Harvard College Tournament

2019 — Cambridge, MA/US

Longer invitation forthcoming. Key details for now:

November 2, 2019 - November 4, 2019.

We are using the Marriott Newton, about 15 mins drive from campus. $130/night. Booking link available here: Booking Link for Marriott Newton.

Harvard now has several parking options near the yard if you prefer to drive. If there is sufficient interest, we might organize a shuttle, but we suspect it will still be cheaper to use ride-sharing.

Eight preliminary rounds, clearing to octafinals. 2:15 decision time for prelims; 2:30 for elims. Brackets will be broken in elimination rounds, with the lower seed moving up one spot. 

We are working to get more rooms from the college, but for now the field is capped at 80 entries. Three entries per school, then teams are waitlisted. 

Fees will be $80 a person. We will provide breakfast and lunch on Saturday; breakfast, lunch, and a late dinner banquet on Sunday; and breakfast for participants on Monday.

Gary Larson will run tab.

Standard judging obligations, 4 rounds per team entered. All judges are obligated through the octafinals on Monday morning.

We look forward to hosting you again in Cambridge.
