mornings, and I *strongly* discourage you from attempting to find it unless you know the area quite well.

Registration:

Just drawing attention to the fact that Columbia A is indeed flying to this because it's the only PIANO date that our whole team can play, and if MSU and Chicago can be roped in there's suddenly a crazy strong pre-nats field, so I'm gonna need you all to FREE YOUR MINDS about a Sunday event and sign up!

We actually couldn't even attend this on Saturday given our ILLIAC mirror. So this works out better for Illinois.
