St. Louis Summer Open Interest Check

Post by Charbroil » Wed Apr 25, 2012 8:29 pm

We're hoping to run another informal summer open this year (like in the past two years) in St. Louis, again at WUSTL, so I wanted to see who might be interested and when.

Thus, if you are interested, please go to this link and indicate your interest with your name and the dates you'd be available.

We're not exactly sure which set we'd mirror if we do do this, so if anyone has any ideas for sets which haven't been posted yet which might be appropriate for a novice ~ novice+ college field, let me know at charleshang228@yahoo.com (or post here).

I would (and I also speak for Delano) be interested in us doing another trash side event after the main event.

Quite honestly, I don't think June 16th is a viable date, since that's when NASAT is. As for sets, I don't know about any college sets you could mirror during the summer, but there are a couple of high school sets like ATTACK (however, I don't know how appropriate that would be for the field) that haven't been mirrored in Missouri.

Sorry, I thought NASAT was a week earlier. I wouldn't be adverse to using a more difficult high school set, if there isn't a college one.

Just to note, the July 21st date is contingent on Chicago Open not being that day. My personal preference is July 14th or July 21st, depending on which day CO is.

I just realized that if stuff goes as planned, I would not be able to go on the 21st.

Charles, I don't know if you saw the thread, but I'm pretty sure CO is July 21.

Yeah, I know. So my preferred date for this would probably be the 14th.

Unless a more difficult set appears, we're probably going to use ATTACK for this; I've already contacted Adam Silverman and gotten approval.

I'd definitely be up for a trash mirror afterwards.

This is going to be the 14th; I'm going to put a detailed announcement (with payment information, etc.) in a couple of days. If you know you can staff, please let me know at charleshang228@yahoo.com.

On a slightly less important note, do we have a possible trash set to mirror at this tournament?

From what Charles told me, a CAHLFS mirror is highly possible.

I'm playing this and looking for teammates. Another trash tournament afterwards sounds excellent as well.

If none of them renege out later, I'll be playing this with fellow rising juniors Enze Chen, Jialin Ding, and Kisan Thakkar.

As things stand I'll be playing this with Itamar Naveh-Benjamin, Jacob Billingsley, and Dan O'Connor.

There is a group of current and former Oakville students set for this tournament who would also probably be willing to play trash.

Tentatively, Charlie Beard and I will be playing this together. I've asked a third player, but there is still room for a fourth. Contact me if interested.

I'm probably available to staff the academic end of things and am DEFINITELY playing the trash.

Will trash be immediately following STLO?

Yes.
To clarify, we'll probably get pizza (since I don't think anyone wants to play from 1 to 9 PM without food), but we'll have that in the DUC and hopefully only take ~half an hour.

When will the schedule+costs for both tournaments be finalized?

I'm offering myself up as a free agent. Specialties of mine include physics, late 90's - early 00's boy bands, and anything even peripherally related to the show Burn Notice. Anybody want to join up?

To clarify, the only aspects of the schedule that still need finalization is the format (ex. Round Robin, rebracketing, etc.), which depends on the exact number of teams. Broadly speaking, you're definitely going to play 8-10 games before 4 and then have a roughly half hour lunch break before the trash event.
