Summer Duos 2021: Announcement and Call for Sign-ups (8/14/21)

Post by Nurostep »

Hello everyone! I am pleased to announce an upcoming online tournament for high school quiz bowl players. The tournament is scheduled to begin at 8:30am CST on August 14, 2021. I, Sinecio Morales [Auburn High School], and Aarya Singh [Barrington High School] and will be co-TDing for this tournament.

If you are interested, please use this spreadsheet to sign up:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

You may sign up as a free agent if you don't have a partner already and contact other free agents to form a duo. WE WILL NOT ACCEPT SOLO PARTICIPANTS, it is strictly a duos tournament. The payment is $20 for each duo.

If you are interested in staffing, please contact one of the TDs via email: sinecio928 (at) gmail (dot) com, aaryasingh (at) gmail (dot) com; or Discord: nurostep#1608, Papaarya#0028. Each staffer will receive a compensation of $25 for staffing the full 10 rounds, we will need 12 for the current field of 24 teams. This does mean that each staffer will need to be comfortable reading and scorekeeping by themselves in a room. If there is enough demand and enough staff, we will consider expanding the field.

Another post will follow soon with more information, as well as a distribution for players' purposes. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact either of the TDs or to reply to this post if they will help the general public.

After some talking and realizations, some of the info about this tournament still needs to be posted:

While the set is being written as TUs and bonuses, the first run of this tournament (aka Summer Duos) will be TUs only.

This tournament is open to all high school students from rising freshmen to rising college freshmen (Class of '25-Class of '21)

We are still looking for more staff and teams!! We only need a few more teams, please contact either Aarya or myself if you would be interested in staffing. If the idea of staffing the whole room alone is bothering you, let us know. We can try to accommodate by pairing some people up.
