Centre Spring Invitational (Canceled)

Post by powerplant » Tue Mar 17, 2009 4:01 pm

The Centre College Quizbowl Club is happy to announce our first ever tournament, occurring on Saturday May 2nd, 2009. The tournament will be run using HSAPQ's ACF set #4, which means the questions will be good.

The cost for the tournament is $80, but with $10 discounts for buzzers and moderators. The minimum fee per team will be $60.

Because this is our first tournament, and we want things to run as smooth as possible, we are setting a tentative cap at 18 teams. Depending on promises regarding staff and buzzers, we can go as high as 24 teams.

To register, please email me at joe [dot] wells [at] centre [dot] edu.

Hope to see you here in Danville on the 2nd!

I'll talk to our coaches about it, it may be something very fun to do. I loved Danville at GSP, and I think taking my teammates to Burke's and some of the other sites in town may be a nice way to end my career as a player.

Sadly we have to cancel the tournament. I think that there wasn't really enough notice for many teams to register, so hopefully by announcing things farther in the future we won't have this problem.

Can the mods edit in the cancellation to the thread title?

Well, we had various reasons for not attending the tournament, and really at this moment we need all our money for Nationals. Also, scheduling a tournament on Derby Day isn't the best idea for Kentucky schools.
