2021 WORKSHOP Northeast Mirror at Harvard (2/13/2020)

Post by mrmotag »

I am pleased to announce that the Northeast site of 2021 WORKSHOP will be hosted by Harvard on Saturday, February 13, 2021.

The tournament will take place virtually on Discord. The opening meeting will begin at 8:45 am eastern and gameplay will begin at 9:00 am eastern. Thomas Gioia and Mazin Omer will be co-tournament directors. Please direct any questions about this site to [email protected].

Eligibility
This mirror will follow the same geographic boundaries as IKEA Northeast -- NY and all states to the north and east. Teams must be closed and meet ACF's eligibility rules.

Rules
This tournament will follow ACF’s official gameplay rules, along with their modifications to the standard ruleset to account for the differences between online and in-person gameplay. This tournament will also be using advanced stats (OphirStats).

Registration and Field Size
To register, please fill out this Google form. Registration will close one week prior to the tournament. This tournament’s field will be capped at 18 teams, after which a waitlist will form.

Fees
  • Base fee: $90 per team
  • Staffers: –$20 per each experienced staffer who satisfies the following: staff must be able to complete a round in 45 minutes, must have functional laptops and internet connectivity, and are highly encouraged to complete ACF’s interactive online moderator training if they have not already done so. While your school may supply as many staff as you please, you will not be discounted beyond your minimum fee.
  • New to quizbowl discount: –$20
  • Minimum fee: $50 per team
The new to quizbowl discount is intended for schools that did not send a team to any regular collegiate academic tournament (exclusively Novice tournaments do not count) since September 2019, and have no one on the team(s) claiming this discount who played those tournaments for another school.

Unaffiliated staff will be paid $20 for the day and may sign up to staff this tournament on a first-come, first-serve basis via this Google form. Please note that priority will be given first to staff from Harvard, and then to staff provided by the schools who send teams to this tournament. We will confirm availability several weeks in advance of the tournament if we need unaffiliated staff.

Code of Conduct and Anti-Cheating Policy
All players in this tournament must abide by the 2021 WORKSHOP Code of Conduct in order to participate.

All players in this tournament will be required to keep their cameras turned on and keep one hand visible on screen during all live questions. Players who seek reasonable exceptions to this policy must get their exceptions approved by the co-tournament directors, and may only play a round without their camera turned on if all members of their opposing team are comfortable with that.
