Stevenson Memorial Tournament at WUSTL - 3/24/18

Postby Charbroil » Mon Jan 29, 2018 10:45 am

The Washington University Quiz Bowl team will be hosting a mirror of the 2018 Stevenson Memorial Tournament on March 24th, 2018.

I, Charles Hang, will be Tournament Director. To register, or if you have any questions, please email our team at washuqb@gmail.com.

Eligibility
The original tournament announcement wrote: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 us to play the set (by contacting [Young Fenimore Lee] at youngflee99@gmail.com), and if granted will be able to play at a mirror. Otherwise, they will not be allowed to play.

High schoolers are exempt from the usual requirement that players and teams play under their actual personal and team names. High schoolers are also welcome to form open teams, contingent on my approval.

Time

Tournament check-in will begin at 8:30 AM, morning announcements will be at 8:50, and play will begin at 9:00.

Location

The tournament will probably take place in Eads Hall (Building 31 here). Due to construction on our campus, we advise that you park at the Simon Lot here.

1/ The number of teams you will bring
2/ The number of buzzers you will bring
3/ The names of your players on each team

5/ A cell phone number for someone attending the tournament so that I can reach you the day of the event in case of emergencies

Buzzer systems: -$5 each
Staffers: -$10 each
Travel: -$10 for every 200 mi. traveled

Checks should be made out to "Washington University Quiz Bowl;" we can also take cash payments, but greatly prefer payment by check.

Questions

The tournament will be use the Stevenson Memorial Tournament set, a spiritual successor to past years' Minnesota Undergraduate Tournament (MUT) sets and last year's Eisenhower Memorial Tournament set. Past MUT sets and the EMT (EMT) set can be found here.
