The Tardigrades team consists of players from UNC Wilmington who communicated to us that they haven't yet been confirmed as a registered organization with their university. We are not aware of any rule barring players from the same university competing in a tournament, even under a pseudonym, so we allowed them to register.

Neat. Huh. I didn't know that a) there were pseudonymous teams in college quizbowl, and b) that college administrations were that draconian. Good to see more schools playing quizbowl.

Very cool to see a UNC-W team up and running! And to see so many teams from Chapel Hill.

Any updates on parking and a building location with a room number?

We will be driving a minibus that is too tall for a parking garage.

If you are driving a minibus we recommend parking behind Mann Hall, which can be seen on this map: http://www2.acs.ncsu.edu/trans/maps/map-parking.pdf

The tournament will be held in Daniels Hall and the central meeting room will be 218. Registered teams will be receiving an email from us shortly with more information.
