Sun God Invitational @ Rutgers University (11/10/18)

Post by The Billiards Fool » Thu Oct 11, 2018 7:20 pm

Hello! I am happy to announce that Rutgers University (New Brunswick) will be hosting a mirror of Sun God Invitational on November 10, 2018.

Location
The tournament will take place (as of now) at Scott Hall. The address for the building is 43 College Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901. A searchable map of the campus can be found at this link. Parking is available in a deck on Wall Street, though it is cheapest parking option is to purchase a parking pass. An instructional video is located here.

If you need any help with travel to Rutgers, parking, or housing email me!

Entry Fees and Discounts:
Base Fee: $120 per team
Buzzers: -$5 per each working buzzer system
Staffing: -$15 per competent staffer
Travel Discount : -$15 per 200 miles traveled (as determined by distance between schools on Google maps)
New Team Discount: -$20 for any team that played fewer than two tournaments last year.

Payment can be made in cash or via a check addressed to “Rutgers University Academic Team.” We expect payment the day of. If that is not possible please let us know as soon as you become aware of an issue. Any team that needs an invoice in advance should email me as soon as they would like one.

To register please fill out the form here. Just fill it out once per school.

Field Size
We are setting the field cap at 20 teams for now. We will look into expanding if necessary as we get a better idea of own staffing/buzzer numbers (including outside staffers).

Eligibility
This is a closed collegiate tournament. High School teams may play but only with their fellow schoolmates and not as a chimera team.

Food
There are plenty of lunch options in the vicinity of Scott Hall. We will provide a more detailed guide to the RU area in the logistics emails.

Please direct all questions to rutgersacademicteam@gmail.com.

We hope to see you on November 10!

EDIT: Clarifying registration information

Stats will be kept live-ish here: http://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/53 ... ound_2%29/

(this will exclude Round 5, which will be posted after scoring prizes are given out because suspense is fun)

Congratulations to Columbia (Rafael Krichevsky, Jackson Painter, Julia Tong, and Gerhart Hinkle) on winning Sun God @ Rutgers yesterday. Full stats can be found here.

Thank you to everyone who came out and staffed (shoutout to all of the wonderful outside staffers: Caroline Mao, Aaron Cohen, Samuel Kao, Jason Golfinos, and Rahul Rao-Pothuraju).
