SOUNDTRACK at NSC - Saturday night

Post by Silverman »

SOUNDTRACK, a film audio tournament, will be showing on Saturday night at NSC, after rounds have concluded. Signups are here.

There will be 5 packets of 20 audio tossups each, and we will be using a room promotion/relegation system, with exact details to be determined by field size. This tournament will cost $10 to play.

Per NSC side event policy,
Will Alston, in the Historature at NSC thread, wrote:The tournament will be using staff hotel rooms - please volunteer yours to help this event go smoothly! PACE requires that all roommates within a given hotel room consent to using their room for a side event, so please check with your roommates if they are OK with hosting a side event in their room. We also need buzzers, but we can't use team buzzers (those will be locked up during the night) - if you are a college team that has buzzers available, please consider allowing us to use them!
(Neither of the writers will be staying at the hotel, so rooms are even more essential.)

Historature is also running Saturday night, but I'm hopeful that the fields will have small enough overlap that running both tournaments is tenable. Also, SOUNDTRACK will be running at HSNCT so anyone who would like to play Historature and will be at both tournaments should play SOUNDTRACK there.

Please PM me or Aakash Patel if you have any questions!

Sure is, as long as we can get a room for it!

We're planning on starting this at 7pm, with adjustment if necessary to ensure people are able to get dinner first.

Let's gather at the buzzer check in desk.

Congratulations to Victor Prieto and Michael Yue, who tied at 200 points apiece in a 5-round shootout in the second tie in two weeks. Guess we should've written a tiebreaker tossup...

Scores:
Victor 200 (23/6)
Simon 40 (4/0)
Ryan 115 (14/5)
Michael 200 (20/0)
Casey 140 (17/6)
