PACE Information

Post by quizbowllee »

Are there any plans to update the PACE website? I'd like to see the stats from last year. Also, is the 2005 date set in stone? We need to go ahead and make some plans... Especially since NAQT is the weekend before...

They're all there. T-Chuck changed the hosting site so maybe you're stuck seeing the old one.

Hotel information (revised 4/19)

Post by First Chairman »

Just to let you know I have finalized the group reservation for PACE at the Doubletree Hotel Orlando, 5780 Major Boulevard, Orlando FL 32819.

EDIT: Contact 1-800-222-TREE and request rooms as part of the "Valencia Community College PACE Quiz Bowl group."

We have 40 rooms (singles to quads) at a rate of $99 a night beginning Friday 6/10 and concluding Sunday 6/12/05 (so you can leave Monday). The group name is "Valencia Community College/PACE Quiz Bowl." Check-in time is 4pm each day, check-out is 11am.

Upon receipt of room confirmation, you can take the $50 discount for using the "official hotel." I am assuming the honor system for this case, so do not make me have to confirm every team.

The hotel is located just outside University Studios Florida.

We hope that you will all take advantage of using this official hotel, and we look forward to seeing you in June!

Only based on my experience with airline code discounts, try to use them. I think they would apply if there aren't any other cheaper rates.

so...pardon my ignorance, but how do you qualify for PACE; is it top 4, or top 8 at a tournament, or does that vary?

I think you have to place in the top four at a PACE qualifying tournament. If you can't/don't do this, there are also at-large bids you can apply for based on national recognition and performance at other large tournaments.

Top 4 at any PACE-affiliated tournament, but each school has a limit of 2 bids (thus you could finish in the top 8 and be eligible for a bid).

(You could ask for a third bid in the event we have room in the field.)

What is meant by the 26 in blazer06's avatar? A majority of states? And if so go Republicans. (Note the Republicans hold a majority in the House Senate and electoral votes (yes this means Bush is President).

Yeah, its state governors, current break is 22-28; I would say 50 too, as in houses of State Legislatures(there are only 99 state legislatures; Nebraska's is unicam and nonpartisan)...but that's a little too obscure.

Airline and rental car discount codes

Post by First Chairman »

This is from the PAC website:
Discount airfares are offered through Continental Airlines by calling Continental's MeetingWorks at 1-800-468-7022. Advise the agent of the Agreement Code: UMBLNE and Z Code: ZJGY. Auto rental discounts are offered through Avis Rent A Car Systems by calling 1-800-331-1600 and referring to Avis Worldwide Discount (AWD) No. J818358 or by visiting the Avis web site.

Dr. Chuck,

If we get there Friday and leave Sunday will there be enough time to take the team to Universal Studios? I don't know the schedule of the tournament, and I'd like to have some free time. If not, we may try and stay an extra day.

Also, is there somewhere we can get the questions from years past?

Thanks.

My understanding is that matches will be played on Saturday and Sunday, so if you're there early Friday, you'll have that whole day to do Universal. The two parks (Universal actually comprises Universal Studios, with backstage junk, tours, and some rides, as well as Islands of Adventure, which is nearly all rides) are open from 9 am till 8 pm. And the restaurants and clubs at the front of the park, including Emeril's, Hard Rock, etc., are open at least till 11 pm.

Last year in Maryland the tournament finished by 4 pm or so, meaning if you don't leave till Monday, you could get some more time in Sunday evening.

Does anybody know which campus of Valencia Community College that PACE will be held out? It appears that there are four different campuses. Also, how far is the college from the "official" tournament hotel?

OK - I've asked this a few times, but it always seems to get buried before I get a reply. So - here goes again:

Is there anywhere I can download/buy/trade/otherwise GET questions from PACE tournaments of years past?

Yes, the 2005 PACE NSC will take place at the West campus of Valencia Community College. The campus is 3.2 miles north on Kirkman Road from the official hotel, the Doubletree, which itself is across the street from the Universal Studios complex. I am not aware of any public transportation or shuttles between the hotel and the campus (maybe Mr. Borglum can fill us in on that), and it appears there are not many eating establishments within walking distance of the campus, so it would probably be a good idea to rent a car.

As for old PACE question sets, I will talk to Dr. Chuck about getting some up on the website.

As Dan wrote earlier, the tournament will be at Valencia's West Campus, which is at 1800 S. Kirkman Rd., Orlando, FL, 32810. The Doubletree is walking distance to a TGI Friday's and, I think, a Bennigan's; however, there is no shuttle to the campus, so a car will be necessary. Worse, Valencia last year got rid of its 15-passenger vans, so we don't have any way to do any informal shuttling, either.

Again, feel free to direct any logistical or Orlando questions to me at [email protected]

Rosters and T-shirts

Post by First Chairman »

ROSTERS DUE MAY 15:
This is the first official call for rosters for all teams that intend to compete at the 2005 NSC. The following information is needed from all teams:

1) For each student:
First name (or preferred name)
Last name
Grade level in 2004-2005
College to be attended for graduating seniors
Years as a previous PACE NSC participant
T-shirt size (see below)
* While you may opt to designate a captain, it is not necessary. You can also change rosters on-site before the first game is played.

2) For each coach or chaperone:
First name (or preferred name)
Last name
Affiliation with school
T-shirt size (see below)

3) A photograph JPEG format of the team members, preferably with coaches. Please caption the photograph so I don't make wild speculations. :cool:

T-SHIRT PRE-ORDERS:
As extra incentive for submitting rosters on time, PACE is making T-shirts for participants for the 2005 NSC. Currently we are planning on providing shirts to all students listed on submitted rosters and a coach (up to 7 per registered TEAM). Any extra T-shirts could be purchased (preferably in advance) for $10 each, though we are working on the details for that.

I presume that the bulk of our orders will be "large" or "extra large", so those of you with "medium" or "extra extra large" builds should let us know through the pre-order process.

We are taking all T-shirt pre-orders until Sunday, May 15.

As it stands, send all rosters and sizes to me (Dr. Chuck) by email. As soon as I receive that, I will then send out an invoice for your team (should you require it to process your check).

EXTRA:
Finally, PACE announces one change in the procedure for All-Scholars team selection. We have traditionally selected 8 individuals for all-star status, with a minimum of 4 individuals voted in based upon statistics and the other 4 by vote.

This year, the four all-stars selected by statistics will be determined based on preliminary round results only and will be announced on Sunday. That way, all teams and staff can exclude those four individuals when making their choices to be on the all-star team. This should make the balloting process much easier.

That was our tournament field as of April 19, which was noted on the page. We have yet to hear from many of the usual suspects; a few more teams have likely registered in the last two weeks; and we expect several more teams to register in the next few weeks.

If we can get them repaired quickly enough, I can probably bring several buzzer systems... The problem is that they are all kinda quirky right now... I'll see if we can get them fixed in time.

We probably don't "need" you guys at UF to bring more buzzers and readers, but if you have a group that would like to help out (and bring buzzers with you), I'm sure the more the merrier. Contact CB if you have a group interested in coming down; I think you'll enjoy the experience too.

Of course, I subscribe to one of the many rules of tournament directing (which one day I will write down): you can never have too many buzzers or experienced volunteers. (Well, okay, four staff to a room may be too many.)
