Texas QB Camp Tournament mirror @ Michigan (August 10)

Post by women, fire and dangerous things » Tue Jul 22, 2014 3:21 pm

The University of Michigan will be hosting a mirror of the Texas Quiz Bowl Camp tournament on August 10, the day after our VCU Open mirror (viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16045). The original announcement for the tournament is at viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16037.

Just like on Saturday, we'll be squatting in Mason Hall, and the tournament will start at 9:00. The fee will be $40 per team (which is exactly the same as the mirror fee), with no discounts.

Teams should email me at wnediger@umich.edu to register.

The tournament proper will be followed by shootouts on whichever of the side events we don't get through on Saturday evening (Tricon 2.5, Imaginary Landscapes, and DUST Bowl).

FIELD:

House team
Cheyne Kothari
DCC (2 teams)
Lafer/Teevens/Wolfe/Edwards
Jerry/Ryan

If I have a surfeit of packets for the Mike Cheyne Memorial Battle Royal, I wouldn't mind reading/playing them here, mainly because I want to take on Pat Freeburn.

I'll definitely be at this, so I'll also throw myself in the ring to play any side events I've yet to play (Tricon and maybe Imaginary Landscape) and staff for those I have.

It appears I haven't joined a team for this. I'll be around....so if a sixth team is needed, whatever works.

The Cheyne/Kothari/Minarik/Wang team went undefeated to win this tournament, and the house team came in second.
