ACRONYM 13 @ Macalester (MN) - 2/23/20

Post by InvadErGII »

Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota will be hosting a mirror of ACRONYM 13 on Sunday, February 23, 2020. As with last year, the cost will be $20 per player. Macalester will have an online payment portal for this in the near future.

You can register a team and/or sign up as a staffer here.

This is the open mirror, right?

If so, I'm contemplating coming out for this and entering the free agent transfer portal.

It is! I wouldn't rule out there being others in the midwest at some point (as well as at HSNCT, etc.), but this one is in Minnesota, so yeah.

People should come to this, especially since I have replaced that awful Rob Carson.

Logistics info went out to the email addresses on the sign up sheet this morning, but in case people aren't passing that along:

Please come to Olin Rice Room 150 at 8:30 for check-in. There are parking lots to its immediate west and east, which are both good options. A map of the area is available here. Games will start as close as possible to 9am. The exact schedule will be finalized as we get closer to the tournament, but expect to play 5-6 games before a lunch break, followed by another 3-4 games in the afternoon.

So I thought I'd put my team on there weeks ago, but evidently not. Is the field closed or can we still get in?

Congrats to the ironically-named The Bus That Slowed Down (Mike Cheyne, Sam Ross, Carsten Gehring, Andrew Hart), who could not be stopped and defeated All Hail Krull, Sincerely Little Girl (Dan Burgess, Derek Sillerud, Susan Herder, Mike Olson) to clinch the MACRONYM title. Thanks to everyone who came! Stats are available below:
