WORKSHOP at New York University (May 2, 2020)

Post by _nestorius »

Quiz Bowl at NYU is pleased to announce a high school-only mirror of WORKSHOP to be held on May 2nd, 2020! You can find more information about the question set here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=22892.

This tournament is a platinum-certified qualifier for PACE NSC. The top 25% of teams in the field will qualify for PACE NSC.

REGISTRATION
Based on room availability, the field is currently capped at 15 teams. To register, email Theresa Nyowheoma (the tournament director) at theresa.nyowheoma at NYU's domain name (nyu.edu). Be sure to include the number of teams you will be bringing and any discounts you will be claiming, as well as contact information for at least one person who will be in attendance.

FEES
Base Fee: $85/team
Buzzer Discount: -$5 per complete, functioning buzzer set
Staffer Discount: -$10 for a competent staffer
Travel Discount: -$10 per 200 miles traveled per Google Maps

Minimum of $50 per team. Payment must be made on the day of the tournament by cash or check. Please make any checks out to "New York University," with "Quiz Bowl at NYU" in the subject line.

LOGISTICS
The tournament will take place in NYU's Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life (GCASL), located at 238 Thompson St, New York, NY 10012. We will begin registration at 9:00am and begin games around 9:20am.

We would generally recommend you take some form of public transportation to get here, if possible. If you have any questions about the best ways to get here, or about navigating the NYC Subway, do not hesitate to ask us. If you drive, there are several parking options in the vicinity of GCASL, but be prepared to shell out some money for a spot.

I need not say that food options for lunch and dinner are extremely plentiful here in Manhattan. If you want recommendations, ask anyone affiliated with NYU during the tournament.

FIELD (1/15)
Ridgewood High School (1 team/1 buzzer/0 staffers)

Finally, feel free to email Theresa at the above address or respond to this post with any questions or concerns!
