Re: TERP Mirror at McMaster October 30th

We'd like to ask that all teams that are planning on coming send us an email indicating whether they'd be able to bring a buzzer system or not.

We would like to have teams bring buzzers, and any moderators would be helpful.

Re: TERP Mirror at McMaster October 30th

Hey everyone,

We'll get started at 9 as per usual.

The tournament is also taking place at the Michael G. DeGroote Center for Learning and Discovery ( MDCL ). Its the building where the two previous Jeff Goldblums have been held.

Yup, as its only 3 days away, there will be no fee or anything like that.

However, if you would like to bring non-perishable food items, that would be welcomed. A member of the Mac Quizbowl team will bring it to a local food bank.
