Scarlet Knight Fall @ Rutgers University (9/21/2019)

Post by skyeblu » Sun Jul 21, 2019 10:38 pm

Hey everyone!

Rutgers University-New Brunswick will once again be hosting the Scarlet Knight Fall Invitational Tournament on 9/21/19. The tournament will be run on NAQT IS-185A.

Field Size: There is a soft field cap of 24 teams, which will increase as we get more staffer and buzzer commitments. We would love to run both a novice and a standard field, but we will only do so if there is enough interest to ensure that both divisions have enough teams to run smoothly. Therefore, we will ask teams when registering whether they are doing so for novice or standard in order to ensure that as many schools get to participate as possible. If enough teams sign up for both divisions then we will split the field as such. The first three teams for each school that registers will automatically be put into the field. Subsequent teams will be added to a waitlist and may be added as room opens. Teams themselves will be limited to rosters of six players.

Registration and Fees:
Base fee: $80 for your first team, $75 for additional teams
Buzzer discount: -$5
Staffer discount: -$10
The minimum fee per team is $50.

To register, please fill out this form.

Feel free to email us at rutgersacademicteam@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Payment: All teams must pay by the day of the tournament. Teams that do not will be charged a $25 penalty fee. We will accept either cash or checks; no other form of payment will be accepted. All checks must be made out to “Rutgers University Academic Team”. If your school requires an invoice for payment, please get in touch with us at the email address above.

Location: The tournament will be held in Scott Hall (43 College Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ) on the College Avenue Campus of Rutgers-New Brunswick.

Transportation and Parking: Teams driving to the tournament who wish to park on campus must purchase a $5 parking permit (permits can only be purchased online on weekdays from 8am to 5pm) and use the parking deck at 622 George Street, New Brunswick, NJ. Alternatively, teams can park in these off-campus facilities provided by the City of New Brunswick for a slightly higher fee. Scott Hall is also within walking distance of the New Brunswick train station on NJ Transit’s Northeast Corridor Line.

Schedule: Registration will begin in Scott Hall at 8am and all teams should arrive at 8:30am at the latest. There will be opening announcements at 8:45am, and we hope to begin Round 1 as close to 9am as possible. The exact format will be determined by the final field size, but in any case, teams will be placed in preliminary brackets for morning rounds and then reseeded into playoff and consolation brackets in the afternoon. All teams will be guaranteed at least ten rounds in total.

Food: While we will not be providing breakfast or lunch, there are all sorts of options for food within a few minutes’ walking distance.

We hope to see all of you in September!
