BARGE at Mizzou - Sunday, January 15th

Post by Sen. Estes Kefauver (D-TN) »

Hello everybody!

In the spirit of giving thanks, Mizzou is going to be hosting a mirror of Chris Ray's BARGE tournament on January 15th, 2012 (the Sunday before MLK day). This will be a cheap tournament to give thanks for people who have helped us out with all of our high school events. This tournament will be a regular difficulty (mostly) tournament that is 100% open: anybody can make up any team they want, no matter who they are.

We will be charging per person. We will charge $25 as a base fee for everybody. If you staff Tiger Bowl IV on December 3rd at MU, we will offer a $15 discount, and will offer $5 discounts for buzzers. We will have a minimum of $10 per person (to cover the mirror fee). There is no packet writing requirement.

We will also entertain running one or two side events. I think we will run Eyes That Do Not See III for free for anybody who hasn't downloaded it from the archives (be honest, cheating on this would be ultra lame).

Register by emailing me at [email protected].

Hope to see you at Mizzou in January, and hope to see you at Tiger Bowl to claim those discounts!

I want to go to this, presumably with a team from WKU. Our attendance will depend on whether or not I actually find at least one other person at this university who wants to actually go to this tournament with me.

Thanks to everybody who came out and helped make this tournament happen, I hope everybody enjoyed themselves.

I am unsure who did what during the arts tournament, but my understanding is that it did happen, so I will ask around.

We were going to do the arts tournament, but only me and Isaac stayed. So we decided it would be a little ridiculous to do Eyes III with only 2 people.

Ah. I heard Chicago people were staying for it, guess not.

Sorry about this. A couple Chicago people were interested in playing, but we didn't have the critical mass necessary to make it worthwhile for people with cars (both of whom had already played) to stay longer.

This was a good tournament, and thanks to Charlie Dees and his fellow Missourians for making it happen.
