Stevenson Memorial Tournament (SMT) @ Virginia Tech 3/31/18

Post by EricChang5 » Wed Jan 24, 2018 2:04 pm

Hello all!

Virginia Tech is pleased to announce our mirror of SMT, to be held on March 31, 2018!

Location
The tournament will take place in McBryde Hall located on 225 Stanger St. A map of campus can be accessed here.

Question Set
The tournament will be running a mirror of Stevenson Memorial Tournament, which was graciously provided by Young Fenimore Lee. More information on the set can be located here.

Eligibility
This set is limited to undergraduate students and potentially high school students. If you have any questions about eligibility, please contact me ASAP. Some graduate students may be allowed but will need prior permission from myself and the editors of SMT.

Registration
In order to register for this tournament, please fill out this registration form and then contact Eric Chang via email at (gceric5@vt.edu) to confirm your registration. On the day of the tournament, registration will begin at 8:15, and matches will be starting at 9:00.

Fees
Base fee: $110
Working buzzer set: -$5
Staffer: -$10
Traveling over 200 miles one-way: -$10
New to "Quizbowl": -$50

Team Size
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.

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.

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!
