Stevenson Memorial Tournament (SMT) @ UChicago (5/12)

Postby Emperor Pupienus » Thu Mar 08, 2018 3:06 pm

The University of Chicago is delighted to announce that we will be hosting a mirror of Stevenson Memorial Tournament on Saturday, May 12th, 2018. I, Jason Zhou, will be the tournament director.

Details:
SMT is regular minus difficulty, and more information about the tournament can be found in the global announcement.

Eligibility:
The eligibility policy is similar to past years’ MUT and EMT. Only undergraduate and high school students can play this tournament. "Undergraduate" in this case does not follow the traditional ACF definition--fifth-year (or greater) undergraduates with no bachelor's-level degree are still eligible to play. Less-experienced grad students (i.e. grad students who have not played a tournament before this school year, with slight exceptions granted at our discretion) can request permission directly from to play the set, and if granted will be able to play at a mirror. Otherwise, they will not be allowed to play.

The tournament will be preliminarily capped at 12 teams.

Cost:
$120 per team

Discounts:
Buzzer systems with at least eight functional buzzers: -$5 each
Buzzer systems with fewer than eight buzzers: -$0 each
Competent staffers: -$10 each No maximum.
Laptop: -$5 each Maximum 1 per team.
Travel: -$10 per 200 miles traveled one way

Registration:
Please register by contacting me at jasonzhouw@uchicago.edu

This is a reminder that this is happening in about 2 weeks. We'd definitely welcome more registrations, so if any teams are still interested in playing, please let me know!

Congratulations to Chicago A (Samir Khan, Alston Boyd, Jessica Sweeney, and Mack Muldofsky) for winning the tournament by defeating Chicago B (Matthew Lehmann, Halle Friedman, and Francesco Scivittaro) in two games of a disadvantaged final. Thanks to all of the teams for coming, and many thanks to the staffers for their time!!

Complete stats are available now.

I'm happy to say that my quizbowl career has simultaneously begun and ended with an incredible performance as part of the exalted "Chicago A" team. After years of basically being a quizbowl groupie, I was able to walk on to perhaps the most competitive and famous team in the circuit. Clearly my reputation as a specialist of 21st century contemporary TV shows has preceded me. Anyway, to all my friends who have tried to become a part of Chicago A over the years, I'll just say - keep trying. If you need any tips or information on how to carry Alston Boyd through nine rounds, I'm always around to talk, I am very busy with scholarship offers though and people trying to get me to interview at top law schools, etc.
