After this tournament, this site will run an event based on difficult 3-5 line questions Maryland players have written for practice over the past year. The distribution will be roughly even with the normal distro, though the difficulty will range from "regular" to "basically impossible." This exciting side event will ONLY be run at the Maryland site, so hey, don't miss it.

To provide some more info on this: This will be five dollars for anyone who wants to play, but FREE to any outside staffers who moderate for this tournament. Some significant portion of the proceeds will go to Matt's Buzzers.

To clarify, games will start at 9, which means teams should be in Jimenez by 8:45 at the latest.

I don't know what other areas are expected to get large amounts of snow over the next few days, but is there any contingency plan in the event that the weather causes a substantial hardship for traveling teams?
