PADAWAN at UChicago (10/11/14)

Post by ThisIsMyUsername » Thu Aug 21, 2014 12:06 pm

This is the general announcement for the Chicago site of PADAWAN, which will run on October 11th.

The tournament will be held at Harper Memorial Library, at 1116 East 59th Street. We will run additional rooms in Stuart Hall if we need to.

Details about the question set may be found here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... =8&t=16139

The base fee is $120
Discounts:
-$20 per 200 one-way driving miles (as measured by the shortest on Google Maps)
-$10 for each fully functional buzzer system
-$15 for providing a fully competent reader. These need to be cleared with me at least two weeks before the tournament. Staffers will be provided with lunch
The minimum fee per team is $60

If you cancel less than 72 hours before the tournament, you will be charged a cancellation fee of $40. This can be waived at my discretion, if the circumstances seem to merit it.

You must pay in full by check or cash at registration. I will not let you play this tournament until you've paid. So, if you arrive without payment in hand, you will be directed to an ATM to obtain payment.

While you're welcome to post in this thread to express interest, official registration happens only be e-mailing me. My e-mail is: johnyilawrence [AT] gmail.com. Please put the words "PADAWAN", "Chicago", and "Registration" in the subject-line of your e-mail. Because I'm receiving tons of e-mails that have these words independent of each other, sending me an e-mail with all three is the best way to insure that yours is not lost in the shuffle.

Relatedly, it's likely that I and possibly Bernadette will be coming along to staff.

That would be great, thanks. We could use the staffing help.

I'm closing the field for this on Saturday (10/4), so all currently unregistered schools that plan on attending should do so by then, and all currently registered schools should let me know their final number of teams by then too.

The field is officially closed at 16 teams. I'll be sending a logistical e-mail to a representative of each team, but the basic gist of it will be instructing you to be in Harper Memorial Library Room 140, between 8:15 and 9 AM on Saturday.

Prelim stats will be periodically uploaded here. The stats for "Cohomology" will lag behind by one round or so.
