Stevenson Memorial Tournament (SMT) @ UW 4/28/2018

Post by jeff.gdv »

The University of Washington is pleased to announce a mirror of the Stevenson Memorial Tournament (SMT) on April 28, 2018.

The tournament will be located in Savery Hall, with the first round beginning at 9 AM sharp. We ask participants to arrive by 8:30 AM at the latest so we can go over logistics beforehand. Parking is available at a number of University parking lots for a flat fee of $5 for the day. More in-depth detail will be provided as the tournament date approaches.

As per SMT rules, high school and undergraduate (not defined by years, but rather whether you have a Bachelor's degree) collegiate teams may enter. Teams composed of students from different schools is not allowed. If you are a Graduate Student wishing to play, you must seek permission from Young Lee (email [email protected], and CC me so I'm in the loop - my email is [email protected]). We will have a tentative field cap at 16 teams, though given the field we cater to that most likely will not be a problem. If we somehow do go above that cap, a waiting list will be kept.

Please email me at [email protected] with information about the number of teams you wish to bring, as well as any relevant discounts for which your team(s) are eligible.

+$110 Base Fee
-$5 Per working Buzzer Set
-$15 Per experienced moderator (i.e. familiar with quizbowl rules/scoring; we reserve the right to revoke this discount upon discovery of poor moderation)
-$10 Per 100 miles traveled, rounded to the nearest 100
Minimum Fee: $50

Further details about the tournament, packet set, etc can be found here. And you can always email me at [email protected] to ask any questions you have. Hope to see some great teams there!
