The quizbowl team of UCSD is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the NAQT-ACUI Region 15 Sectional Championship Tournament at UCSD on Feb. 4th.

Base Fees:
$120 for first team, $100 per subsequent team

Discounts:
-$10 for a competent scorekeeper
-$30 for experienced, competent moderator
-$5 per functioning buzzer system
-$5 per clock

New Team Discount: In an effort to attract more new teams to the circuit, we are offering a -$60 discount to any team that has not played at the last two NAQT Sectionals.

Travel Discounts: If you are coming from somewhere outside the LA-OC-SD area, let us know and we can negotiate a discount commensurate with your mode of transit. We can suggest some nearby hotels for teams as well, but they are fairly expensive. Let us know if you need help with overnight accommodations; I have some space available on campus. We're also happy to help coordinate airport pick-ups as well.

Full logistical details will be sent out to registered teams the week before the tournament. I have emailed as many contacts as I could find at Honors Programs and student activities offices at various Southern California institutions, so we're hoping to get more than the usual suspects. Please register by sending an email to the team account at ucsdqb [at] gmail.com.

Bumped because there's still a number of teams that have indicated interest but have not registered online. Please do so ASAP so we can plan for number of moderators, etc.

NAQT has closed registration. If anyone from Arizona State or Caltech reads this, please let me know ASAP what your plans are.

At this point, it looks like 6 teams in each division. We'll see how it shakes out.

By which I mean: NAQT has re-opened registration through tomorrow in the hope that either or both of Caltech and Arizona State will register.

Congratulations to UCSD A(uroni) and Claremont B for winning the DI and DII divisions of the 2012 Region 15 SCT. Claremont B cleared the field by 3 games in DII and Auroni decisively won an advantaged final against Berkeley to claim the championship.

Full stats for both divisions:

Division I

Division II

Major thanks to Albert Bayer (who braved the Amtrak from LA), Dowon Kim, Anthony Tokman, and Faith Manary for staffing along with other members of the UCSD team.
