BARGE Mirror at Yale (01/14/12)

Post by ThisIsMyUsername » Mon Nov 28, 2011 9:18 pm

I'm pleased to announce Yale's mirror of BARGE. It will be held in William L. Harkness Hall. Registration will start at 8:30 with the first rounds starting by 9:15.

Details about the tournament (target difficulty, distribution, etc.) may be found here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... =8&t=12060. Open teams are welcome.

Chris Ray has agreed that due to the late announcement of this site, packet submission will not be necessary. So, fees will be as follows:

Base fee: $120
Working buzzer: -$5
Competent moderator: -$10
Travelling over 200 miles to get to us: -$10

Field Update:
Aaron Cohen + Yetman + Nolan Esser + Ryan Rosenberg (1)
Yale House (2)
Hunter HS (1)
Columbia (1)
MIT (1)
Princeton (1)
Dartmouth (1)

Assuming that mixed teams are still allowed I will be teaming with Doug Yetman for this event and possibly some of my RPI teammates.

I will try to get some NYU people interested in this, but if there is insufficient interest, I would be interested in coming in to help as a moderator.

Just to echo the reminders going up in the other BARGE e-mail chains: no packet is required for our site, and as you can see, the field will be an eclectic mix. Come join us. I know that some schools will be on break. If you can't scrape together a full team and want to come as a free agent, let me know. We'll find a way to make it work.

I'm trying to see if any of my RPI teammates will join Doug and I for this. If not, we would be glad to take on some free agents for this.

Unfortunately, Saint Joe's will not be able to make it due to transportation issues, but we do wish you good luck with your tournament.

Is it too late for a tentative Dartmouth team to sign up? Either we'll be there legitimately with college funding or we'll be paying out of pocket but bringing a moderator. We'd have buzzers either way.

Not too late. Come on down.

Could the tentatives please get back to me soon and let me know what the situation is?

Consider this official notification, though I can send an email as well if you wish.

Looks like Hunter will be there with only 1 buzzer - I think we've lost the other set.

We'll still have one moderator.

With eight teams, a prelim round-robin was followed by splitting into top and bottom brackets of four. House A team cleared the field (10-0).
