"Summer" Open at NYU (Nov. 9, 2019)

Post by _nestorius » Sun Aug 11, 2019 6:40 pm

since we were unable to host a true summer open...

Quiz Bowl at NYU is pleased to announce a mirror of "Summer" Open to be held on November 9, 2019. See more information about the question set here: https://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=22134.

REGISTRATION
To register, email me at mbb476 at NYU's domain name (nyu.edu). If you're an open team, be sure to mention the names of all your players and to provide a team name if you wish.

Here is a declaration of interest/team formation spreadsheet: https://bit.ly/2YTpoKk. If you'd like to staff, there's also space here to sign up. (Note that you will not be officially registered until someone from your team emails me.)

I'll tentatively cap the field at 12 teams. Expansion is definitely possible but dependent on the availability of staffers.

FEES
Base Fee: $120/team
Buzzer Discount: -$10 per complete, functioning buzzer set
Staffer Discount: -$10 for a competent staffer
Travel Discount: -$10 for teams traveling at least 150 miles one-way to New York
Minimum Fee: $80

Payment must be made on the day of the tournament by cash or check. Please make any checks out to "New York University" with "Quiz Bowl at NYU" in the memo line. Payment by Venmo is also possible with advance notice.

LOGISTICS
Although our rooms will not be confirmed until the school year begins, the tournament will most likely take place in NYU's Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life (GCASL), located at 238 Thompson St, New York, NY 10012. We will begin registration at 9:00am and begin games around 9:30am.

Side events are also a possibility. Discuss below. I'll make a poll if there's sufficient interest.

Finally, feel free to email me at the above address or respond to this post with any questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing everyone at NYU in November!
