SCOP Novice Mirror at University of Connecticut

Post by Proteus »

The University of Connecticut is pleased to announce its mirror of SCOP Novice 4 on Saturday, October 26, 2013. This tournament will be directed by me, Helen Fu.

Eligibility
Eligibility is restricted to players in their first or second year of high school quiz bowl (not including single subject tournaments such as NHBB or Science Bowl) and who have not attended PACE NSC or NAQT HSNCT.

Registration
Email iqconn at gmail dot com "SCOP mirror registration" as the subject to register. Please include the name of your school and a phone number which we can contact on the day of the tournament, in addition to the number of teams, buzzers, and experienced moderators.

Tournament Format
The tournament will follow standard ACF rules of untimed rounds consisting of 20 tossups and 20 three-part, 30 point bonuses, with neg-fives and 15-point powers, but no bounce-backs on bonuses.

The tournament will consist of bracketed round-robin prelims and rebracketed round-robin playoffs, the details of which are to be decided and announced after the field is determined. Teams will play between 9 and 10 rounds, and ties will be played off, packets permitting.

Registration and breakfast will be ongoing from 8:00 am to 8:45 am, with the first round beginning at approximately 9:00 am and the tournament ending at around 5:30 pm.

Question Set
The SCOP set is novice difficulty, and more information about the set can be found at viewtopic.php?f=109&t=14514

Fee Structure
$60 for the first team from a school
$50 for each subsequent team
-$5 for each working buzzer system
-$10 for each moderator

Further discounts (such as for travel) can be negotiated on a case-by-case basis with the tournament director.

We prefer payment through a check made out to IQConn on the day of the tournament.

Field (Teams/Buzzers/Staff)
Woodland Regional (2/1/0)
AMSA (1/1/1)
Abby Kelley Foster (2/1/1)

Is there a difference between the Woodland Regional High School (CT) and the Woodland High School (also CT) that is going to SCOP at Hunter?

The schools are the same. When UConn posted that they would mirror the SCOP tournament Woodland emailed that they would drop out of Hunter because it would be much easier for us to travel to UConn. They may not have posted the change as of yet.

I've updated the field. If all goes as planned, we can definitely guarantee ten rounds for every team. There's still room, though--if other teams are interested they can definitely sign up.
