Earlybird at Illinois - Urbana, IL - 10/10/2015

Post by No Electricity Required » Tue Aug 25, 2015 9:36 am

The Earlybird Tournament will be held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Saturday, October 10, 2015.

QUESTIONS:
We will be mirroring the 2015 Brookwood Invitational Scholar's Bowl set. Information about the set can be found in this thread.

FORMAT:
The Earlybird tournament will use mACF format. In particular, Earlybird will be a 4-on-4 tournament; matches will be standard 20 tossup/20 bonus rounds, with sudden-death tiebreakers; bonuses are three parts read one at a time, and there will be no bouncebacks. We will be using 15-point powers.

In terms of tournament structure, we will use some form of round robin prelims, followed by rebracketing for playoffs, and an ACF-format final.

WHO WE'RE TRYING TO ATTRACT:
The University of Illinois ABT is pleased to invite all interested teams from any state to attend this tournament. In the past, we've attracted teams from not just Illinois but also Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky, and Missouri. Everyone will have the chance to play good teams on good questions. We're also interested in receiving second, third, ... teams from the same school.

COST:
The base registration fee is $65. Teams may receive a $5 discount for each working buzzer set they bring up to $10, for a minimum registration fee of $55 per team ($45 should staffers be needed). Subsequent teams after the first will be $55. Should we require staffers from schools they will receive a $10 discount per staffer off of their overall registration team.

REGISTRATION:
If you're interested in registration or have any other questions in general, please e-mail me, Tristan Willey, at twilley287 at gmail dot com. Please use "Earlybird" as your subject line.

I've sent a couple requests to get a private usergroup for the set arranged, but until that happens, please email me at adsilverman at bellsouth dot net if you've got any immediate general criticisms/fact-checks/requests to see a specific question. Thanks!
