University of Toronto Novice Tournament -- Dec. 5th, 2015

Post by Calculus? » Sat Sep 12, 2015 10:29 am

Hello Canada!

The University of Toronto Academic Trivia Club is very excited to announce the U of T Novice Tournament, happening on December 5th, 2015. The tournament will be a mirror of NAQT set IS-149A.

Logistics

The tournament will be held in Sidney Smith Hall (100 St. George Street) here on the U of T St. George campus. Rooms will be announced once a field is established. Due to exorbitant fees required by the university, this tournament will have a hard field cap of 7 teams. The tournament will begin at 9:30 am, please try to arrive at 9:00 for registration. We will not be providing lunch, but there are numerous options for food on and around campus.

Fees

The base fee for this tournament will be $50 per team. We will offer a $5 discount per working buzzer set (one per team). Please note that a "working buzzer set" must include 8 functioning buzzers and a power cord. We will also offer a $10 travel discount if your team traveled more than 200 km one way.

We would prefer fees to be paid in cash, but if necessary, a cheque made out to "University of Toronto Academic Trivia Club" will be accepted. Fees should be paid before the start of the tournament.

Registration

To register for this tournament, please email me at [meghan DOT torchia AT mail DOT utoronto DOT ca] with the number of teams you are bringing and any discounts you would like to claim. I will send you a confirmation email back.

If you have any questions or comments about this tournament, feel free to post them here or email me. This promises to be a great event, and I hope to see you in December!

Will there be any "Canadianization" of this set as there was with Lisgar Novice and MacIntro this year?

Yes, there will be some Canadian content added to this set. Not sure of the distribution ATM.

Thanks to everyone who came out to this! I hope you all had a good time, and congrats to East Scarborough A on their win (and tiny, tiny trophy). Big thanks to all the staffers as well who helped make this run smoothly.
