Culver Academies will host the Sixth Annual Midwest Championship on Saturday, April 14, 2012 (we moved away from the AP's to avoid conflicts). Culver is located in North Central Indiana, about fifty miles South of South Bend, and about 100 miles Southeast of Chicago.
This tournament is meant as a warm-up for Nationals-bound teams and an opportunity for good teams who can't make Nationals to compete at a similar level. This question is scheduled to use the Division II SCT set. Teams will be guaranteed a minimum of eight games.
We are aiming for a field size of twelve to twenty-four teams. In various years our field has included DCC (MI), DCDS (MI), Dorman (SC), Seven Lakes (TX), New Trier (IL), Loyola (IL), Rockford-Auburn (IL), Dunbar (KY), Manual (KY), Northmont (OH), and Culver (IN), among others.
The fee structure will tentatively be as follows (subject to change):
Registration fee: $70 per team,
Working buzzer system: -$10
Long drive discount: -$10 (>150 miles)
Really long drive/flight discount: -$20 (>300 miles)
We have housing available in our campus motel for $20/two person room. Our dining hall serves AYCE meals at a reasonable rate: $4/$5/$6 for breakfast/lunch/dinner.
Please register or express interest by e-mail ASAP, but certainly before March 14, 2011: blessmp [at] culver [dot] org
We are looking for moderators for this tournament. We pay $5 per game plus lunch and housing Friday night (if necessary).
Let me know if you have any questions!
