Penn Bowl at Rice (10/19/13)

Post by Victor Prieto »

Sorry this announcement is getting out so late.

I am pleased to announce that Rice will be mirroring Penn Bowl on October 19th, 2013. I, Victor Prieto, will be directing this event. The original announcement for the tournament may be found here.

This tournament will be written entirely by a team of Patrick Liao, Saajid Moyen, and Eric Mukherjee. Eric Mukherjee will be head-editing. There will be 14 packets (not 15) of power-marked questions not longer than 8 lines (including bolding for power). The target difficulty is equivalent to Penn-ance last year.

Distribution
4/4 Literature (1/1 World and Other)
4/4 History
4/4 Science (1/1 Biology, 1/1 Chemistry, 1/1 Physics, 1/1 Math and Other)
3/3 Arts
3/3 RMP
1/1 SS
1/1 Geography, CE, and Other (science history goes here)

Each packet will also have a tiebreaker tossup and an extra bonus, each from literature, history, or science.

Base fee: $120 per team
Working buzzer discount: $10 each
Approved moderator discount: $15 each
Travel discount: $15 (more than 200 miles one way according to Google maps)

METHOD OF PAYMENT (borrowed from Cody Voight, with a few edits)

All teams must pay by the day of the tournament. We prefer to accept payment in person right before the tournament starts.

We can accept cash, and checks made out to me (Victor Prieto). Please do not make out checks to Rice, or Rice University Quiz Bowl, they go into the university system and are very difficult to get ahold of again.

Logistics for the tournament (location, start time, parking) will be sent by email closer to the date of the event. To register for this tournament, or if you have questions, please e-mail me at wasabix10x [at] gmail [dotcom].

Edited for logistical information.

This tournament happened. A five team double round robin resulted in Rice A playing A&M New Army in an advantaged final, which Rice won in the first game. A huge thanks to everyone who came out (A&M).

Stats have been posted here. This is the first time I have ever used SQBS and uploaded stats, so if anybody notices any discrepancies, please tell me and I will try to fix it.

For some reason, the individual detail page has all of the values shifted over one column, but they somehow still total up at the bottom of the column correctly. Can someone shed some light on how to fix this? Thanks.

I believe this is an issue with using an outdated version of SQBS for Mac. You can download a fixed version from the post at the bottom of this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12556#p269888

These comments appeared coincidentally while I alerted the forum about the old SQBS version, but yes, Corry is correct. I gave Victor a suggestion about fixing the problem.
