Penn Bowl Mirror at Harvard (10/19/19)

Post by mrmotag » Wed Sep 04, 2019 10:49 pm

Hi all,

Harvard College Bowl is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a mirror of Penn Bowl on Saturday, October 19, 2019!

Logistics:
The tournament will be held in the first floor of Sever Hall, which is located next to the historic Tercentenary Theatre. 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, Ricky Li, am the tournament director, and I can be reached at either harvardqb@gmail.com or lie1@college.harvard.edu.

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

Registration:
The field size is capped at 20 teams; both high school and college teams are eligible to participate. To register, email harvardqb@gmail.com. Please include "Penn Bowl 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 Penn Bowl can be found here.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions regarding the tournament!
