Halloween Academic Contest at Kenyon (HACK) - 10/31

Post by deserto »

On behalf of Kenyon College Quiz Bowl, I’m pleased to announce our intention to host the Halloween Academic Contest at Kenyon (HACK), a mirror of the regular-difficulty tournament CALI (info here: viewtopic.php?f=109&t=17412), on Saturday, Oct. 31 — costumes welcome! Kenyon is in Gambier, Ohio, an hour and 15 minutes northeast of Columbus.

The tournament will take place in Ascension Hall, a four-story Gothic building in the heart of campus. (Unfortunately, Ascension is not handicap-accessible.) Registration will be from 8:15-9 a.m., with the opening meeting starting promptly at 9. We will break for lunch after a preliminary round robin and re-bracket teams for the afternoon playoffs. We plan to wrap up the tournament by 6 p.m. Teams will have the opportunity to play a minimum of 10 matches over the course of the day.

Fee structure

$70 for a school’s first team
$50 for each subsequent team
- $10 per functional (i.e., at least eight units that light up and make noise) buzzer set
- $10 per experienced moderator
- $10 per 100 miles of one-way travel
Minimum fee per team: $40

(If your program is new to quiz bowl or under heavy financial constraints, we’d be glad to consider granting you a discount if it would enable you to attend. Just let me know!)

Payment — check or cash — is required on or before the day of the tournament. We will supply invoices upon request. Checks should be made out to Kenyon College; if you’d like to mail yours, send it to me at P.O. Box 1011, Gambier, OH 43022.

To register, please contact me at g.brisontrezise @ Google’s email service with your school’s name, number of teams, and whatever discounts you plan to claim.

Due to space constraints, we will be capping the field at 16 teams — first come, first serve.
