ILLIAC Mirror at BYU: 2 March 2019

Post by MauriceRavel »

Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, UT will be hosting a mirror of Illinois Academic Competition (ILLIAC) on Saturday, March 2, 2019.

Difficulty Level:
College novice

Undergraduate college players or high school players. High school teams may be chimeras.

All rounds will be in room #3238 (same as last year) in the Wilkinson Student Center (WSC or WILK) on BYU campus. (Details to follow.) Rounds will start at 9:00 AM and run until the late afternoon with a short break for lunch. Depending on the number of teams, we'll likely do either a double or triple round robin with additional rounds as necessary.

Fee per Team:
-$10 for each buzzer system
-$50 for each additional team from a school

Field so far:
BYU (2 or 3)
BSU (1 or 2)
UC-Boulder (1 or 2)
To confirm your school, please email [email protected] with the number of teams you'll be bringing, the names and emails of any staffer(s) you'll be bringing, and how many buzzer systems you'll be bringing.

Staffers so far:
Colin McNamara
Eric Lenhart
Ian McLaughlin
(Anyone who staffs all day will be treated to a free lunch from the CougarEat.)
