Virginia Tech Spring Invitational (4/13/2013 Blacksburg, VA)

Post by jeremykuhn »

The Virginia Tech Spring Invitational is being held on our campus in Blacksburg, VA on April 13, 2013 and will be a mirror of Prison Bowl.

LOCATION and REGISTRATION

Location: Holden Autitorium

Parking restrictions are not enforced on the weekends unless posted, and ample parking is available both around the Drillfield, along the Alumni Mall, and in the lots and parking deck near Prices Fork Road.

Registration will begin at 8 AM, and we expect the opening meeting to begin promptly at 8:30 with gameplay immediately following.

To register, please contact Jeremy Kuhn via email at ([email protected]) with the coach's contact information, including a phone number where the coach can be reached on the day of the tournament, the number of teams, and any expected discounts.

ELIGIBILITY

Teams are limited to six players, four of which may play at any one time. If a school wishes to bring more than six players, they must register an additional team.

FORMAT
The field is initially capped at 20 teams, but may be expanded if resources allow. Teams in excess of the cap will be placed on a waitlist and allowed into the field in order.

If your coach hasn't emailed Jeremy to register, Alex, please have them do so. I'll get Jeremy to post a field update in the next few days.

All the teams interested that have contacted me are at the bottom of the original post, have someone email me the information I need (email, phone number, number of teams, any buzzers or staff help) and I will add your team to who is in.

Only one month until the tournament, I would appreciate anyone who hasn't given me at least a rough estimate of teams/buzzer/staff count that is interested in attending do so as soon as you can.

Hidden Valley was a late drop, so we have 10 teams here today. After 5 rounds of a 10-team round robin, Guilford A is 5-0 and Guilford B and Schrodinger's Academy are 4-1.

After the round-robin, Guilford A finished first going 9-0, Guilford B was second going 8-1, and Schrodinger's Academy was third, finishing 7-2. Guilford A and B declined to play an advantaged final, so congratulations to Guilford A for winning the Virginia Tech Spring Invitational! Stats will be posted soon.
