MacVanity IV @McMaster - June 24, 2017

Post by Senator_Jay » Wed Apr 19, 2017 2:48 pm

Hey everyone, it's that time again! I, Jay Misuk, in association with McMaster Quizbowl, am pleased to announce MacVanity IV, which should be taking place in the McMaster University Student Center (MUSC) on June 24, 2017. As with the previous iterations, we're going guerrilla-style, with a loose distribution (tending toward hybrid-style), packet-submission. Part of the proceeds will be going towards the McMaster Children's Hospital.

Remember, this is intended to be a chance for you to write about the things you like, to get practice with writing, to have some fun, and to support a good cause! Any submissions, registration, or questions should go through my email, jay.misuk@gmail.com.

Distribution:

22/22 Overall

At least 1/1 Meta
At least either 1/0 or 0/1 Lit
At least either 1/0 or 0/1 History
At least either 1/0 or 0/1 Science
At least either 1/0 or 0/1 RMP
At least either 1/0 or 0/1 Fine Arts
At least either 1/0 or 0/1 Movies
At least either 1/0 or 0/1 TV
At least either 1/0 or 0/1 Music
At least either 1/0 or 0/1 Video Games
At least either 1/0 or 0/1 Misc. Trash

Novel question forms, answer delivery, and unique pack layouts are welcome, within reason! (ie, participatory bonuses, visual tossups, packets set up like IHBB packets or MADMAN packets, etc.)

Cost Breakdown
$120/team
-$20 pack discount
-$5 buzzer discount
-$5 laptop discount
-$20 for each missing player below 4 players

Minimum cost: $30 (for a solo team, ill-advised...think about the children!)

I'll continue the tradition of writing but not showing up. I'll write a packet set up like an IHBB packets, but only if you promise that you read the third quarter like reach snappers.

Hey all,

We are definitely a go for this coming Saturday (June 24). I have heard from a number of people about attendance and pack-writing, but am currently looking for confirmations. Please either post on here, PM me, or send me a Facebook message to confirm A. if you are writing a pack, and B. if you are playing, and C. who is on your team. I think we could have up to 12 packets (optimistic), realistically 8-10, and so far have 5 confirmed staff, and at least 5-6 teams. Will update when possible.

Thanks!

Hey all, so this is still a go for tomorrow...

But so far I only have 3 packets, one of which is mine. Please get those packets into me ASAP!

And we'll see all of you bright and early, 2nd floor of MUSC (8:45ish).

I am working with Westmount people to finish our packet. Should give it to you bright an early Saturday morning.

EDIT: Our headquarters for today will be in MUSC Room 318. Hope to see everyone here at #8:45AM

Congratulations to Knightmare Chess for winning the tournament by going 9-0. Another round of thanks to Jay, Tim, Raymond, and all the teams whose players moderated their own packets. This tournament couldn't happen without you. Stats can be viewed here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournament ... all_games/

Also, because of everyone coming to play, $500 will be donated to charity, the largest of any iteration of MacVanity. I really appreciate how old guards and newcomers alike can have fun while raising funds and awareness for a good cause. See you at this summer's next tournament!
