ANNOUNCEMENT: MAGNI Mirror at Carleton College (10/22/11)

Post by CaptainSwing »

The Carleton College Academic Quiz Team will be hosting a mirror of MAGNI on Saturday, October 22. It is a regular difficulty tournament written by Chris Chiego and Auroni Gupta from UCSD, Matt Jackson, John Lawrence, and Kevin Koai from Yale, and Jerry Vinokurov.

Logistics:

The tournament will most likely be held in Olin Hall, with the main room being Olin 149. Here is a campus map: http://apps.carleton.edu/map/. This is subject to change depending on the number of teams in the field.

Please try to arrive at or around 8:30, as we would like to begin play at 9 AM.

Format and Eligibility:

For any questions regarding eligibility, difficulty, etc., see this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11748

MAGNI is not a packet-submission tournament.

Registration:

To register, please send an email to me at [email protected] and indicate the number of teams, buzzers, and moderators that you are planning to bring. If you have any special payment arrangements you would like to make please let me know.

Fees:

Base fee: $100 per team, -$10 per subsequent team (3 teams thus being 100 + 90 + 80 = $270)
Buzzer discount: -$10 per working buzzer
Moderator discount: -$10 per moderator
Travel discount: -$10 per 200 miles traveled

Field:
University of Minnesota (4)
Drake (1)
Northern Michigan (2)
University of St. Thomas (2)
Gustavus (1)
St. Olaf (1)
Carleton (1)

The goal of this event is to provide a tournament with a moderate difficulty level while still offering answer lines and bonus parts which inexperienced players can convert. If your team is interested in attending, please don't hesitate to send me an email at [email protected].

Will the awkward field of 11 be resolved at some point? (Although I guess with byes, you get more staffers)

St. Olaf is now sending a team - dodged the 11-team tournament bullet.
