Michigan Fall Mirror at WKU (October 12, 2013)

Post by Rococo A Go Go »

The WKU Academic Competition Club will be hosting a mirror of the Michigan Fall Tournament on October 12, 2013 in Bowling Green, KY. The set we are mirroring is considered to be "regular minus" or "fall plus" in difficulty, similar to past iterations of the Early Fall Tournament. As such, it should be appropriate early season tournament for even new or inexperienced teams. Teams may submit packets to [email protected] for a discount, although packet submission is not required.

Fee Structure
Base Fee: $100 per team
Moderator discount: $10 (max: 2)
Buzzer discount: $10 (max: 2)
Travel discount: $10 per 200 miles traveled, one-way, as determined by Google Maps or Mapquest
Packet by Sunday, August 4th: -$50
Packet by Sunday, September 1st: -$25

Moderator discounts are only provided for competent moderators who can read a 20/20 round of pyramidal questions in 35 minutes or less and buzzer discounts are only provided for working buzzer systems that can actually be used during the tournament.

In line with the standards set forth in the main tournament thread, we will allow any teams comprised of players playing for a single school/college to compete. This includes graduate students and high schoolers. For the moment, the field is capped at 18 teams, although this may be raised depending on availability of staff.

We've yet to hear from some of the usual suspects (Louisville, Centre, Alabama, etc.) but I'm sure some of you guys are interested.

Field Update

Alabama (2 teams)
Centre (2 teams)
Kentucky (2 teams)
Louisville (2 teams)
Vanderbilt (2 teams)

I'm actually limiting the field to 12 teams based on staff availability. If teams are bringing moderators we may be able to expand a little.

Congratulations to Louisville A for winning WKU's mirror of the Michigan Fall Tournament, they defeated Centre in a one game final after both teams finished 9-1. Thanks to all of the teams for coming, and thank you to all of the people who helped staff this tournament and make it a success. Full stats can be found here.
