Early Fall Tournament (EFT) at Georgia Tech (10/14/17)

Post by JKHtay » Tue Sep 05, 2017 10:29 pm

The Georgia Institute of Technology will host a collegiate quizbowl tournament on Saturday, October 14, 2017. Note that this tournament was originally hosted on a Saturday, but that has changed. This tournament will use this year's EFT question set. This is a regular-minus difficulty tournament; more information on the question set and eligibility to play it can be found here.

Location and Time:
Games will take place in the Instructional Center building on the Georgia Tech campus. The opening meeting will start promptly at 9:00; rounds will start immediately thereafter.

Fees and Payment:
$120 base fee
$10 discount for each capable moderator with working laptop
$10 buzzer discount (maximum 3)
$10 travel discount for every 200 miles between your school and the Georgia Institute of Technology, as per Google Maps

The minimum fee is $50. Please bring payment on the day of the tournament in the form of cash or a check made out to the "Georgia Tech Academic Quizbowl Team". If we deem that your moderator is not capable or your buzzers are not working, you will not receive a discount.

Registration:
Please send me an e-mail at jhtay3@gatech.edu with the number of teams that you intend to bring and any buzzers or staffers that you will supply. If I do not respond within two days, feel free to send another e-mail.
