The tournament will take place in building 4 of MIT. A campus map can be found here.

To register for this tournament, please email me at meic1212 [at] mit [dot] edu. In your email, please provide your team name, the names of your players, and an emergency contact phone number from one of the players. Here is a team formation sheet. Please keep in mind that filling it out does NOT mean that you are registered; you have to email me to register.

The field cap will be 10 teams.

Base Fee: $120/team
Buzzers: -$10/working buzzer system
Staffers: -$15/competent staffer

We will also be hosting a mirror of TELEOLOGY (information here) as a side event, pending interest. An interest sheet is attached to the main team formation sheet. Please indicate your preferences for format (e.g. shootout, duos) and day (either a shorter tournament after Illinois Open on Saturday or a longer one on Sunday, the day after) - details for the tournament will be decided based on these responses.

I thought this tournament ran very well. Reading difficult questions all day in masks isn't easy, yet the staffers uniformly performed their jobs with enthusiasm and aplomb. Much thanks to MIT, and to the area staffer(s?) as well!
