Triton Middle School Tournament II [1/28/17 @ UCSD]

Post by jonathanluck » Fri Dec 16, 2016 6:25 pm

The UCSD quizbowl team will host our second Triton Middle School Tournament, to be held at UCSD on Saturday, January 28th, 2017.

The set will be run on NAQT MS-20.

Pricing:
Any new schools (a school that did not play a tournament in the 2015-2016 season) will pay a flat $20 per team.

For returning schools:
$55 per team of 4 or less
$70 per team of 5 or 6.
Teams of more than 6 are no longer accepted

Discounts:
- $20 per school that successfully introduces Quiz Bowl to another school
- $10 per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)
- $10 per experienced moderator
- $5 per 50 miles traveled one-way per school

Minimum Fees:
$40 for each regular team
$20 for each new school team

How to Register:
More logistics information will be provided closer to the date of the tournament to teams that are registered. To register (or if you have any questions), email us at ucsdqb@gmail.com with:
1. How many teams you expect to bring
2. The number of buzzers and/or moderators that you can provide
3. A contact email and phone number

Registration Limits:
We are implementing a soft field cap of 18 teams until we fully confirm rooms and staffers. Six spots will be reserved for new schools. The remaining 12 spots can be filled by either new or returning schools. Returning schools will be limited to registering two team each. Any additional teams they want to register will go onto a wait list. If the new school slots are not filled one week prior to the tournament or we can expand the field cap, teams on the wait list will be let off.

Update (1/6/17): In order to better prepare middle school teams for MSNCT, computational math questions will be read at this tournament. Games will consist of two untimed, 10-question halves.

Update (1/11/17): If your school needs an invoice for reimbursement or payment purposes, please let us know in your registration email.

Because we currently have enough buzzers signed up to run the tournament, we will no longer be accepting buzzers with new registrations.

Just a tip: You should really have at least a few extra buzzer sets available, because even experienced quizbowl clubs are not very reliable at bringing working buzzers, and it can really hurt gameplay at your tournament. If you have n teams coming and n/2 buzzer systems, you're risking your teams having a very bad time.

Good idea, Alex; thanks for the advice.

Hi, we cannot bring a buzzer anymore because it broke during practice. Please remove us from the buzzer list
