We are hosting Round 1 of the 2013 Presidential Cage Match as a GoogleHangout. This is largely for GMU History Alum and other select invited personnel… I will, however, post results on the Blog.
Bracket is public today! Download here: 2013 Bracket (.ppt) and 2013 Bracket (.pdf).
If you want to play, fill in your bracket and get it back to me by Thursday, 9pm. Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note, this is a temporary address. (email me if you want to make it in person, I will send you my address!)
Round 1 will be a speed round. All Presidents battling will get a 15 min round. Judging will be computed from points made and detracted from people in the room, on the HangOut and on Facebook. I will compute the points and trust me… the quality will deteriorate through the night.
Region competition will proceed as follows, 3 matches each:
My best guess… if we start at 7pm, round 1 is complete by 10 pm. (+/-) The judge (me) reserves the right to extend lively debate or call a match early for lack of participation.
Scorekeeping will be high-tech… via whiteboard at my house… and recorded accordingly.
More to follow!!!
