University of Michigan- Ann Arbor
The guidelines for question writing are in the original post here. Teams coming to this site will have a modified question deadlines as outlined below:The Maryland Academic Quiz Team is pleased to announcement the 24th incarnation of our annual (okay, so there was no TIT in 2010. deal) Terrapin Invitational Tournament. We plan on making this year's tournament the same difficulty as last year, plus or minus epsilon, somewhere around the mythical "Regular Difficulty."
This is a packet submission event following the normal guidelines - if you were playing tournaments prior to last year, your team should be writing a packet. If your team meets this definition in name but doesn't really have much writing experience, you should email me *right away* to discuss it - I want teams to be able to attend this event, but building writing experience for teams is just as important as this event actually having enough submissions.
This set will be head edited by myself, SteveJon Guth, with assistance from the rest of the Maryland Academic Quiz Team.

+$10 - Formatting penalty for formatting your questions incorrectly (see formatting section below).

If you are a solo team or are a small team paying out of pocket, we are willing to negotiate additional discounts. Checks should be paid to Michigan Academic Competitions.
To register, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate how many teams you're bringing (or interested in bringing) and what discounts you think you apply for (such as the number of moderators and buzzers you're bringing).
