Terrapin Mirror @ MSU, March 23, 2013

Post by Muriel Axon » Wed Nov 28, 2012 8:18 pm

Michigan State University plans to hold a mirror of Maryland's Terrapin set on either March 23, 2013. This is a more or less regular difficulty set. Official tournament announcement: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... =8&t=13786

The following (until "registration") is copied and pasted from the announcement.

Our packet submission requirements are the same as that of ACF: "Any team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament (either as a college student or as a high school student) prior to September 1, 2011 is required to submit a packet in order to participate".

PRICING:

+$100 - Base Fee
-$50 - Packet submitted by Saturday, February 2.
-$25 - Packet submitted by Saturday, February 9.
+$0 - Packet submitted by Saturday, February 16.
+$25 - Packet submitted by Saturday, February 23.
+$50 - Packet submitted by Saturday, March 2.
+$100 - Packet submitted after that, with an additional $10/day

+$10 - For egregiously bad formatting; teams should stick as closely to the ACF formatting as possible: http://acf-quizbowl.com/documents/2012- ... formatting
-$5 - Working buzzer discount, unlimited
-$10 - Competent moderator discount

Minimum fee per team: $40.

PACKET GUIDELINES:

Standard ACF distribution and question length, see: http://acf-quizbowl.com/documents/2012- ... stribution and http://acf-quizbowl.com/documents/2012- ... es/#length

REGISTRATION:

If you're interested, email msucbowl (at) gmail.com.

Database entry: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/1227/

LOGISTICS:

The tournament will be held at 619 Red Cedar Rd. (Wells Hall), MSU, East Lansing, 48824. It will be in the first floor of the A wing, which is the wing farthest to the north (toward the river). Registration will take place at A106. I'll be there signing in teams starting around 8:00 am, and the tournament will begin around 9:00 am. There are places to get lunch close enough to walk.

FIELD:

St. Joseph High School
Michigan (probably 2)
Laferbrook + Teevens
Illinois NASAT
Chicago (2)
Team Canada
Notre Dame
OSU (3)

A team (or more unlikely, teams) from Canada can most likely come-what are the eligibility rules?

OSU would prefer the later date, as the 16th falls within our spring break.

The same as the main site, whatever those are. I know that open teams are not allowed, but nothing beyond that.

Also, seeing as the main site appears to have been postponed a week, I think we'll be doing the 23rd.

Arun has informed me that they intend to stand by the typical closed tournament eligibility rules, including no mixed high school teams.

Everybody who has talked to me has supported the 23rd date, so I'm leaning pretty strongly toward that (as well as for the reasons Joe mentioned). If anyone has any strong objections, you'd be best advised to voice them now.

I've updated the field. As I wrote above, the field currently consists of St. Joseph High School as well as an undefined number of Michigan teams (at least one). We're waiting for information from Brian McPeak of Maryland about the possibility that our site (and maybe others) may allow teams that would normally have to write a packet to play without doing so, under certain conditions (possibly involving additional fees), kinda like some WIT sites. Other than Michigan A, we don't know which Midwest teams have submitted packets.

Ottawa has also expressed some interest, and from Jarret's post earlier in the thread, I suspect OSU might be interested, too, but I'm not sure about that.

I think it's worth mentioning that Michigan's NASAT team would also love to play this if the people at Maryland would allow it.

I can confirm Ottawa's hope to play; if packet submission is not required, it's possible a McMaster and even a UToronto team could come...

I e-mailed Brian to see if he would consider allowing open teams, or just open high school teams, for our site. Should Maryland refuse, we would still be delighted to see DCC, DCDS, and various Illinois high school teams play.

As far as I can understand, Maryland is still evaluating the possibilities for loosening eligibility requirements. I asked them to make a decision by Friday afternoon. As lovely as it would be to have St. Joseph and Michigan A play each other for twelve straight rounds, I plan to cancel the tournament if no more teams sign up in the next few days.

Teams that were supposed to send a packet but didn't are now allowed to play for a $50 additional fee. We are also allowing open teams, though we strongly prefer that people who are enrolled in college play with other people at the same college.

If you're interested, please sign up as soon as possible. If we're below, say, six teams by next Tuesday at 10:00 pm, we may still have to cancel.

I am sending you an e-mail, but will also post here that a "Team Canada" (Dennis Beeby and Jordan Palmer, uOttawa, Brendan McKendy, Algonquin College, and Jay Misuk, McMaster University) is registering. We have one buzzer set and laptops, if you need them. :-)

We'll have an answer to how many teams we are bringing by Wednesday, but it will most likely be in the 2-3 range.

I'll try to get back to you as soon as possible; currently we have enough interest for 2-3 teams, but we need to figure out transportation first.

Hey, I'm sure everyone is enjoying the set, but remember that it won't be clear for some time now. Can we have a private discussion forum for it so people can tell us exactly how much they enjoyed it?

Michigan (11-0) and Chicago A (10-1) are playing the first game of an advantaged final. Laferbrook & friends finished 3rd (9-2).
