The base fee for teams is $120. Several discounts are available:

• $5 off for each working buzzer set.

Additional information:
Driving directions: Kirksville is located on Hwy. 63 about 1.5 hours north of Columbia, MO. Driving time from the St. Louis or Kansas City is about 3 hours; roughly 5-6 hours from the Chicago area. The address to the university is 100 E Normal, Kirksville MO, 63501. Parking and hotel accommodations are plentiful.
Food: There are various options for breakfast and lunch on and off campus. We are considering providing a lunch to interested players at a cost of $3 -- this will be something along the lines of "build your own tacos." Let me know if this is something you would be interested in.
Payment: Please make checks payable to "Academic Competition Organization." Cash will also be accepted.

If you are interested in attending, please post here or email me at kar1111@truman.edu with the number of teams, buzzers, moderators, etc. that you will be bringing.

We hope to draw a large field to Missouri's "North Star" this year - see you on November 6th!

If you're in need of additional staff, let me know so I can make the trip up there. I always jump at the opportunity to help out my alma mater.
