VOLDEMORT at Virginia Tech (10/29/16) [SCOP Novice]

Post by EricChang5 » Fri Aug 19, 2016 1:12 pm

Hello all!

Virginia Tech is pleased to announce the second rendition of Virginia's Ostensibly Likable, Demonstratively Entertaining, Mostly Organized Rookie Tournament, to be held on October 29, 2016.

Location
The tournament will take place in New Classroom Building located on 1455 Perry Street. A map of campus can be accessed here.

Question Set
The tournament will be a mirror of SCOP Novice 7, which was graciously provided by Kristen Strey and company.

Registration
In order to register for this tournament, please contact Eric Chang via email at (gceric5@vt.edu) with coach's contact information, including a phone number where the coach can be reached on the day of the tournament, the number of teams, and any expected discounts. On the day of the tournament, registration will begin at 8:30, and matches will be starting at 9:00.

Fees
Base fee: $60
Working buzzer set: -$5
Competent Moderator with laptop: -$10
Traveling over 150 miles one-way: -$10
New to Quizbowl: -$10

Team Size and Eligibility
Teams are limited to six players, and only four can play at any one time. If a school wishes to field more than six players, they must register an additional team. As usual, our only restriction is that players who have participated in NAQT, HSNCT, or PACE NSC must apply to play. We will most likely be lenient on the whole if we believe players can benefit from the tournament.

Format
The field will be initially capped at 20 teams, but we may expand this if resources allow. Teams registering after the field as been set will be placed on a waiting list. We will guarantee at least 10 rounds of competition for every team.

Costumes
Following the tradition set from last year, we continue to encourage teams and coaches to come dressed up in costumes! However, we do ask that participants refrain from wearing masks of any sort.

Please feel free to contact Eric Chang (gceric5@vt.edu) with any questions regarding the tournament.

Thank you, and we hope to see you in Blacksburg!
