Re: The Grapes of Smath V - 4/18, DART

We will be capping the field at 1618 due to a smaller than expected number of staffers. Teams from the waitlist will be let off if anyone drops or if we get significantly more unaffiliateds. Sign up here if you are interested in reading and/or keeping score!

Re: The Grapes of Smath V - 4/18, DART

We would very much like to have 16 teams exactly (or 18 or 20 or 24). In-region schools are welcome to sign up or add a team up until Friday night! If we do not have enough in-region teams, we will admit out of region teams at our discretion to get an optimal field size.

Re: The Grapes of Smath V - 4/18, DART

Due to a local conflict affecting many schools in the NC Triangle, we are moving our competition to Sunday, April 18th. We would have moved to the 24th but wish to avoid conflicting with the SSNCT.

Re: The Grapes of Smath V - 4/18, DART

We should be able to gain platinum certification for PACE NSC - we had no issue doing so for our last tournament (Smath Creek Invitational).

We are allowing last minute signups, especially B/C teams. Please finalize the amount of teams you are bringing ASAP so that we can draw brackets. New schools are also welcome to sign up, although please do so by Thursday so that you can be sent the proper information in time.

Re: Smath Creek Invitational [1/9/21] [LONE STAR]

Please have your team name and a contact email on the spreadsheet by Saturday night if you plan to come! Rosters do not need to be finalized until the night before the tournament. 9 open spots remain - we'd really like to run a 24 team event but if not enough teams have signed up we'll probably just...

Re: Smath Creek Invitational [1/9/21] [LONE STAR] [NC/SC]

The staffer discount has been raised to $15. We haven't had as many club members (from NCSSM/Panther Creek Quiz Bowl) sign up to volunteer as we were hoping for, and $5 was simply an unreasonably low amount. If we're still short on staffers closer to the tournament date, we will allow unaffiliated p...

Re: Smath Creek Invitational [1/9/21] [LONE STAR] [NC/SC]

The minimum fee has been reduced to $35 in order to allow teams to take advantage of both discounts,.

Additionally, it should be noted that players will be required to keep their cameras on and do the PACE honor pledge.
