Toronto Fall Tournament (November 9, 2019)

Post by Protean »

The Ontario Quizbowl Association is pleased to announce the Toronto Fall Tournament, our first high school tournament of the school year. This tournament aims to be accessible to teams that are new to quizbowl while still providing a meaningful experience to those already familiar with the game. We will be using a Canadianized version of NAQT's IS-187A question set, which is at a similar difficulty level to past incarnations of this tournament and is suitable for first-time players.

Logistics and Registration

This tournament will take place on November 9, 2019 in Sidney Smith Hall on the University of Toronto’s St. George Campus. Please meet there by 9:00 AM, and the tournament will start at 9:30. We will break for lunch after round 5. The ONQBA will be providing a free pizza lunch to all participants, which will include a vegetarian option. Alternatively, players can bring their own lunch or money to buy lunch at the variety of food options around campus.

To register your school for this tournament, please email me at [email protected] with the number of teams your school will send, any discounts you would like to claim, and any dietary restrictions. I am also happy to field any questions or concerns via email or replies to this thread.

Please note that we require 48 hours' notice in the event of a team withdrawing.

Thank you and hope to see you there!

Fees and Discounts

$60 CAD for the first team from a school
$40 CAD for each subsequent team
-$10 CAD discount per working buzzer set (note that this is dependent on the # of sets, not the # of teams. That is, if a school sends two teams but one buzzer set, they will still only get the discount once)
