BAAL HS Tournament at Menlo (October 5)

Post by njsbling »

BAAL invites you to the Quizbowl Revolution that Shook Portugal at the Menlo School on 5 October 2013.

BAAL will open its quiz bowl season on 5 October at the Menlo School in Atherton on the 103rd anniversary of the Portuguese Republic with the QRtSP, employing strategic use of key letters of the alphabet. We invite all teams, both varsity and JV, to participate in separate divisions. You may enter multiple teams and receive a discount to do so.
Every game will have 20 toss-ups and each toss-up will have a 3-part bonus.
Prizes will go to the top teams and top players (probably plaques from Dinn Brothers).
We are changing the start time. Teams should have lunch before arriving at the Menlo School. Registration will be at 1PM, and the rules meeting will follow immediately at 1:15PM. Teams should expect to play seven or eight straight matches (1:30 PM to 4:30 PM).
QRtSP will be held at the Menlo School, 50 Valparaiso Avenue, Atherton, CA 94027

Fees and discounts:
Base entry fee: $100 first team and $80 per additional teams
experienced moderator -$30
inexperienced volunteer -$10 (i.e. Scorekeeper)
working buzzer system -$20 per working buzzer
JV -$40 per team (JV = no more than two players played last year)
pay early by mail -$10 per team
travel 75+ miles (one way) -$20 per team

New schools are strongly recommended to enter the JV section.
Example: Brand-New High School decides to enter two JV teams. Their base fee will be $180. They take a $80 discount as New. The coach comes and helps as a scorekeeper, and they bring a buzzer (- $10 -$20). Their total fee is $70 for the two teams.

Contact Gaius (at) Berkeley (dot) edu to register (or call 510-703-BAAL).

Congrats to Menlo School which went 4-0 and won the BAAL HS event at Menlo. Due to technical difficulties with laptops, rounds 4-5 were played with 2013 FKT while rounds 1-3 were not.
