Princeton is planning on sending 1 team and should have a packet in by the 23rd. Is there a field update?

Sorry for the delay. Stats from the prelims are here: http://www.princeton.edu/~cbowl/parfait2007/PARFAIT%20PRELIM_standings.html Stats for the playoffs still have some issues, but as I noted above, Maryland A came in 1st with a 3-way tie for second between VCU B, Rutgers NB A, and Brown. FSU was th...

PARFAIT has just ended. Thanks a lot to all the teams who came. Thanks in particular to Matt Wiener and the various players on Cornell and Columbia who played on various teams and helped fill out the bracket so there were no byes. Thanks also to all the Princeton moderators who came out and stayed u...

Let me stress again: please bring a buzzer if you have one, or more than one if possible. Is there a dearth of buzzers? I asked permission to come play on one of Delaware's teams, and can bring Charter's 3 buzzers. We are balancing on the edge as far as buzzers are concerned (I think we have 12 or ...

This is the informational email I sent out today, in case people didn't get it. PARFAIT will be held on Princeton's campus in the Frist Campus Center and in next-door Jones Hall. There is a campus map located here: http://www.princeton.edu/~pumap/ . The train station is labeled "Dinky Station" on th...

This is just a reminder to still email me if you have any interest in coming to PARFAIT on the 17th.

We'd like to have 24 teams, which is about what we have at the moment, but I imagine some teams are likely to drop, and so there's a good chance you can in fact come.

Okay, barring cancellations it looks as if we have 24 teams at the moment, and we're capping the field. If you'd still like to come, go ahead and email me and I'll let you know if someone cancels or something. And if you do want to cancel a team, please please let me know as soon as possible. Rutger...

23 teams at the moment. If you're a new team that hasn't registered yet, or an already registered team who wants to bring a new team, now is the time to tell me since I am planning on capping at 24. Also, if you want to cancel 1 or more of your teams, please let me know as early as possible. Field: ...

We can bring anywhere from 2-5 buzzers. Also, can we tentatively register a third team? I'm not sure if it will materialize or not, but it looks like we'll have at least more than 8 people coming. Yeah, you guys can certainly bring a 3rd team. We have 21 teams at the moment (including your 3); we'r...

Yeah, as Jordan noted we have acquired a few more rooms and are opening up the field for 3-4 more teams (to 24). As before, continue to email me if you are interested in coming. Also let me reiterate Jordan's reiteration on buzzers: please bring them if you have them, and please let me know how many...

And since I'm posting anyways, here's another field update: Rutgers Newark (1) The Citadel (1) Maryland (1-2) Rutgers New Brunswick (2) VCU (1) Swarthmore (2) William and Mary (2)...

Okay, it appears we have had our mirror in the Southeast fall through. If you are a team far enough away from Princeton, Berkeley, and Truman State (so as not to siphon off teams) and are willing to do some heavy question writing (or possibly pay us for the use of questions) we would love to have yo...

Mirrors

Just to get this out there--we are in discussions with three possible mirrors (who will each hopefully be contributing some packets): Truman State (i.e. Brainal Leakage), Berkeley, and South Florida.

The individual schools should have more info on this when/if they decide their logistics.

Again, travel discounts may be available to teams coming from a significant distance away. Can you clarify this a little? Brown will probably want to bring one team, and though this isn't the deciding factor for us, it would be nice to have this information. Sure. We are willing to give a discount ...

Fees

We have decided on the following fee structure, similar to last year's PARFAIT:

$120 base fee
$100 for 2nd team
$70 for 3rd team
$50 for 4th team

-$10 per buzzer system
$70 minimum per team

Again, travel discounts may be available to teams coming from a significant distance away.[/b]
