MLK Mirror at Truman State University (January 23, 2016)

Post by HoustonR. » Mon Nov 30, 2015 3:23 pm

Hello everyone!

Truman State University is pleased to announce that we will be mirroring Michigan’s MLK tournament on January 23, 2016. Other details, such as the distribution and the difficulty, can be found in the MAIN ANNOUNCEMENT.

Tournament Fees:
$120 Base Fee
-$15 Staffer Discounts
-$10 Laptop Discount (Reduces need for physical packets)
-$10 Per 200 miles traveled (one-way as determined by Google Maps)
-$5 Buzzer Discount per each working buzzer system you bring (this must allow for 8 players to play at once to qualify for the discount)

I highly encourage teams to bring moderators,buzzers, and laptops since that will help the tournament to run faster. We will provide staffers with a lunch and donuts in the morning. If you are paying with a check, please be sure to make it out to “Academic Competition Organization.” Also let me know if you need an invoice to have your business office pay us.

Logistics:
This tournament is going to be held in Baldwin Hall Little Theater.

To register, please email me at hr2662@truman.edu or Vice President Selena Montes at snm2223@truman.edu with the subject line “MLK at Truman” and tell me: 1. How many teams, 2. buzzers, 3. moderators you will be bringing, and 4. If and how many laptops you can provide.

We will continue to update this forum as new teams sign up and if you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to email us and let us know. I hope to see everyone in Kirksville on January 23rd!

Alrighty folks with our 7 registered teams and 1 Truman House Team we're set to go. All teams should have received a logistics emails earlier this afternoon so be sure to reply to that with your roster and fill out the cost calculation spreadsheet so you can know your bill.

Remember that check in will begin at 8:00am on Saturday morning in Baldwin Hall Room 251. Can't wait to see everyone!
