MAGNI Mirror at Valencia College (10/15/2011)

Post by wd4gdz » Sun Aug 28, 2011 8:59 pm

Valencia College in Orlando, Florida will be the site of a MAGNI mirror on Saturday, October 15. It is a regular difficulty college tournament.

Logistics:

The tournament will almost certainly be held at Valencia's West Campus. We are aiming to begin play promptly at 9:00 AM, with registration taking place between 8:15 and 8:45, followed by a short meeting. There will be about an hour for lunch. Further details regarding the tournament’s logistics will be provided as they become available.

Format and Eligibility:

For any questions regarding eligibility, difficulty, etc., please consult the general announcement found here:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11748

Registration:

To register, please send an email to me at wfb04 (at) my (dot) fsu (dot) edu and indicate the number of teams, buzzers, and moderators that you are planning to bring. Also, let me know if you would like an invoice.

Fees:

Base fee: $100 per team, -$10 per subsequent team (3 teams thus being 100 + 90 + 80 = $270)
Buzzer discount: -$10 per working buzzer
Moderator discount: -$10 per moderator
Travel discount: -$10 per 200 miles traveled

For any additional questions, please email me, Billy Beyer, at wfb04 (at) my (dot) fsu (dot) edu.

Valencia can provide two buzzers.

I shouldn't speak for UCF, but I will--Mickey Sizemore told me he and his brother, at least, will definitely play for UCF. I'll put him in touch.

Beardo! Confirm for the Gators!

There's a slightly updated field above. Based on the number of moderators and buzzers, I'm going to tentatively cap the field at 16 teams. That means there are only a couple more spots left.

If there are indeed 14 packets as advertised, 9-round prelims after which the top 5 teams play in a top bracket for 4 more rounds, and likewise for the bottom 5 teams in a bottom bracket, perhaps?

Alternatively, Round 1 can be two games, 5 teams each CAC-style, with the top 3 teams from each game advancing to the semis. We'll be over in time for the FSU game, for sure!

5-bracket RRs would have to be 5 rounds; if you're going to do a playoff, 4-3-3 (with possible cross-bracket matches for the bottom two) would probably work best. That also leaves you 2 packets for finals.

Billy did a great job hosting, starting on time, printing and posting stats frequently, and keeping us readers on time. The Valencia teams had a good time, and they learned a lot. Congrats to the Kelson boys, whom we can identify by the trail of dead in their wake.
