I think TIT is going to be in the fall, although I don't know what date Jeremy and Chris have set for that yet (if there is a date set).

Pending room reservations (the woman in charge of them is rather elusive during the summer), Harvard will be running the T Party--packet submission--on 12/6. Tournament announcement to come when said rooms come.

I nailed her within an hour of the expected time the day you wanted me to find her; her office hours had just changed.

At least she has a corporeal form during the school year and answers her email.

It looks pretty certain that the Valencia Delta Burke CC tournament will now be on Friday, 10/24, and Saturday, 10/25 (instead of the following weekend), sharing questions with an FSU-hosted HS tournament.

Within an hour, no less, apparently.

It seems that things I post at seven in the morning should be taken with a grain of salt. I had been using "found" twice and I vaguely remember thinking that I should find another verb for variety's sake. Apparently I didn't use the filters "make sure the verbs mean the same thing" and "make sure the second verb doesn't mean fuck."

Some of us are wondering what gave you the idea that GIT at WUSTL would be on November 1? We've not announced that nor was anyone intending to.

I told Andrew that. My apologies; conversations with people at WUSTL seemed to indicate that you guys were planning to host GIT that day.

Indiana University will be hosting its first-annual HO (Hoosier Open, that is) on November 22, 2008. Announcement forthcoming.

LIES! The GIT date has been decided on, and it will be happening (as previously surmised) on the 1st of November.

Is Rochester running an FDIC this year? It would most likely be Sep 27 if there were one, but that's a loop I'm out of.

Given that they are four hundred miles from the nearest confirmed site, perhaps they could bid to run EFT instead of a high school tournament this year.

400 miles, you say? And surely every bit as easy to run...

I dunno how many of them have already figured on playing EFT, of course, but there were always plenty of house teams for the IS FDICs when I was there. It's a thought.

Now to figure out where the Rochester people have gone off to.

I stickied this because I think it's useful enough to stay right up near the top of the forum all the time.

You can say something more definite, if you care to, about the T-Party. The date's not really tentative--if it'll be happening at all, it'll be happening then--and details should be forthcoming soon. (But details as far as packet-sub, approximately regionals-or-a-little-harder difficulty, etc. are certainly set.)

We could, but what we could also do is enter all the tournaments that have been announced so far into the Tournament Database. Then, you can simply filter all tournaments by the "college" level to get an up-to-date calendar.

I will start entering some of the tournaments. Anyone else can enter them as long as you get the info correct.

All collegiate academic tournaments that have announced with actual dates and sites are now entered into the TDB. You can browse a list of all upcoming collegiate-only tournaments at the first link below. Don't forget to also check for open tournaments at the second link.

Thanks for putting that database together; it's very convenient.

BTW, the date for Terrapin XXIII, which has been announced for 1/31/09, is listed as 1/21/09 in the database.
