Post by Apocolocyntora »

I am pleased to announce that the Midwest site of 2021 WORKSHOP will be hosted by the University of Minnesota on Saturday, March 27, 2021.

The tournament will take place virtually on Zoom. The opening meeting will begin at 8:45 AM CT and gameplay will begin at 9:00 AM CT. I, Tora Husar, will be the tournament director for this event.

Eligibility
Teams from Minnesota, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio are eligible for this tournament. Teams must be closed and abide by ACF's eligibility guidelines.

Rules
This tournament will follow ACF’s official gameplay rules. Teams and staffers will also be required to abide by WORKSHOP's official code of conduct. This tournament will have an initial field cap of 12 teams, but we will expand the field so long as we are able to recruit enough staffers. This tournament will use Advanced Stats.

Per WORKSHOP's official rules, players will be required to keep their cameras turned on and keep one hand visible on screen during rounds. Any players who are not able to satisfy these requirements should email [email protected] at least a week before the tournament in order to arrange an alternative solution.

Please email [email protected] in order to register for this tournament. Registration will close on March 21, 2021.

–$25 per each team-provided staffer

- $20 shorthanded discount (for teams of only one or two players)

We are generally only able to accept payment by check. If your team will not be able to pay via check, please email me so that we can make an alternative arrangement prior to the tournament.

Minimum fee: $50 per team

Staff
If you are interested in staffing, please fill out this form. Due to university-based restrictions, we will be paying external staffers in $30 gift cards to the restaurant, food delivery, or food vendor provider of their choice.
