ARCADIA @ Harvard (11/13/21)

Post by mazinomer »

Hi all,

Harvard College Bowl is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a mirror of ARCADIA on Saturday, November 13, 2021!

Logistics:
This tournament will be held in Sever Hall in Harvard Yard, next to the historic Tercentenary Theater. We recommend using the MBTA Red Line to get to the tournament, as parking options in the area are limited and traffic can be unpredictable. Registration will begin at 8:30 am: we aim to hold the opening meeting at 9:00 am and finish by 6:00 pm at the latest (teams in finals or tiebreakers may need to stay until 6:30 pm). There will be preliminary and playoff rounds, with rebracketing in between. A lunch break will take place when most convenient; teams will have access to a variety of food options in Harvard Square. Parking is admittedly difficult in Cambridge, but this is probably the best option.

I, Mazin Omer, will be the tournament director. You can reach me at [email protected] or [email protected].

Fees:
Tournament fees/discounts are the following:
+$120 per attending team
-$5 per working buzzer system (must have power cord and 8 functional buzzers, maximum three buzzer systems per organization)
-$15 per experienced moderator (must be familiar with quiz bowl rules/scoring, and have good pronunciation, speed, and reading skills)
-$10 if your team has to travel more than 200 miles one way, according to Google Maps
–$20 if your school is new to quizbowl. Schools who are new to quizbowl have never played a regular-difficulty (not exclusively novice) collegiate academic tournament before September 1, 2020 and have players who have not formerly played such tournaments for another school.

Registration:
The field size is capped at 20 teams; all college teams are eligible to participate. To register, email [email protected]. Please include "ARCADIA Registration" in the email subject, and specify where you are from, the number of teams you would like to bring, and any relevant discounts. Registrations are not complete until we respond in some fashion saying so!

Set Details:
Details for ARCADIA can be found here.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

Since the earliest train from Providence arrives at South Station at 9:00, I'll be pushing the start time of this tournament back to 9:30 AM.
