Announcement: Manu Ginobili Open

Post by AuguryMarch » Wed Aug 04, 2004 4:41 pm

Hey all-

Ezequiel wanted me to cross-post this tournament announcement (for the weird people that only read this group)

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to announce a pre-Nationals academic tournament (some
might even call it a
warm up) that will take place either at the University of Michigan or
at the University of
Chicago (the gears are turning, but this will be finalized fairly
soon, my hope is that people
who know they're interested in the tournament will email me and tell
me which site they
prefer) on March 12th, 2005 (Kelly's old Wildcat time).

The questions will be written by Leo Wolpert (science, various other
things) and myself
(everything else). Difficulty will be about Chicago Open 2004 level
and there will be a
minimum of 18 packets available of 20 and 20 questions, distribution
will be straight ACF,
but I will, by popular demand, include "power" or "super" tossups
(for now we will stick
with the latter name since the former is trademarked or something;
suffice it to say if you
get the question early you get to bask in the glory of extra points).

Who can come you ask? Anyone-- as long as they pay the measly fee of
80 bucks per team
(I am also amenable to making some monetary concessions for one or
two person teams
and those who have to travel a great deal to get to the midwest for
this exciting event, just
let me know in advance).

Ok, I think that is it. Any questions, comments, suggestions for
beating the Argentine
basketball team at the Olympics, should be sent to me at eberdich at
umich dot edu.
