Terrapin @ MIT (3/2/19)

Post by naneekeralc » Wed Feb 06, 2019 12:18 pm

Hello, everyone! I am pleased to announce the MIT's mirror of Terrapin 30, which will take place on Saturday, March 2, 2019.

LOCATION AND SCHEDULE: The tournament will take place on MIT's campus in Cambridge, MA. Teams should report to room 34-101 (located in Building 34) in the morning for registration and opening announcements. We ask that teams arrive between 8:30 and 8:45 in the morning for registration; the opening meeting will start as soon as all teams have arrived, with games beginning immediately following the meeting's conclusion. A campus map can be found here.

GETTING TO MIT: MIT is easily accessible via the Boston T system by taking the Red Line to the Kendall/MIT stop. We recommend teams avoid driving if possible, as parking is very difficult to find on the MIT campus. A list of parking locations on campus can be found here. Please note that West Garage no longer exists.

Each team can have up to six players on its roster, but only four players may play at any one time. Schools planning to bring seven or more players should register a second team.

QUESTION SET: More information about Terrapin 30 can be found in the global announcement.

FEES: The registration fees for this tournament are as follows:

+$120: base fee per team
-$10: each volunteer staffer provided by a school.
-$5: each buzzer set provided by a school. In order to receive this discount, the buzzer system must have at least 8 fully functional buzzers.
-$10: for teams traveling in excess of 200 miles one-way, as determined by the distance Google Maps provides between MIT and your school.

The minimum fee for a school is $0.

PAYMENT: Teams may pay either in advance or on the day of the tournament. Either cash or check is acceptable; please make checks out to "MIT Quiz Bowl Team." If your school requires an invoice prior to payment, please let us know as soon as possible.

REGISTRATION: Teams will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The field cap is initially 16 teams and will likely be increased as staff become available. Once the cap is filled, new teams will enter a waitlist and be added to the field if registered teams drop.

In order to register for this tournament, please email ALL of the following information to me at clkeenan [AT] mit [DOT] edu:
1. School name
2. Number of teams you are registering
3. The cell phone number of someone who will be traveling with the team.
4. The number of buzzers and staffers you are intending to bring.

Although expressions of interest in this forum are appreciated, the only official channel for registration is to email the above information to me. Registering teams should receive an email of confirmation within a day. You are not registered for this tournament until you receive an email from me indicating that you are.

Please feel free to contact me at clkeenan [AT] mit [DOT] edu if you have any questions or concerns about the tournament. We look forward to hosting your team for an exciting day of quizbowl!
