The OP has been updated to reflect the fact that your first field cap of 16 has been reached. For now, all additional registrants will be placed on the waitlist. We are working to try to expand the field, but it would require more staff than we presently have confirmed. If you are interested in staf...

As of the present date, no teams have signed up for this tournament beyond a TBD number of UF house teams. However, we encourage teams to sign up as soon as possible, as the field for our SUN mirror ended up filling quite quickly.

1) Good catch. 2) To clarify: do the new to quiz bowl discounts stack? Trying to determine if the base price for a UNF team would be $50 or $60. Edit: reading this back I'm going to assume it's $60--stacking discounts within the "new to quizbowl" category would be needlessly confusing. I'm kind of ...

What are the procedures for applying for the waitlist? I don't see any instructions on the waitlist section of the A-value page, although I definitely could be missing something.

Re: META online

Based on the poll, it seems like most people would like to play this on July 13th. I’ve set up a spreadsheet where you can create your teams. The mirror fee will be $10 per player, and I’ll likely cap the field at 8 teams (unless there is more interest). https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1g6yc...

First off, I'd like to thank Zach for making this poll. It's a fantastic idea to generate some recognition for the efforts of players in a circuit that is to some extent geographically isolated from the rest of quizbowl for much of the year. I believe the way that Zach has designed the eligibility f...
