Triton Pre-Nationals Tournament

Postby Taiwan Wren-Babbler » Sun Apr 30, 2017 10:24 pm

Quiz Bowl at UCSD is pleased to announce the Triton Pre-Nationals Tournament at UC San Diego on Saturday, 13 May 2017. We aspire to make Triton Spring excellent preparation for both HSNCT and NSC!

DATE / TIME: The tournament will be held on Saturday, 13 May 2017. Check-in will begin at 8:00 AM, and matches will begin promptly at 9:00 AM. Teams will be required to attend a mandatory informational meeting at 8:45 AM.

LOCATION: The tournament will be held on the campus of UC San Diego (9500 Gilman Dr, La Jolla, CA 92093), in either the Humanities and Social Sciences (H&SS) building or Center Hall. More information will be provided closer to the tournament date.

TOURNAMENT DETAILS: This tournament will be a single division tournament run on the NAQT Division II Intercollegiate Championship Tournament (ICT)! This set's difficulty is shade above HSNCT! To further replicate the nationals experience, we'll be running games in two timed 9 minute halves. However, to guarantee teams hear an adequate number of questions, if a round ends with fewer than 20 questions read, we will read to 20! Thus, every game will have a minimum of 20 questions read and a maximum of 24 read.

The current field cap for this tournament is 8 teams. Due to the small field size, each school will be limited to one (1) team. Additional teams will be waitlisted until 9 May 2017.

Our registration fee is as follows:

Base fee: $100

-$40 if school has played less than three (3) tournaments since 13 May 2015
-$10 per experienced moderator (at tournament director (TD) discretion)
-$5 per working buzzer system (at TD discretion; must accommodate at least eight players)
-$5 per 50 miles travelled one way, according to Google Maps

There is a minimum fee of $50 for all schools.

Teams must register for the tournament by emailing ucsdqb@gmail.com with (a) the school name; (b) the division in which a team is being registered; (c) the number of buzzer systems, if any; (d) the number of staffers, if any; and (e) a contact name and phone number. Due to the small field size, we anticipate the tournament field to fill rapidly.

INQUIRIES: Any inquiries can be resolved by emailing the tournament director at ucsdqb@gmail.com.

Thank you and we hope to see you at our tournament!
