I think April 1 would be good depending on the status of this tournament. We are definitely interested in attending though our final exams are during the first week in May so that April 29 date is probably not doable.

April 1 is slightly preferable, but any of those dates should work for CMU (assuming we have enough money left over after ICT travel). Our finals don't start until 5/8 so 4/29 is definitely okay.

4/1 is the best date for Kentucky. We're hosting a high school tournament on 4/15 and 4/29 is the weekend before our finals week.

Truman State's ranked preferences for this tournament are (1) April 1 for irony, (2) April 29 since we have finals two weeks later, making the week after April 29 our hell week, and (3) April 15 since we have many players who live nowhere near Ohio that will want to be at their homes on Easter Sunday.

Barring objections, this tournament will almost certainly be on April 1. Will confirm the date shortly unless I hear outcry otherwise.

Hey all,

Due to the nefarious machinations of the OSU scheduling department, it now seems like it will be very difficult to hang on to a suitable set of rooms for April 1. Since this weekend worked so well for everyone, rather than move the tournament to another week, I'm inclined to host it Sunday (for which we have already preemptively secured rooms).

Does that work for people? I actually think this will work better for a few hs teams/Michigan, but I'd like to confirm it doesn't cause problems for others.

With this tournament about a week and a half away, I wanted to remind teams to shoot me an email registering (anyone listed in the field is officially registered, so you're good). I've heard interest from other schools, but am still waiting for confirmations.

Field updated (there's still room available, but teams should contact me IMMEDIATELY if they want to add).


A full logistics email will be sent out this week, but please make checks out "The Academic Team at the Ohio State University."

I imagine we'll just do a full round robin right? We'd like to get back to East Lansing at a reasonable time so this would work best for us. Ultimately you make the final call though.

This tournament will take place in the Enarson Classroom Building, with registration starting at 8:30 in Room 230. Rounds will start at 9:00 AM sharp.

The best place to park is the Tuttle Garage at 2050 Tuttle Park Pl.

A logistics email detailing the schedule, etc. should have been received by all teams, so please contact me ASAP if you didn't get one.

Michigan defeated OSU B in the second game of an advantaged final to win the OSU site of EMT. Full stats will be up shortly.

EDIT: Stats are up at http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournament ... all_games/

Thanks to all staffers who came out, particularly given the amount of team/staffer drops we had in the past ~72 hours, which bordered on the tragicomic. In particular, thanks to Normal Luc for providing his top-notch moderating services.
