Triton Fall Tournament at UCSD (11/10/12)

The UCSD Quizbowl team would like to invite you to our annual Triton Fall Tournament, which will be held on Saturday, November 10th, 2012. This year, we are excited to announce that it will be held at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) in the northern part of the UCSD campus.

Due to the overwhelming response in the past and limited number of moderators, we are limiting the number of registrations this year to approximately the first 20 teams. Each school will only be able to sign up one team at first; we will put "B" teams on a waiting list and will only allow them to play if they are needed to round out the field. Please register as soon as possible since we expect the field to fill out very quickly.
Fees and Discounts:

$80 for the first team from a school (teams can consist of a maximum of 6 players, with any 4 playing at one time)

$70 for the second team

-$40 for the first team from a school that has not played QB before (Academic League participation does not count against you)

-$20 for each competent moderator

-$10 for each staffer/scorekeeper

-$5 for each buzzer set

More logistical information will be provided closer to the date of the tournament to teams who have registered. To register, simply reply back to us with how many teams you expect to attend. Each student will also need to fill out a liability waiver form.

The SDSC is also giving tours of the facility for any students who are interested. We will announce more details about the times of the tours in the later logistical email. We think this is an exciting opportunity to show students the research being performed at the SDSC.

I probably didn't make it clear in the original post, but make sure you email us at ucsdqb [at] gmail.com so we can confirm your registration. Posting in this thread won't register you for the tournament.

I'd like to remind teams who are thinking of signing up to sign up in the next week or so. After 10/31, I plan to let the waitlist teams fill up the remaining spots, so if you sign up in November, your team will probably get waitlisted.

Also, if teams can provide moderators, we will be able to expand the field. The SDSC has given us plenty of rooms, so our limit is solely due to the lack of moderators.

I felt like the power markings for the first 5 rounds were a little harsh.
Bonuses and tossups were good.

Congrats to North Hollywood and Irvine for finishing as co-champions of the 3rd annual Triton Fall Tournament (both teams agreed to split in the interest of NoHo having a long drive back). Canyon Crest A was alone in 3rd.

Full stats available here.

Thanks to all the teams for coming to one of the most competitive tournaments we've ever had from top to bottom.

For anyone doing rankings, note that round 13 was a finals round and as such the bonus conversion for many teams took a steep hit. Also, Torrey was missing their best player.

The prelim stats look like there's something wrong with them.
