MUT at VCU (Richmond, VA) on 2013/04/06

Post by Cody » Mon Jan 28, 2013 12:35 pm

This is the general announcement for the VCU mirror of the Minnesota Undergraduate Tournament (MUT), likely to be hosted at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, on Saturday, April 6, 2013 from 10am to about 6pm. More information about MUT can be viewed at the original announcement for the tournament.

Location, directions & parking:
The tournament will likely take place in Grace E. Harris Hall, located at the intersection of Main Street and Harrison Street, in Richmond, Virginia. One will want to park either on the street, or in the West Main Street Parking Deck, which has entrances on Cherry Street and Laurel Street and is nominally located at 801 W Main St. A campus map is accessible here.

Registration & fees:
base fee: $100
buzzer discount: -$5
staffer discount: -$10
travel discount: -$10 per 200 miles one-way as determined by Google Maps

The minimum fee is $0.

To register, you must e-mail me at voighta@vcu.edu with the number of teams, buzzers, and staffers you intend to bring, an email address where you can be contacted with details, and a mobile phone number in case I need to contact you the morning of the tournament. Feel free to share this announcement with any schools that you think would be interested in attending. There is no further registration form or other action needed on your part in order to be officially registered; you only need to e-mail me at that address with the information requested. Posts made in this thread will not be considered official registrations; you must e-mail me.

Method of payment:
All teams must pay by the day of the tournament. We prefer to accept payment in person right before the tournament starts, but we will accept checks by mail ahead of time if your procedures require it. Teams who do not pay by the day of the tournament will be charged a $25 penalty and will have two weeks to pay their total amount before we start mailing letters to your school administration about it.

We can accept cash, personal checks, or checks from school, school district, or quizbowl club funds. We have no ability to process purchase orders, credit cards, Paypal, or any other forms of payment. Bringing forms of payment outside of the three listed will be considered nonpayment and subject you to the $25 late payment penalty.

All checks must be made out to "Quizbowl at VCU." If you bring a check not made out to "Quizbowl at VCU" and have no other method of paying for the tournament, you will be subject to the $25 late payment penalty.

If you require a pre-tournament invoice in order to have a check cut, let us know by January 12, so that we can send you the paperwork in time. If you do not let us know about this requirement by January 12, and it causes you to come to the tournament without your payment, then you will be subject to the $25 late payment penalty.

Team & roster size:
There may be a maximum of six players on one team's roster, up to four of whom may play at one time. There will be no exceptions to this rule. If you bring more than six players, you must register a second team to have all of them play. There is a halftime substitution opportunity in each game. Each player may appear on only one team's roster throughout the day-no switching from the B team to the A team, etc.

Food:
Neither breakfast nor lunch will be provided by the tournament. We will provide a list of suggested eateries for the lunch break.

With the registration of a 16th team, I am temporarily closing the field until I can fully assess the staff situation. Any further registrations will be put on a waiting list in the order they are received.

Pending the availability of more staff, there is room for one more team two more teams (which would bring us to 22) before I need to waitlist teams again. Claim them quickly!

Note also that there is a hard cap of 27 teams for this tournament due to the number of rooms we have available.

I've raised the cap to 24 teams for now; if I have enough interest, I can go up to 27 (but I'd definitely need 27 teams to show up).

If you want to make sure that no one on your team's name is horribly misspelled in the staaaaaats you should email, PM, or otherwise send me your roster. This will also help save time on Saturday, giving you TWO reasons to send me a roster, even if it isnt necessarily the final roster.

I'd like to sincerely thank all our guest staffers for this tournament; there's no way we could have run this tournament without you. In no particular order: Venu Katta, Nate Boughner, Andrew Feist, Colin Berry, Matt Bollinger, Dennis Loo, Eric Xu, Eric Douglass, Bryn Reinecke, Morgan Saxby and Evan Magner.

I hope everyone had a pretty good time; as a reminder, MUT questions are not yet clear. There is a private discussion group you can join by going to User Control Panel > Usergroups > (select) MUT 2013 discussion > (submit) Join selected.
