For planning the scioly.org meetup during the Swap Meet. Unfortunately there is basically zero info at present about the facilities involved, so we will have to wait until the tournament website finally gets some updates.

I’m interested. Also, weren’t there ultimate tournaments in the past?

Do we have someone volunteering to organize them? ;)

The swap meet seems to be in the Aux Gym. However, I have no idea where the entrances or other landmarks in the room are so I'm not sure what would work as a meeting location.

Alright, I've talked to my team and we definitely have interest in doing this. I'm happy to organize it, but I don't want to do anything I'm not allowed to. So first;
- Am I allowed to organize this, or would CSU / SOINC have an issue with it?
- Also, is there someone else who normally organizes it? Because again, I don't want to impede.
- Is it normally on Thursday or Friday?

1) They've been cooperative in the past. I'd recommend emailing Steve Lovaas about it when you get a chance, once you've thought of a location that might work to make sure it's free.
2) There hasn't been a successful tournament in most recent years because of a lack of people willing to organize it.
3) Friday afternoon since a lot of people won't be there for most of Thursday (typically around 1-3 PM or such).

You can find some past threads in the old Nationals forums, those should be helpful.

Update: An Ultimate tournament is a possibility, but intramural fields cost $35 per field per hour. I don't think many teams would be willing to pay to cover the cost (and introducing money into the equation will make things a lot messier) so I asked him about free options instead.

Ok, for now I'm going to assume that the Swap Meet will be in the Aux Gym. Here's a map of the area. I've marked out four locations for the meetup, in descending order of convenience, in case some of them are blocked off or something. #1 is the current location, pending updates on Friday if that space turns out to be, for example, filled with piles of tables or something.

If swap meet isn't in the Aux Gym I'll update the map.
