NASAT Available for Mirroring Starting 6/30

Post by AKKOLADE » Wed Mar 20, 2019 10:37 pm

This is a public request for mirrors, and a list of information of arranged mirrors, of this year's National All-Star Academic Tournament. The full announcement for the main site is up here.

I would prefer that mirrors be held the weekend of June 30 & July 1, though holding them later is plausible. The set will not be available for mirroring until the weekend of the 30th & 1st.

Pertinent information:
  • The mirror fee will be $40 per team.
  • Jakob Myers will be the chief editor.
  • As stated in the main site announcement: "Because this event will be played by highly skilled all-star teams, the question difficulty will be higher than that used at existing national championships such as the NSC and HSNCT. The style and subject distribution of the questions will be quite similar to existing “modified ACF” sets, such as the sets HSAPQ wrote in the past."
To request becoming a mirror site, please email me at fred@iqbtnasat.com. I'd be happy to answer any questions there or in this thread.

Could we get an update on the list of mirrors? I know that WuStl is hosting one next weekend and I would like to see if there are any more mirrors that have been confirmed.

I mistakenly left out the WUStL one. That’s been corrected.

At this time, these are the only confirmed mirrors per my notes. I have a couple other to announce after a formality or two.

Am I understanding this right that the Wustl mirror is now this Sunday? as opposed to 6/29 Saturday?

It's Saturday. I think it was originally announced as being on Sunday by mistake, so that might be the source of the confusion.

Sorry; a family member had a medical emergency the week after NASAT, so that & work has kept me busy. I will be trying to get this set up soon.

If anyone needs anything for this weekend’s mirrors, please contact Jakob Myers. Hosts should have received the set already.

Is there any update on this? The summer is ending soon so I’d like to know if this is happening.
