You will probably see at least 1 team from Buffalo on this date, but this is over our Spring Break. We probably could bring 2-3 teams if this was another weekend.

Unless something else comes up, put me down for moderating this event.

I'm pretty sure we're coming to this with a number of teams greater than zero and less than four.

Any update on the fee structure? I need to put in requests to finance soon, and to do that I need a price. We'll only be bringing one team from Buffalo, with 1-2 buzzers.

Just a note about eligibility that we finally put up on the main site:
Cheynem wrote: This tournament is for undergraduates. You can be any year in playing as an undergraduate as long as you are in a typical degree-earning program. By undergraduate, I am defining as "have not earned a bachelor's degree" or the equivalent of such (i.e., you can have played five years of college quizbowl and still be an undergraduate).

You can play if you are a high schooler.

You cannot play if you are not in school at all. If you graduated like in the fall, you can play--that's cool.

You cannot play on an open team. You must play for your college or educational institution (obviously if you need to "go rogue" as a high schooler that's okay). We are aware that occasionally field sizes may require some flexibility here--please contact us if this is something that needs resolved.

You cannot play if you are a graduate student. I am aware that there are occasional gray areas here, so I would urge all TD's to run any potential "question mark" eligibility cases with the MUT editors. If we determine there is a bad faith example of eligibility gaps being broken, we will not be amused.

I will be coming to this as a moderator. I will check with U of T tonight to see whether or not we will be fielding any teams.

Can we get a field update? We are probably just bringing one team.

Apologies for the delay; the first post has been updated with the current field, along with fee, time, and location info.

Please confirm any discounts you intend to claim either here, or by emailing Jj Li at the address in the first post.

We currently have five people going. I think we would like to split into two teams, but if that does not work well with the schedule then we can keep it at one team.

Hey, can we get confirmation that you have us registered and got the E-mail I sent you yesterday? Also, can you take payment in checks in American money from American banks?

I don't know about any rules that your school may have about payment methods, but if you bring cash then I would be happy to exchange it for Canadian money, which I will bring to the site. I could use the American dollars for ICT.

This tournament was fun, despite issues relating to us not being the same school as Michigan.

I also liked the questions - the only ones that I had issue with were the physics, and everything else was some of the best we've played this year.

Hey, I send you an E-mail about this a few days ago, but can someone please send me an invoice for Michigan State for this tournament? I paid $210 for our two teams, I think.

Could I also get a receipt for McMaster? We had one team of two people plus a moderator.

Hey: I hope you guys are sending out these receipts because you still haven't paid us yet or responded to e-mails about payment.
