"stanford housewrite" on Skype (March 12, 2016)

Post by Galadedrid Damodred » Sun Dec 06, 2015 3:10 am

The Skype mirror of "stanford housewrite" will take place on March 12, 2016. Refer to this thread for information about the set. As of February 29, there will not be a Northeast mirror, so people in that region who are not attending the Maryland site and want to play should sign up for the Skype mirror. You can use this thread to form teams. Register by emailing me, Austin Brownlow (acb13 AT stanford DOT edu). The cost is $120 per team.

Despite our best efforts, there is still no Northeast site for this tournament. Therefore, teams in that region should either arrange a physical mirror in the next week or sign up for the Skype mirror. We can move the date if that will work better for more teams, so when you sign up, please let me know which weekends in March you'll be available. Same goes for teams in other regions that are not able to attend a physical mirror.

A McGill team is highly interested in this. Can we pay you in person at ICT or Nats?

I would love to play but would prefer the subsequent weekend (3/12) if that would work for others as well.

Yes, that's fine. We'd prefer that American teams send checks by mail, but if that is too much of a headache then we're open to being paid at ICT instead.

We'll almost certainly be able to hold the tournament on whichever weekend in March is the best fit for everyone. Other people and teams should also tell me their preferences when they express interest.

I would be interested in playing on an open team for this, should one form. That said, if it is held on March 5th, I couldn't play either; I'll be staffing NAQT KY State.

Hey, if this is going to happen on March 12 then we need at least 4 teams to register this week. There's still no sign of a Northeast mirror materializing, so figure out what you're doing, people!

This tournament is cancelled due to lack of interest. Sorry.
