(Note: On January 1, 2008, the University of Missouri - Rolla is changing its name to Missouri University of Science and Technology, or Missouri S&T.)

The UMR/MST Academic Competition Organization is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a mirror of Maryland's Terrapin Invitational Tournament on January 19, 2008. This is a packet-submission modified-ACF tournament, with question difficulty slightly above ACF Fall level. Packet submission details can be found at http://www.hsquizbowl.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4608 though since we are late getting this announcement out the submission deadlines have been altered.

The updated pricing structure is as follows:
+$100 - Base Fee
-$50 - Packet submitted by Saturday, December 8th.
-$25 - Packet submitted by Saturday, December 15th.
+$0 - Packet submitted by Saturday, December 22nd.
+$25 - Packet submitted by Saturday, December 29th.
+$50 - No packet submitted.
-$5 - Buzzer discount per school.
-$10 - Competent moderator discount per school
-$20 - Travel discount per team for coming more than 200 miles one way as judged by Google Maps.
+$10 - Formatting penalty for formatting your questions incorrectly
-$20 - Prize for the best unedited packet received in general, and by the best Division II (first two years play quizbowl) only team.
Minimum fee: $40.

To register for the tournament, email me, Matt Chadbourne, at mwcbp3 at umr dot edu. Please include the number of teams, buzzers, and staff you intend to bring.

We hope to see many of you here in January.

Thanks,

Matt Chadbourne
President, UMR/MST Academic Competition Organization

Assuming Maryland is OK with it, I'd recommend modifying the packet deadlines because as it is its almost impossible to get the $50 discount unless you have a spare packet already.

With the no-penalty deadline a couple of days away, here is the current field:

"Mystery Team" (1)
Truman State (1-2)

We don't want anyone to be kept away from this tournament due to finances, so if you need help paying or getting a packet submitted, let me know and we'll work something out.

Is there a field update or have you heard back from a lot of teams at all ?

WashU, Drake, Iowa State, Iowa, Oklahoma, OKState, Tulsa, UTDallas, KState, Grinnell... anyone else I forgot ?

I saw that Harding wants to bring a team so that is good. I just want to make sure this is still going to happen for sure and an update on interested teams would be nice very soon.

Thanks.

I have not heard back from very many teams. Hopefully we'll get a couple more teams to sign up after the holidays. I think this is the same day as the OQBA's winter tournament, so we'll probably miss out on some of the Oklahoma teams. Regardless, we're definitely going to host this unless something drastic happens (we'll have a house team or two, and I think Paul may play as well).

OK, sounds good. The mystery team had thought of going to the Michigan site in case this didn't materialize but even if we have just 4-5 teams, it wouldn't be absolutely horrible as long as we get to hear and play on good questions.
