Rube Goldberg VIII at Michigan State (02/12/11)

Post by xanana.chomsky » Mon Dec 06, 2010 8:55 pm

Michigan State University’s Academic Competition Club is proud to announce its eighth annual Rube Goldberg Invitational, scheduled for February 12, 2011.

This tournament will be using NAQT invitational set IS-102 and will follow untimed NAQT rules. It will consist of a divisional round robin, followed by a re-bracketed round robin for playoffs, and each team can expect to play approximately 10 games. The field cap has yet to be determined and will be based on the number of staffers we have available. Teams should plan on arriving by 8:45 that morning, as we want to start matches by 9:00.

Tournament Fees:
First Team: $70
Subsequent teams: $60
Working Buzzer set: -$10 per functional set
Distance Discount: -$10 per 100 miles (1-way), by Google Maps
Minimum per team: $30

Please make checks payable to MSU Academic Competition Club and please pay upon arrival, or in advance. Please email us at cbowl AT msu DOT edu to register (even if you post on the forum, a registration email is requested), or if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Chris Heffner
Veep, MSU Academic Competition Club

If you weren't aware of this already, I'll of course be there to help staff.

In case it wasn't already obvious, I'll help staff.

Also, it's barely a month away!

I know that I can't go, but I don't think the rest of the team knows for sure whether they'll go or not.

We have 36 teams, which means we're full up. Sorry, DCDS. Any other teams that would like to register can be put on the wait list.

As far as results go:

1) DCC A
2) Novi A
3) DCC B

I assume full results and stats will be forthcoming.

Last time I checked, stats were over 95% complete, and the only unaccounted for score-sheet had been recovered, so stat posting is imminent.

I'd like to thank Chris Heffner for running this whole thing successfully. Everyone got to play 10 rounds of quizbowl, and get out the door by 5 PM, despite a delay for no-shows and extra long lunch break.

Whoever put up the stats messed up.
Huron(New Boston) was put in the Noon Witch bracket and Ionia A was put in the Golden Spinning Wheel.
this was supposed to be the opposite because i go to carson and we played huron but not Ionia A
thanks :kenj:
