Wash U will be hosting a mirror of MFT on October 5th, 2013. This tournament is written by the Michigan team and is supposed to be Fall/Fall-plus difficulty like last year's Illinois Fall Tournament. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
Charles Hang will be TD'ing and will post a full announcement in the main forums at some point. We'll most likely have rooms in Eads Hall, where we held all of our college tournaments last year. Hopefully everyone will be free this weekend to play some relatively difficulty-controlled quiz bowl.
I, Charles Hang, will be serving as the Tournament Director. To register for the tournament, or if you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com and CC our team account at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tournament check-in will begin at 8:30 AM, morning announcements will be at 9:00, and play will begin by 9:15. The entire tournament (including awards and playoffs) should be over by 6:00 PM. Each team will be guaranteed ten or eleven games, depending on the final schedule, and there will be finals as necessary to determine the champion.
The tournament will almost certainly be taking place in Eads Hall (Building 32 on the map here). Any of the major parking lots on the map should be fine.
To register, please e-mail me at email@example.com and CC our team account at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
1/ The Number of teams you will be bringing
2/ The Number of buzzers you will be bringing
3/ The number of players you will have, as well as their names.
4/ The number of staff (moderators and scorekeepers) you will be bringing
Please feel free to share this announcement with any schools that you think would be interested in attending.
Base fee: $100
$5 off the base fee for schools per working buzzer system provided
$10 off the base fee for schools per competent staffer*
$10 off the base fee for schools for each 200 miles traveled, as determined by Google Maps.
Showing up late without getting in touch with me: +$20 penalty.
*To be defined as an individual capable of either reading a 20 tossup, 20 bonus match in under 30 minutes or capable of scorekeeping such a match.
Please make payment by check to "Washington University Academic Team." We can also take cash payments, but greatly prefer payment by check. If you have any further questions about payment, please contact our team account.

More information about MFT, including information about optional packet submission, can be found here.From the MFT Announcement wrote: The set is intended to be "regular minus" or "fall plus" difficulty, akin to the EFT or IFT tournaments of the past. The final distribution of each packet will be:
4/4 Literature (1/1 American, 1/1 British, 1/1 Euro, 1/1 World/Mixed)
4/4 History (1/1 American, 2/2 Euro including British Commonwealth and Ancient, 1/1 World)
4/4 Science (1/1 Biology, 1/1 Chemistry, 1/1 Physics, 1/1 Other Science)
3/3 RMP (1/1 Religion, 1/1 Mythology, 1/1 Philosophy)
3/3 FA (1/1 Painting, 1/1 Music, 1/1 Other FA with a roughly equal split of auditory and visual)
1/1 Social Science
Which is basically the ACF distribution. Tossups will be powermarked during editing.
