SGI 2018 @ UCSD [11/17/18]

Post by jonathanluck »

The UCSD Quizbowl team will host SGI @ UCSD on November 17th, 2018.

The tournament will be a mirror of Sun God Invitational 2018. Both college teams and high school teams are allowed to play. Additionally, we are running this as an open mirror. Chimera teams and teams with college alums are allowed to play at this site.


For all schools:
$120 for each team.

Teams of more than 6 players will not be accepted for both new and returning teams

- $5 per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)
- $10 per experienced moderator that provides their own laptop or tablet capable of editing Google Sheets
- $5 per 50 miles traveled one-way per team
- $10 if registration is sent in and deposit is placed via Venmo by 7:00pm Monday, Nov. 12
- $10 (additional) if registration is sent in and deposit is placed via Venmo by 7:00pm Monday, Nov. 5

See section below for information on deposits.

Minimum Fees:
$80 for each team.

All college and open teams must place a deposit of $40 via Venmo (@ucsdqb) when they register. That deposit will go towards the registration fee. Deposits will generally not be refunded if a team drops after Monday, Nov 12th @ 7:00pm (except at the discretion of the tournament director). Teams should email us if they have any questions about the deposit.

How to Register:
More logistics information will be provided closer to the date of the tournament to teams that are registered. To register (or if you have any questions), email us at [email protected] with:
1. How many teams you expect to bring (include a request for waitlisted teams)
2. The number of buzzers and/or moderators that you can provide
3. A contact email and phone number
4. Additional discounts (new school or distance)
5. Final expected cost (without waitlisted teams)
Please include the name of the tournament as well as your school in the subject of the email. e.g. "UCSD registration for SGI @ UCSD"

Registration Limits:
We are implementing a soft field cap of 10 teams until we fully confirm rooms and staffers. If we can expand the field cap, teams on the wait list will be let off about 1 week prior to the tournament.
