Hello, everyone! I am pleased to announce that MIT will be hosting the Northeast mirror of MUT on Sunday, May 1, 2016. More information about the set can be found in the main announcement here.

FEES: +$120: each team
-$5: each buzzer set provided. In order to receive this discount, the buzzer system must be fully functional.
-$15: each volunteer staffer provided.
-$10: for teams traveling in excess of 200 miles one-way, as determined by the distance Google Maps provides between MIT and your school.

PAYMENT: Teams may pay either in advance or on the day of the tournament. Either cash or check is acceptable; please make checks out to "MIT Quiz Bowl Team." If you require an invoice or other paperwork prior to payment, please let us know as soon as possible.

REGISTRATION: The initial cap is 8 teams, but this cap may increase depending on staff availability. Because of our low team cap, I will put all teams beyond the first for a single school on the wait list to accommodate more schools. In order to register for this tournament, please email ALL of the following information to me at oliveren [AT] mit [DOT] edu:
1. School name
2. Number of teams you are registering [note that for the first week, any team beyond the first will be automatically placed on the wait list]
3. Cell phone number at which you can be reached on the day of the tournament.
4. The number of buzzers and staffers you are intending to bring.

Although expressions of interest in this forum are appreciated, the only official means of registration is by emailing the above information to me. Registering teams should receive an email of confirmation within a day.

Please feel free to contact me at oliveren [AT] mit [DOT] edu if you have any questions or concerns about the tournament.

Since we are almost a week away from the tournament, and since it has been a week from the original tournament announcement, I have removed the team cap per school.
