(Slightly edited from the email I sent out earlier today)
Aggie Quizbowl is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the Texas mirror of PADAWAN at Texas A&M University on October 25, 2014. PADAWAN is a power-marked, line-capped college regular difficulty tournament - you can read more about the details by following the link in the post above.
We have held off on announcing specifics until now because we were a little uncertain about reserving rooms. However, we are now able to confirm that we will hold this tournament in the Engineering/Physics Building, alternatively known as Cain Hall.
Because of the limitations of this building, we will be capping the field at 9 teams; For this reason, and based on already expressed interest, we will not be accepting registrations for a third team from any school, or a second team from any high school, until after October 11th.
Registration will begin at 8:30 AM, with the hope that we can begin the tournament by 9:00 AM. If teams coming from farther away request it, I am willing to move the start time of this tournament later in the day.
The fee structure is as follows:
*Base Entry Fee: $80
*Each team past the first: -$10
*Competent Moderators: -$15 (max 1)
*Scorekeepers: -$5 (max 2)
*Buzzers: -$10 (max 2)
- If your buzzer does not arrive by 8:50, you will not get this discount.
-$10/team/first 200 miles travelled
-$5/team/each additional 100 miles
(Note: these only apply in one direction)
**Minimum Entry Fee: $45/team
To register a spot in the field, please email us at email@example.com
indicating the number of teams you intend to bring, and the number of buzzers you plan to bring. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
