Tournament director Mike Uphoff has prepared a helpful document providing locations and prices for some of the main hotels in Manhattan as well as the locations of the major fast food restaurants: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GzJ ... sp=sharing.

John at MO Valley said they intend to come, but we have not heard from anyone else.

Edit: Tulsa just registered one team (10/3), and so has Oklahoma State (10/6).

Thanks everyone for coming to the tournament and making K-State's first tournament in five and a half years a success! We had a great time today, and we hope you all will consider coming the next time we host a tournament at K-State.

Below is the link to the stats for the tournament. If you notice any incongruities between the stats we have and what you remember, let me know and I'll get it updated as soon as possible. Since Johnson County decided to leave early, there are of course only five rounds of stats in the stats report, but we counted the afternoon rounds as forfeits for the purposes of determining which teams were awarded trophies.

1) What was Johnson County's problem? And 2) Did their check clear?

1. I don't know, probably just lack of motivation to continue playing.
2. It's an official check from the college itself, so there's no reason to worry about it.

Yeah, it was too bad that they went home early, but we were able to adapt and make it work. I was kind of surprised because they had a good chance of getting the second place trophy and a couple of book prizes, but I can understand why they may not have been having as much fun playing questions that were significantly harder than the questions they usually play on.

Perhaps in a less vocal manner.
