MUT at Ohio State (3/22/2014)

Post by unknot » Fri Mar 07, 2014 1:55 am

This is an announcement that Ohio State will be hosting a mirror of the Minnesota Undergraduate Tournament on March 22, 2014. General information about MUT can be found on the announcement here:

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)

Undergraduates and high school students only.

To register, please email me at friesen.15 [at], with the number of teams, buzzers, and staffers that you plan to bring to the tournament. Any questions regarding to the tournament can be sent here as well.

Method of Payment (borrowed from Cody Voight)
All teams must pay by the day of the tournament. We prefer to accept payment in person right before the tournament starts, but we will accept checks by mail ahead of time if your procedures require it. Teams who do not pay by the day of the tournament will be charged a $25 penalty and will have two weeks to pay their total amount before we start mailing letters to your school administration about it.

We can accept cash, personal checks, or checks from school, school district, or quizbowl club funds. We have no ability to process purchase orders, credit cards, Paypal, or any other forms of payment. Bringing forms of payment outside of the three listed will be considered nonpayment and subject you to the $25 late payment penalty.

All checks must be made out to "The Academic Team at The Ohio State University" Variations on this long-winded official title such as "The OSU Academic Team" have given us no problems in the past, but please try to use our full title to avoid any snafus. If you require a pre-tournament invoice in order to have a check cut, let us know early enough for your school to process the payment. We can generally send you an invoice the same day.

Information about where the tournament has been located will be made available as soon as our reservation has been confirmed by the university.

Current Field (as of March 18)
Registered: MSU (1 team), Kenyon (1 team), Michigan (2 teams), Dublin Scioto (1 team)
Interested: Detroit Central Catholic

Thank you!
