ANNOUNCEMENT: Penn Bowl Trash Mirror at McMaster 3/5/11

Post by CraigM » Sun Feb 13, 2011 6:55 pm

Hey,

McMaster University will be hosting a mirror of Penn Bowl Trash (main site being held on Feb. 13th) on March 5th, 2011. The logistics of the tournament will be forthcoming, including pricing and location, but if you and your team are interested in attending please respond to this thread to let us know.

Thanks

Details:

The tournament will be held as planned on March 5th, 2011 at McMaster starting as close to 9 am as possible. Please arrive accordingly as we would like to have the tournament done at a fashionable time.

The tournament will be in The Michael G. DeGroote Center for Learning and Discovery, which is where we've hosted the last few tournaments we've held.
(the same building as TERP, ACF Fall, and The Jeff Goldblum Tournament.)

MDCL is south of the student center, and is the modern building attached to the hospital by 2 bridges.

http://www.mcmaster.ca/welcome/campusmap.cfm

The Student Center is #51 on this map, and MDCL is #52.

Fees and Discounts:

Base fee: $100/team
Buzzer discount: -$5/usable set
Moderator discount: -$5/moderator
Travel Discount: -$10 if over 200 miles travelled by Google Maps

Field (tentative):
McMaster: x2(x3?)
Guelph: x2
Jay Misuk et al: x1
Centennial HS: X1
Ron et al: x1

Please confirm ASAP as we would like to get a schedule firmed up.

Thanks

Note:
There will be midterms taking place in MDCL the day of the tournament so while attending please try to keep hallway noise to a minimum.

I am 95% sure we could get an RIT or RIT + recent grads team there.

I will talk to the UWO group about this, but lacking their interest, I am potentially interested as a free-agent or solo player. Once the logistics are worked out, I can confirm.

Based on a polling of the club, Guelph should be able to bring two teams out to this one!

Craig will update the original post soon, but the tournament will be held in MDCL, which is the building where the last few tournaments we've held were. Fee structure will look like this:

Base fee: $100
Buzzer discount: -$5
Moderator: -$5

I'd like to register as a free agent for this, as it doesn't seem as though anyone else from UWO has interest. If there's anyone coming up who's passing through London, I'm happy to chip in for gas, otherwise, I will have to look into Greyhound opportunities.

I'm posting for the Centennial CVI team. They're interested in making a trip out from Guelph for this, despite being in high school. I just know this from the Ontario HS trivia group on Facebook. I expect that they would want to send a team, and might even post here soon.

I go to Centennial and we are pretty certain on sending a team. We also have a buzzer system, and could probably find a moderator.

Just as a follow-up, I have joined Jay Misuk's team.

What times (roughly) are we looking to start and end? I'm looking into Greyhound information, and there's a bus that will get me to the Mac Campus (wherever it is that buses go) at 9:20, and another that will take me back to London which leaves at 6:25. Will this be an issue?

I don't think starting the tournament at 9:30ish will be an issue. As for where the bus will drop you off, it will be behind Mary E. Keyes Residence on the west end of campus. If you look at the map, it is building number 50 (with a red arrow near it). From there, the walk to MDCL (Building #52) should take no longer than 5 minutes. If you'd like a phone number to call incase you get lost, feel free to e-mail me and I'll send it along.

Unfortunately, RIT/alums won't be able to make it.

I am not coming with a school or affiliate, I am going to come with a few friends, which I guess designates me as Ron et. al.

So we at Centennial CVI in Guelph would like to enter the tournament. What do we have to do to enter?

@CVI:
Just that. We already had you penned in as coming in our field so just show up at McMaster at around 9 am on Saturday. Bring buzzers if you have them. If you need help finding the building feel free to contact one of us at McMaster Quizbowl.

Just a last reminder that we want all teams to show up by 9 am tomorrow morning at MDCL so we can get through the administrative stuff we need to and get the tournament underway by 9:30. Let us know if you need any last minute directions.
