Kansas State is tentatively looking to bring one team, one buzzer set, and possibly one volunteer.

Food: There are various options for breakfast and lunch on and off campus. We are considering providing a lunch to interested players at a cost of $3 -- this will be something along the lines of "build your own tacos." Let me know if this is something you would be interested in.
Payment: Please make checks payable to "Academic Competition Organization." Cash will also be accepted.

If you are interested in attending, please post here or email me at [email protected] with the number of teams, buzzers, moderators, etc. that you will be bringing.

We actually do now have rooms reserved in Baldwin Hall for ACF Fall November 6th. We have ten rooms reserved in said hall, with the "tournament central" being located in Baldwin Hall 176. This is where you will need to meet in the morning before tournament play actually begins. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email either me or Kevin Robb. My email is [email protected] I should be able to answer most of the questions you pose to me and if there arise any to which I do not know the answer I will defer to someone else. Again, all of us from the Truman Academic Competition Organization look forward to seeing you here in Kirksville on November 6th. Thank you all very much and have a wonderful day.

I'm pretty sure UIUC will have a team at this mirror. That team should have 3 buzzers with them.

UIUC and WUSTL were playing an advantaged final when I left earlier (WUSTL had a one game advantage). Truman A placed third with two losses to UIUC and a split with WUSTL.

Who is Brooke on Mizzou? Was this tournament not using ACF eligibility rules?

I think she was a friend of one of the team members who decided to come along. The impression I got was that she also went to Mizzou.
