Shamelessly quoting from the other thread, because all the information is still valid.
I wrote:I will be serving as TD for this tournament. To register, please email me the following information: your team roster, number of staffers, number of buzzers, and a phone number I can call in the morning if something goes wrong.

It's easier for me (and we can start earlier) if teams are formed before beforehand. However, I don't mind a small number of people registering as free agents. (Obviously, it defeats the purpose of registration if zero teams and twenty free agents register. Please don't do this.)

For now, I'm capping the field to 9 teams. This could be raised if there's enough interest and staffers.

I'll update this post with the field as soon as I get registrations.
Field (8)
McMaster (Peter, Leslie, Brian, Adam)
Patrick, Rein, and 2 others
McGill A (Joe and 2 others)
McGill B (3 players)
Ottawa (Dennis, Shelby, Rodrigo, Chris)
Aaron, Christine, and 1 other
Jay Misuk and 1 other
Aayush and Brian

Free agents (2)
2 Waterloo players

Total players: 27

I cannot, as I have plans that day. I am sure it will be off the proverbial chain.

I should clarify that I will still likely be in Waterloo that day and my plans are in the afternoon, so if some team absolutely needs a scrub player for a few rounds, I may be in. Message me if this extremely disappointing offer appeals to you.

This is a friendly reminder to register if you haven't already. From the people who have expressed interest but haven't registered yet, I would expect 2-3 more teams. (Again, 7 teams is not good.) Please register by 6PM EDT on Tuesday June 23.

As with NASAT, I'd like to ask teams that have registered to confirm buzzers, rosters, contact information, an optionally a team name. Again, there will be a number of Waterloo free agents, assuming we don't need a house team.

Finally, for those curious, Delta Burke has 12 packets.

I'm pushing back the start time. Please meet at 9:00 AM tomorrow in MC 4059, so we can start games no later than 9:30.

See you tomorrow!

Stats are being posted here. Second round stats are up and third round scoresheets are coming in; there was a delay because I was reading the first two rounds.

EDIT: Playoff stats are being posted here

Wes Mack Presents Uptown Funk (Aayush, Brian, Jordan, Kira, and Faith) cleared the field to win outright. The Reply of the "Jay"porizhian Cossacks (Jay, Joe, and Luka) came second. Derek (Gap Band) was the top scorer (again). I'll be holding onto scoresheets, so let me know if there are errors.

Thanks again go to the club exec (Aayush, Faith, and Cole), the staffers (Faith, Kira, Benzene, Cole, Di, Jj, Peter, Erik, and Rein), the writers and editors of Delta Burke, and everyone who showed up. Thank you for making this possible!

People have started organizing trash now.

Thanks to Ming-Ho for a very smoothly run event, to all of our readers (Cole, JJ, The Massacre, Faith, Kira, and anyone I've missed) and to my awesome teammates Aayush, Brian, Kira, and Faith. Very fun!

Thank you very much to all of you who ran this tournament, especially Ming-Ho, who did so without even playing! Everything ran smoothly, and I had a great time playing trivia with awesome people. Can't wait for VETO!

I really had a lot of fun at this event and NASAT, and really like how this tournament was run (except for the lack of buzzers). I would like to thank Ming-Ho and all the other Waterloo staffers for making this weekend very enjoyable.
