Saturnalia HS General Mirror

Post by entropy »

The editors and writers of Saturnalia will run an online Discord mirror of the high school version of the set sometime in May. This is a general mirror: it will be closed but not region-restricted. I, Karan Gurazada, will be the tournament director. We have not yet decided on a date for this tournament; if you are interested in playing or staffing, please fill out this date poll.

This mirror is intended for teams who cannot attend their local Saturnalia mirror or do not have a local Saturnalia mirror. We strongly encourage teams who are able to attend their local mirror to do so. A list of local mirrors can be found here.

Saturnalia is a hard ["regs+" difficulty] high school set; we suggest teams only register if they are ready for a challenge. More information about the set can be found here.

We will divide the field into a competitive and a standard division. The competitive division will be open to all teams that satisfy NAQT’s high school eligibility rules and is intended to cater to nationally competitive teams. The standard division will be open only to NAQT-eligible teams not ranked in the top 100 of the most recent Groger rankings, though teams may apply for an exception. We reserve the right to ask teams to switch divisions or to refuse their registration for any reason, including but not limited to skill level or local mirror availability.

We welcome outside staffers and encourage interested individuals to indicate their ability by responding to the above date poll. We have not yet decided how much we will pay outside staffers.

The tournament date will be chosen based on the responses to the above date poll by March 8th, 2021. Please fill out the poll by March 5th. [Note that a response to the poll does not constitute registration.] We will release further logistics information and the staff and team registration forms when we decide upon a date.

The results of the date poll were very close; Saturday, May 15th came out on top.

We have chosen to charge $75 per team. The team registration form is here. If your team cannot afford this fee, we are willing to compromise; there is a space in the team registration form to inform us of circumstances that affect your ability to pay. We want quizbowl to be accessible to everyone and hope to ensure that every team who wants to play can.

Staff will be paid $40 for a full day of staffing, and proportionally less [based on the number of rounds they staff] for a partial day. The staff registration form is here. We ask moderators to have good microphone equipment prepared for the tournament. We will do our best to honor requests from two people to staff a room together; there is a space in the staff registration form to indicate a co-staffing request.

Due to lack of interest, we have moved the date of this tournament to Saturday, May 22nd. If you only filled out the date poll, you are not yet registered for the tournament. Please fill out the registration form here as soon as possible!

Unfortunately, there aren't enough teams to run a tournament, so we have to cancel. We sincerely apologize to all teams who expressed interest.
