UCLA will be hosting a mirror of New Trier High School on January 9th, 2010. Fees etc to be announced later, but expect them to be slightly less that TWAIN was. I should have a full announcement up by the weekend.

I should have the full announcement up tomorrow, we are currently debating the base fees (Most likely in the 60-80 range, not sure where within that range). We can probably expect a field of around 20 teams.

We're going with Sunday the 17th, and the field will be limited to 12 teams for now, unless there is extreme demand.

OK, I just reserved 6 rooms for January 9th, and I'm going to post this to the socalhsquizbowl list serv. I also reduced the entry fee by another $5. We also found another one of our buzzers, so buzzers likely will not be an issue.

Can someone post here letting me know that the announcement was sent out properly? Thanks!

Yeah, I had messed up with dates and finally straightened stuff out to avoid conflicts (mainly ACF winter). The plan was to have it on the 17th if Winter was in Southern California, but being at Stanford will prevent us from staffing with some sleep the night before. The 23rd is an SAT date I believe, so that left the 9th open. The e-mail I posted to the list should have said the 9th.

Bumping to let you know the field is starting to fill up, and top finishers will qualify for the PACE-NSC. At this point we only have 5 spots still available, though we will consider expanding the field if demand is accompanied by supply.

RB is listed as "interested" in the field post... We are definitely more than just "interested," as I have already posted. We'll bring (probably) two teams.

EDIT: We'll bring a buzzer set (maybe 2) as well.

Lucas, please send me an e-mail at Golran -at- ucla -dot- edu with number of teams buzzers, etc.

Also, we are almost at our field cap, with one more slot available. Further teams will be put on a waitlist, and if we are able to find enough readers and buzzers we will expand the field to accommodate additional teams.

We were able to reserve 3 more rooms so the field cap has been pushed up to 18 teams, and we plan to run a nearly identical format to TWAIN due to the style of room reservations.

So I was looking through last year's NTV set, and I couldn't help but wonder...Is this set going to have those ridiculous vocabulary questions?

No. There was I believe a total of 4/4 vocabulary in last year's NTV set, and that is gone from this year's set. There also was some Interdisciplinary stuff, which is now contained in about two bonuses in the entire set. The distribution is here. I guarantee that you will like this year's set better than last year's.

It now looks like there might be another mirror, so any question discussion beyond people saying they liked or disliked the questions should take place at this Facebook link rather than on this board.

Based on the morning stats, Stephen can play this game.
