Fake ICT 2 Mirror at UIUC - March 21st

Post by dtaylor4 » Thu Feb 12, 2009 6:34 pm

This is the formal announcement for a mirror of the Fake Intercollegiate Championship Tournament Experiment 2, to be held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It is likely that we will also be mirroring the comic books tournament Saturday night, and Ryan Westbrook will also be running a side tournament on Sunday as well, so look out for those announcements as well.

FEES:
Base fee $120 per team
Buzzers: -$10 each (no limit)
Clocks: -$5 each (no limit)
Staffers: -$10 each (no limit)
Laptops: -$10 each (no limit)
Minimum fee: $0

To get a discount, buzzers must actually work for the purpose of a normal quizbowl game; that is, they must have eight working activators, a working control box, and either a working power cord or a fresh battery, as applicable. Don't waste everyone's time bringing broken buzzers to the tournament. That's actually worse than bringing no buzzers at all! Similarly, if clocks are battery-powered, they must contain a fresh battery to qualify for the discount. Don't bring broken staffers either.

ELIGIBILITY: In order to give teams preparing for the ICT the best possible competition, this is an entirely open tournament. Any team whatsoever of 1 to 4 people may play, regardless of whether the people involved go to the same school (or any school).

REGISTRATION: To register, post in this thread or email me at (username)@illinois.edu with the number of teams, buzzers, clocks, and staffers you want to bring, and an email address where you can be contacted with details.

LOCATION/DIRECTIONS: The tournament will take place in the Armory, on Armory Avenue stretching from Fourth to Sixth St. As soon as we get room reservations, such information will be disseminated.

PARKING: Across the street from the east side of the Armory is a huge parking lot where you can park for free. I will warn, however, that traffic will suck, as many people will be leaving town.

TIMES: Registration will run from 8:30 to 8:45 AM, with the goal of starting Round 1 as soon as possible after 8:45.

FORMAT: Games will use the NAQT rules (http://naqt.com/rules.html). There will be 18 packets produced for this tournament, and the tournament format will give teams as many games as possible, given the field size and our cognizance of the fact that people don't want to stay too late on a Sunday.

PAYMENT: All teams must pay on Saturday morning, in one of two forms: cash, or a personal or institutional check made out to Academic Buzzer Team. Unless you have made a specific arrangement, you must pay your full registration fee at or before the tournament. If you need an invoice ahead of time so that your sponsor can cut a check, let me know. Otherwise, all teams will receive invoices at the tournament.

I assume by "video games tournament" you mean "comic books tournament." In any case, Minnesota will likely have 1-2 teams for both FICHTE and Fake Trashionals.

Iowa is interested in attending this, although I do not know whether I will personally be able to attend. For the time being, put us down for 1 team.

Also, will there be a laptop discount?

I adjusted the staff discount to account for this.

Also: the schedule for the weekend will go like this:

Saturday - Fake ICT
After Fake ICT - Experiment 2
Sunday - Fake TRASHionals
After Fake TRASHionals - Comic Books

Since I believe only three packets of COMICS were read at Terrapin, there are three packets blind to everyone. Depending on interest and time and whatnot, this could just entail reading the three blind-to-all packets.

I also expect live and timely updates of the NCAA tourney throughout this tournament.

Chicago will be there, but probably not rolling as deep as we usually do since that is also our first weekend of spring break. I'd guess 1-3 teams.

Harvard was at one point making plans to be at this. I have no idea if those plans are still being made -- you'd have to ask an officer of the team. But if Harvard doesn't go, I will go as a free agent.

I would also like to throw my hat into the ring as a free agent. I will be driving a team of four from ORD to UIUC Friday evening and back Sunday. As usual, whenever I compete at UIUC, I have free room and board with a family.

Also, could attending teams/players let me know how many clocks/buzzers you will be bringing? I'd prefer to sew those up sooner rather than later.

Michigan: 2 buzzer sets, and let's say 6 timers? We have ~18 timers and could bring all of them if A) they're needed, and B) that's not obnoxious.

Minnesota will know (hopefully by tonight) if we are bringing 2 or 3 teams. If we are not bringing 3 teams, then we will have at least one free agent (perhaps me).

As a matter of fact, the gym is pretty close to there. The problem is that this is our spring break, so all campus buildings except for the one that we're hosting the tournament in are closed, regardless of where we reserve rooms. I bet we can find an unused outdoor court somewhere, though.

Tryg is incorrect. The main rec center (ARC) will be open 11-9 both days. Members (in this case, students here) can sponsor five guests at $10 a person. I'm going in on this, and I'm sure Mike/Tryg would as well. There are ample courts (8 that are primarily basketball, and given that it's break, we'd practically have our pick.

After contacting the Campus Rec people, we're going with the idea outlined above. $10/non-student, we'll just pick a court. There is parking right across the street from the ARC (201 E. Peabody, Champaign, IL 61820).

I plan on running a tight ship during FICHTE. Since Ryan is running the Experiment, I'll leave that to him.

Maybe we could do this while people are playing the comic books thing on Sunday? I really doubt Saturday will work if the gym is only open til nine.

Harvard is leaving in the morning on Sunday to catch flights around noon or 1 pm. Could we play in between FICTE and The Experiment as an hour and a half break?

Maybe it will have to be Friday night. I'm going to make a thread in AHAN about this so that we're not cluttering up real quizbowl stuff. Expect the link soon.

So, I realized its a little silly for me to drive down to assist with the Experiment, and not play in this. So I'm throwing in as a free agent.

Minnesota:

How many teams are y'all bringing?

Also: Due to a potential shortage of staffers, teams may be asked to read on their byes. If you have a laptop and are playing, please bring it just in case.
