In case anyone didn't see this, we had some people ask for a different date for this, so we're currently running a date poll here.

Since 6/25 beat out 7/9 in the poll, we're moving this tournament to that date. More information will be forthcoming soon.

This is going to be a mirror of the NASAT set. I will be directing it, and you'll need to email me to officially register (jacob.orourke.7@gmail.com).

Here's a team formation spreadsheet for everyone to use.

Hello, everyone! I'm pleased to announce that we will also be hosting a mirror of the ACRONYM trash tournament after the NASAT mirror. I, Charles Hang, will be directing it.

Registration

To register, please e-mail me at charleshang228@yahoo.com with the following information:

1/ How many teams you will bring.
2/ How many buzzers you will bring.
3/ How many players you will have, as well as their names.
4/ How many staff (moderators and scorekeepers) you will bring.

Please form and register a team before the event. A team formation spreadsheet is available here.

Fee Structure

$10/player

We will be ordering pizza to eat between the academic and trash events. There a $4 per person charge if you want pizza.

We are, of course, willing to make accommodations if a team has trouble paying and wishes to arrange a payment plan, etc.

Please make checks out to "Washington University Academic Team;" we can also take cash but prefer checks.

Location

As mentioned above, it will be in Seigle Hall. Parking is plentiful.

Time

We will begin around 4-5 PM. Please show up by 4 for this tournament, or get in touch with me by phone if you know you can't make it on time. Once you register, I'll send you a confirmation with my phone number.

We will end the tournament around 8, depending on how many rounds we play (which depends on how many teams sign up).

Tournament Format

Historically, we've had about 6 teams for these events. If that stays true, we'll probably play a round robin with a final, with the possibility of additional games.

I posted this on the spreadsheets too, but assuming I can take off work that day I'm planning on playing both tournaments. Also looking for teammates so let me know if you want to team up.

Because I forgot that my brother's graduation party is the same day, Sean Phillips is going to take over directing St. Louis Open's academic event. I'll still take registrations and forward them on to him.

So it looks like we have six teams registered at present for the NASAT mirror on Saturday. Please communicate to your teammates to be in Seigle Hall, Room L006 starting at 8am with an eye to starting rounds by 8:30. Seigle Hall is building 97 on this map:

https://wustl.edu/wp-content/uploads/20 ... rthmap.pdf

Please park in the marked yellow zones or at a meter. Weekend parking is free.

We will do a double round robin (with lunch in between round robins) with any finals if necessary after that. Please continue to use the google spreadsheet to make any roster changes but as of 12:01 am Friday I will not allow any new teams to register unless necessary. PM me here if you need my phone number. I think I have emailed one rep from almost every team.

See you in Seigle Hall on Saturday!

Stats from the NASAT Mirror can be found here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournament ... all_games/. Dylan Minarik's team defeated the Missouri Open team to win the tournament.

Much thanks to Sean Phillips for directing this for me after work obligations forced me to drop from directing the tournament!

This day was a lot of fun. I want to thank the teams for their great spirit and attitude all day. I'd also like to thank the staff Kevin Stockman, Abby Kuchnir, Marshall Mullins and Peter Kahn. It was a pleasure to work with each and every one of you today and you were all such top notch pros! I hope to see you all at WUAT events for years to come!

Seconded. Always fun when I actually get to play a little quizbowl and see just how rusty I am these days. :D

Thanks to the staff, my teammates and all the other teams for an awesome day.
