ACRONYM Mirror

Post by MacQuizBowl »

We, the Macalester College Quiz Bowl team, have been given permission by Erik Nelson to host a mirror of the ACRONYM VIII tournament (see viewtopic.php?f=19&t=16880) on Saturday, March 7th, here at Macalester College (1600 Grand Ave, St. Paul, MN 55105). The gameplay will run from 9 to 4 (with an hour for lunch). After not so lengthy discussion, we have decided to make this an open tournament. Any and all teams that have not played or had a part in editing this year's ACRONYM tournament are eligible and encouraged to join.

We've negotiated a $20 per player registration fee with Erik, though we will deduct $5 dollars from the fee for each buzzer system brought in, as well as $20 per moderator contributed. Cash payment is preferred. If anyone would be interested, please email me at [email protected] with contact info and number of players by midnight of Wednesday, March 4. Our field cap will be 12 teams.

[UPDATE]
Our current field is as follows. Any additional registrations will be accepted until midnight tonight.

I won't be in town anyway, but it seems like you could get a lot more people by making it an open tournament and allowing anyone, including non college students, to play.

Mike is right about this. My teammates and our money would like to play this.

I'm glad to see this taking place. I was beginning to think I might have already played in my last IRL trash tournament.

Our team, the Vast Robot Armies of a Woman Scorned, cleared the field at 8-0. Thanks a ton to Macalester for hosting and staffing--this was a really enjoyable event, and other than a hiccup or two in the morning did a lot to restore their reputation as hosts!

Stats will be up when Carsten enters them.
