Penn Bowl at UW & on Skype - Sunday, 10/20/13

Post by Mike Bentley » Sun Oct 06, 2013 11:20 am

The Quizbowl Team at the University of Washington will be hosting a mirror of Penn Bowl on Sunday, October 20th, 2013 in Seattle, WA. This tournament will also be taking place over Skype. See below.

This will be an open tournament.

If you're interested in signing up, shoot me an e-mail at uwquizbowl@gmail.com.

By the way, thanks to the people at Wells Fargo and the UW SAO for sponsoring some of the fees for this tournament.

We're going to make this an open online mirror.

You should attend a real in person site if you can, but if you can't, we'd love to have your team. We're going to cap the field at 8 teams. Right now we have 2 UW teams and I believe Boise State is also interested.

Teams have to be in one physical location, but you can form various hybrid open teams.

Tournament will take place over Skype. We'll start around 8 AM Pacific Time on Sunday. I anticipate we'll play somewhere between 7-10 rounds. Entry fee will be $20 per person. If you provide a moderator, you can play for whatever the mirror fee for your team ends up being. I'll post more details about how the logistics of an online tournament works later.

If anyone wants to freelance moderate, we'd certainly appreciate that.

To register, e-mail me at uwquizbowl@gmail.com.

Ok, we're more or less at our field cap now. Other teams can register to be on the waitlist. If we get an influx of moderators we may be able to increase the field cap to 10 or 12 teams, although I'm a bit reluctant to do that because it increases the possibility that a round will have a technical glitch that slows people down.

I've decided to bump up the field cap to 10 teams. This means we now have 10 teams and are still at the field cap, but you can still sign up to the waitlist if you want.

So, UW A and UNC A faced off in a 1 game final after going 8-1 in the round robin. UW A won 260-250 after a protest resolution.

Hopefully these incomplete stats will be updated soon. If you need some help, I have stats for all nine of St. Joe's matches.

Edit---For general overall results, and specific results for SJHS:

1st---UW A 9-1
2nd---UNC A. 8-2
3rd---WUSTL. 6-3
4th---ASU. 5-4
T5---UNC B. 4-5
T5---Peterson/Katz. 4-5
T5---SJHS 4-5
T8---Robert Pond 2-7
T8---UW B 2-7
T8---Boise. 2-7

Specifically, SJHS scored 1780 points over 9 games for a 197.78 PPG, heard 76 bonuses and scored 1070 BP for a PPB of 14.08, and Jack went 1-56-10 for 58.33 PPG; Greg was 2-10-3 for 12.78 PPG; Justin was 2-5-1 for a 8.33 PPG, and Dan was 0-0-1 for a -0.56 PPG.

I do not know specific scores for other teams. I hope these stats help.
