Are you allowing mirrors?

Updated the first post to reflect three mirror sites. We're still interested in mirrors, particularly the East/West coasts.

Looks interesting! Definitely looking forward to playing either in Waterloo or even down in Missouri.

I'm certainly interested in playing, especially if there is a Virginia Tech mirror. I understand what ACF Fall difficulty looks like. Out of curiosity, will you be using the ACF distribution, or will it be modified in any way?

If there really will be a Virginia Tech mirror, count me in! Open tournament on ACF Fall difficulty, why not?

Since I missed MUT, I feel obliged to play this, assuming there is in fact a mirror at Virginia Tech. If anyone's interested in forming a team, please message me or indicate so in this thread.

We're trying to figure out a plan for running a VT mirror, but because of the way the university structures the room reservation process, I don't know if we'll be able to find space on campus on a date that is within their restrictions.

If there's another venue nearby that would be willing to let us run the tournament there, please get in touch with either me or Mike Hundley.

In addition to our expressed interest in hosting a mirror of this in the fall, Penn State *may* send a team or two to the VTech mirror of this (if it is, in fact, happening). Most of us are out of town over the summer, but we've got a few friends who I imagine I could bully into pitching in for gas and tournament fare.

Definitely happening, on that date. The only tentative part is the location. I'm trying to find a spot I can host it for free.

Split thread for different mirrors?
