The tournament will be hosted on the second floor of the McMaster University Student Center, where our mirrors for MOO and VCU Trash were held a couple of weeks ago.

Buzzer discount: -$10 per working buzzer
Moderator discount: -$10 per moderator
Travel discount: -$10 per 200 miles traveled

Registration:

Please indicate here (with #'s of buzzers/staff, if possible) or send us an email at [email protected] with the number of teams attending.

We hope to see you out on the 29th!

Count us in for one, possibly two. We can bring two buzzers.

So you guys know, Buffalo may have to back out of this. Our Student Association's Finance Dept. is giving us trouble, so we may not have the money to pay in any reasonable amount of time. I'll keep fighting, but things do not look very promising. Updates will be made public as we find out new details.

EDIT: We're back in! After much consternation, we were able to work out a loan (since all this is the bureaucracy's fault, not ours)

So it's looking like just me and Daniel P will be representing Waterloo. Any chance we could get some sort of shorthanded discount?

Ditto, as it looks like there's a good chance Case will only be able to show up with 2 guys.

I just told Arjun that I'd like to attend MAGNI, so I guess we're up to three people now? Not sure if this would nullify any potential discount...

For shorthanded teams/solo players, I don't mind charging a base fee of $25 per person.

As with MOO, we will be playing in on the second floor of the McMaster University Student Center. MUSC is the building number 51 on the following map, or email us if you need more directions: http://www.mcmaster.ca/welcome/campusmap.cfm . We will be starting play at 9:30, and look to finish for 7:00 PM at the latest, so please arrive for 9:00 or so.

As of right now, it looks like I'm flying solo, so I can either join a team or be a solo team to even out the numbers.

Our eligibility rules require that all teams competing at any site of MAGNI be composed entirely of players who attend one school in which they are all enrolled. This has required some players at previous sites to play solo; if you're the only one from your school here, it requires the same of you.

Steven: I am happy to take USD at par, so if getting Canadian dollars is at all an inconvenience, don't worry about it.

One team from each of the above schools showed up. A double round robin was played and the house team went undefeated to win.

Team Detail: McMaster wrote: Jordan, 86.25 ppg
Wait, Jordan Palmer is now at McMaster?!?! That would instantly make them one of the best (if not the best) Canadian team.
