The tournament set will be entirely house-written by the Penn team, so no packet submission is required. See Penn's announcement for more details about the set. In addition, please note that no open teams will be permitted; all players on a team must be enrolled at the same school.
We will be using the same fee structure as the main site:
We can accept payment on the day of the tournament in the form of cash or checks made out to "MIT Quiz Bowl Team".Base fee: $120 per team
Working buzzer discount: $10 each
Approved moderator discount: $15 each
Travel discount: $15 (more than 200 miles one way according to Google maps)
To register, email me at [email protected] with the number of teams, buzzers (if any), and moderators (if any) you are bringing, as well as a cell phone number at which we can contact you on the day of the tournament. Posts in this thread will be considered expressions of interest, but you must email me the preceding information to be considered officially registered. We'll set a field cap of 16 teams for now, to be expanded upon confirmation of sufficient staff.
Check-in on the morning of the tournament will run from 8:30 to 9:00 AM in room 6-120, which is located on the first floor of MIT's Building 6. Games will start as soon as possible after everyone has arrived, and will take place in the nearby Building 4.
For teams unfamiliar with traveling to Boston, you should know that while MIT is easily accessible by public transit, parking on campus is extremely limited. There is a small parking lot at 139 Massachusetts Avenue (on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Vassar Street) that several teams have used in the past; other information about parking is available here. On public transportation, take the Red Line to the Kendall/MIT stop, which is marked along with building 6 on this map.
