Minnesota Undergraduate Mirror (3/19/11) at Maryland

Post by DumbJaques » Wed Mar 02, 2011 12:00 am

The Maryland Academic Quiz Team is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a mirror of the pleasingly-consistent Minnesota Undergraduate Tournament on Saturday, March 19, 2011. Full details on the event can be found at http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... =8&t=10918. The highlights:

COST

Base Fee: $100
Buzzer System: -$5
Moderator: -$10

ELIGIBILITY

As you may have guessed, this tournament is for undergraduates! Any and all undergraduates are welcome to play, as are any current high schoolers (or middle schoolers, random unattended children of any age, pets not holding a bachelor's, etc.). Grad students are not eligible to play this tournament. If you have questions about this, email me.

REGISTRATION

I'll be serving as TD for this event. To register, please email me at volkov3000@yahoo.com. Feel free to post here as well, but please do email me to register officially.

SOMETHING ELSE

There was some discussion at Regionals this weekend about possibly combing this with a Sunday mirror of the Illinois Open, if available and if Penn isn't able to work out plans for their mirror. Thoughts on /interest expressions in this idea are extremely encouraged, so we can gauge viability if the event becomes available.

Jacob will be in Peru, but I'll be here, probably solo-ish.

Obviously, we will be there. IO on Sunday sounds good.

Obviously I'm not playing MUT but of all the heretofore inconvenient locations for IO (for me), this one is the least inconvenient. So yeah, I'd be interested if this actually happens.

Field Updated. I'm also eager to hear from a number of Mid-Atlantic teams (George Mason, GW, UNC, Duke, Penn, Princeton, etc.), since this is a great tournament for younger players to attend and, indeed, the only such tournament for several months.

Penn should be there with a team, no buzzers though.

It looks like Duke might not be able to attend the tournament due to a lack of definite commitments. I will keep you posted.

EDIT: It appears that Duke will not able to attend this tournament.

Could someone set up a private discussion forum for MUT feedback?
