Interest in all-math side event?

Post by Deckard Cain » Mon Jan 05, 2009 12:08 am

Hi all,
I'm in the process of writing an all-math tournament with the intent of running it as a side event sometime later this year or early next year. The tournament will probably be tossup only, will provisionally be ready to run by the beginning of nationals season, and will be rather challenging, with answers ranging from ACF Fall-level to nationals-level and above.

Post in this thread with questions or comments or if you're interested in playing.

I'm probably interested if I go to wherever it's played.

Are you looking for writers/editors? I probably won't be at wherever it gets played, so I'd be happy to help write.

I'll play this. Its all non-computational, I assume.

Yes, all non-computational.

I'd play. If I can't attend, I could probably write some.

You said the magic words! I've been dreaming about this. At last, an opportunity to show my club president that I'm not entirely useless.
