DEES at Mizzou - November 22, 2014

Post by Make sure your seatbelt is fastened »

The University of Missouri-Columbia will be hosting DEES, the Demonstratively Excellent Educational Saturnalia on November 22. I, Itamar Naveh-Benjamin, will be directing the tournament. The original announcement can be found here.

Submission

This is a packet-sub optional event. Teams that submitted packets will receive discounts reflected in Victor's post in the main DEES thread.

Distribution

*5/5 Literature (1/1 American, 1/1 British, 1/1 European after 500 CE, .5/.5 World, 1.5/1.5 Anything. Please be sure to represent poetry, drama, and fiction and incorporate different time periods and nations)
*5/5 History (1/1 American, 1/1 World History, 3/3 European/Canadian/Australian, with 1 question on classical history, 1 on British history, and 3 on continental Europe included)
*5/5 Science (1/1 Bio, 1/1 Physics, 1/1 Chemistry [only 1 organic chemistry question], 1/1 Math and optional Computer Science [i.e. you can either write 1/1 math or 1 math and one CS), 1/1 Astronomy and Earth Science)
*3/3 Fine Arts (1/1 Painting, 1/1 Music, 1/1 Other, with both visual and auditory arts represented)
*3/3 RMP (1/1 Myth [1 Greco-Roman, 1 other], 1/1 Religion [1 Judeo-Christian, 1 other], 1/1 Philosophy [please vary time periods])
*1/1 Social Science (to copy the ACF guidelines – “Possible topics for this category include economics, psychology, sociology, linguistics, anthropology, political science, social criticism, and law. The two questions should not come from the same field of study. Questions on Supreme Court cases go under history; other law questions may go here.)
*The remaining 2/2 will comprise of a single question from each of the following categories: Popular Culture, Current Events, Geography, and “Your Choice.” I want your choice to be a wild place for you to write questions about something that doesn’t neatly fit in another category but which is interesting.

Fees:

Base fee per team: $120
Discount per buzzer (max 2): $5
Travel discount: $15 if over 200 miles
Discount per capable moderator: $20 (we reserve the right to limit this discount if our staffing needs have been met)

Please bring payment on the day of the tournament in the form of cash or a check made out to the University of Missouri Quizbowl Club. If your buzzers do not work, you will not receive the discount.

Eligibility

This tournament is quasi-open, in the sense that teams comprised of only open players (meaning ACF-ineligible) may join as well as the usual college / high school teams. However, mixing ACF-eligible / ACF-ineligible players into one team is not allowed.

Logistics

The tournament will be held at the Arts and Sciences building. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m.; the first round will start promptly at 9 a.m. We will announce the room numbers as we get closer to the tournament.

To register for this tournament, or if you have any other questions, please email [email protected] with "DEES" in the subject line.

Please remove Louisville from the field. Apologies, but we are going to a mirror closer to us.

This mirror is back on. An updated field can be found in the second post. We'd like to see more teams attend, so feel free to email me if you're at all interested in attending.
