Open NASAT Mirror @ UMN, 8/18

Postby Muriel Axon » Tue Jun 26, 2018 11:42 pm

UMN Quizbowl is pleased to announce an open mirror of NASAT on Saturday, August 18. Details about the set can be found here.

The tournament will have an initial field cap of twelve teams, pending recruitment of qualified staffers. The entry fee with be $90 per team, with $10 discounts for: (1) each buzzer, (2) each staffer, and (3) each 150 mi of distance traveled (one-way). We're prepared to offer steep discounts on an individual basis for teams that are new to quiz bowl, or have not played a tournament in a long time. The minimum fee will be $50 per team.

Free agents may use this thread to form teams. To register, please email suacb@umn.edu, and cc: kotha020@umn.edu. There is a spreadsheet for team formation here:

If there is interest, we could consider playing any summer side events not played during the Illinois Side Event Weekend the prior week. Email the two addresses above if you're interested in hosting side events. We will send further logistical details and details about payment to registered teams, but feel free to PM or email me with specific questions.

EDIT: In response to questions about how the distance discount applies to teams coming from different places -- if you are coming from different directions and cannot carpool, please contact me and we'll negotiate it individually.

Contrary to my claim that we'll host side events not taking place at the Illinois event, we've had interest in mirrors of SNICK, WORLDSTAR, and Words and Objects, most likely on Sunday following the tournament. More information possibly forthcoming (?)
