East of Eden [Online, NC/TN/SC/GA, April 10]

Post by bkmcavoybickford »

The East Chapel Hill quiz bowl team would like to welcome you to East of Eden, our mirror of the SATURNALIA question set, on Saturday April 10, 2021. This tournament will be held entirely online, using the Discord platform for quiz bowl tournaments. The tournament will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 10, 2021; we are looking for it to end at 5:00 p.m.

Regional Restrictions: This will serve as the main SATURNALIA mirror for North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia. Teams from other states will be directed to the national mirror if possible. SATURNALIA is a regs+ set, so of roughly the same difficulty as the state tournament in NC. We would not recommend teams entirely of new players to sign up for this set.

Rules: We will be using the NAQT rules for quiz bowl tournaments with a few exceptions:
Timers will not be used at this tournament
Because this tournament is online, there are 5 seconds to buzz in after the end of a tossup, 5 seconds to give an answer on a tossup, and 8 seconds to provide an answer on a bonus.
Cameras will be required for all players who do not provide a valid reason for an exemption ahead of time, or develop clear camera problems over the course of the tournament.
Please note that both powers (15 points) and negs (-5 points) will be in effect.

Registration: This form will be used for registration: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... sp=sf_link. Please e-mail us if you want to change anything about your registration. We will be e-mailing you a few weeks in advance of the tournament for a team roster. The field is capped at 16 teams.

Fees: The fee for this tournament is $60. There is a -$20 discount for any team that provides a qualified and experienced reader. Payment must be made in a check to the school—we will provide information on that to teams that register. If this does not work for your team, talk to us and we will see what we can do.

Conduct: Because of school policy, all players will be required to sign waivers to participate in this tournament. They must do this before the tournament starts. All players will also have to attest that they will obey the PACE Code of Conduct, and are willing to turn their cameras on as that will be required. Cheating at this tournament will not be tolerated and we will take measures against people who cheat in any way.

Questions: Please refer all questions to me, Benjamin McAvoy-Bickford. My e-mail is [email protected].
