For the foreseeable future (and with almost absolute certainty, due to a lack of other venues), YMIR will be in the official PACE hotel (the Sheraton Plaza). I will post more details later when I know them, but plan for it to happen about 45 minutes after the last Saturday round ends, including the time taken to get to the hotel. I will be buying pizza for players and staffers, so dinner should be covered.

Am interested in participating should there be a spot available.

In case it wasn't clear or whatever, be sure to show up in the lobby of the Sheraton Clayton Plaza by 7 PM. The fee is $7, which will go towards buying pizza, to be eaten after the tournament ends. (or during, whichever is more preferable).

I can take last minute registrations and add those people on existing shorthanded teams and/or form a new team (there are 7 officially registered as of now), but I'd really like to stick with the 8-team schedule (especially since there's a shortage of rooms).

I seem to have disappeared from the interested persons list and am not listed on the registered teams area. If at all possible I'd like to play this set as a member of a team that desperately needs someone to sit quietly at a buzzer for the entirety of the tournament.

Sorry about that, I couldn't really find a way to contact you.

I will probably end up playing this tournament and it would actually be better if I could just be tossed on a team that still has space, since I might leave in the middle of the tournament. Sorry for the late notice.

Congratulations to Matt Jackson and Richard Yu, who went undefeated in this tournament, beating the VWV team of Nolan Winkler, Morgan Venkus, and Sohan Vartak in the finals. Matt Jackson was also the highest scorer in the first 7 rounds.

I will get final stats up once I get the last 3 scoresheets from Nikhil's room; in the meantime, here are some stats missing those three games: http://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/1001

I hope everyone enjoyed playing this tournament; if you have any comments about this set, please email ben.zhng1@gmail.com. Also, please don't discuss the questions publicly, as I'm probably going to run this at NASAT and possibly at KABO too.
Edit: I entered the scoresheets.

If you email me at ben.zhng1@gmail.com, I can send it to you. The same applies for everyone else who has played it set or is not planning to play it.

I know it's a bit late, but please let me know if you would be interested in playing YMIR at NASAT sometime.
