IKEA Midwest (MN, WI, IL, IN, MI, OH) Mirror - December 5th

Post by ganman0305 »

Hello all! I hope everyone is staying happy and healthy the best they can during these crazy times!

On behalf of Iowa Quiz Bowl, I am happy to announce that we will be hosting Columbia and Georgia Tech's medium difficulty college set IKEA on December 5th, 2020 on an online Discord server. More information about the set can be found on this main post.

Registration and Logistics

To register for this tournament, please email me at [email protected] with the tagline "IKEA Registration" and include your number of teams and contact information. Also, please fill out this registration form.

We will be starting the tournament promptly at 9:00 AM CT. I will be actively in making sure people are on the server before this time, but please make sure you're able to see the server by 8:30 that morning. I'll have a staffer meeting at 8:30 which will lead into the general meeting. More details will be added here and emailed to teams as the date approaches.

Tournaments Fees:

$90 per team.

Staffing

If you are interested in being a staffer or bringing one with your team, please email me and give me your contact information. I'll meet with you before the tournament to test your audio quality.

Please let me know if you have questions! Thank you!

After private discussions with representatives of the Iowa and Michigan teams, the editors of IKEA have decided to ban Tuhin Chakraborty from participating in all IKEA mirrors at the request of the latter. Given Tuhin's actions, both at tournaments and in other quizbowl contexts, as well as the circumstances of the Michigan club's leadership, we feel this action is necessary to ensure that IKEA tournaments have the environment we seek to create.
