I, Charles Hang, will be the Tournament Director. To register for the tournament, or if you have any questions, please email me at [email protected].
TimeThe original tournament announcement wrote:Only undergraduate and high school students can play this tournament. If you are a grad student, you generally may not play. "Undergraduate" in this case does not follow the traditional ACF definition--fifth-year (or greater) undergraduates with no bachelor's-level degree are still eligible to play. (This is identical to the eligibility rules of last year's MUT.) Exceptions may be granted based on [Vasa Clarke's] discretion, depending on the state of the local circuit.
Tournament check-in will begin at 8:30 AM, morning announcements will be at 8:50, and play will begin at 9:00.
The tournament will probably take place in Eads Hall (Building 31 here). Any of the major parking lots at WashU should work for your parking needs.
To register, please e-mail me at [email protected] with the following information:
1/ The number of teams you will be bringing
2/ The number of buzzers you will be bringing

The tournament will be using the Eisenhower Memorial Tournament set, a spiritual successor to past years' Minnesota Undergraduate Tournament (MUT) sets. Past MUT sets can be found here.
Field (To be updated as registrations and expressions of interest appear)
"Sherman High School"
"Paul Manafortress of solitude"
WUSTL C + Cole
We are tentatively capping the field at 8 teams due to staffing limitations. If more teams than that express interest in attending, we are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to expand the field.
Please feel free to share this announcement with any schools that you think would be interested in attending.
