MUT at VCU (04/02/2016)

Post by Cody » Mon Feb 01, 2016 9:35 pm

This is the general announcement for the VCU mirror of the Minnesota Undergraduate Tournament (MUT), to be hosted at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, on Saturday, April 2, 2016 from 8:15am to about 5pm. More information about MUT can be viewed at the original announcement for the tournament.

Please note that there is also a MUT mirror at University of Pennsylvania, on March 20, which is equidistant from us for beltway DC/MD teams. Please choose the site that best fits your date needs.

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.

The opening meeting will likely occur in Harris 101.

Eligibility:
As the name of the tournament implies, this tournament is only open to undergraduate and high school students, not graduate students. Undergraduate means anyone with no bachelor's degree (or equivalent degree, or greater degree); students in their fifth (or greater) year of college are still eligible to play if they meet this condition.

Registration & fees:
base fee: $100 / team
buzzer discount: -$5
staffer discount: -$10
distance discount: -$10 / 200 miles traveled one-way, per school
new school: -$40 (played at most 4 collegiate tournaments in the past 2 years)

The minimum fee is $40 / team. Discounts for staffers may only be claimed if you are transporting and/or lodging the staffer in question (this includes external staffers recruited by me: if you transport them, you get the discount).

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 person that you think would be interested in attending.

Method of payment:
All players 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. Unless cleared with me beforehand, teams that 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.

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 $10 late payment penalty.

Team & roster size:
Teams may consist of up to six players. Up to four players on a team may play at one time. There is a halftime substitution opportunity in each game for teams composed of more than four players. 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, which will be some time after 12 PM.
