2020 Gopher Invitational (GINVIT) at UMN (12/05)

Post by Apocolocyntora »

The University of Minnesota Quizbowl Team is proud to announce that we will be holding GINVIT 2020 (Gopher Invitational Tournament) on Saturday, December 5, 2020. This tournament will be hosted virtually on Zoom, and it will begin at 9:00 AM CT, with a staffer meeting held at 8:45 AM CT. Attending teams do not need to have premium Zoom accounts in order to participate; more information about technological logistics will be sent to registered teams.

This will be a regular high-school-level tournament using NAQT packet IS-195. We will be playing using modified NAQT rules, with only major changes being that rounds are not timed and only twenty tossups will be read per round.

Fees
$60 per team registered
-$20 per moderator provided (for coaches/parent volunteers with previous moderating experience)
The minimum fee per team registered is $40.

Registration
This tournament will not impose geographic restrictions; however, priority for all registrations made as of this post will be granted to Minnesota and Western Wisconsin teams who would normally attend such a tournament in person. Teams outside of this geographic area may sign up for the waitlist for GINVIT and enter the field on a first come, first serve basis if there are still open spots available a week prior to the tournament.

Teams within the Minnesota and Western Wisconsin area may register through NAQT's website here: https://www.naqt.com/registration/fiel ... _id=11860

Teams outside of the Minnesota and Western Wisconsin area may register for the waitlist by emailing the University of Minnesota Quizbowl Team at [email protected].

We have a field cap set tentatively at 24 teams. If your team (for any reason) opts out of participating 24 hours prior to the tournament, you will still be expected to pay the tournament dues.

Staffing
Staffers not affiliated with a participating team who have prior moderating experience may sign up to staff by emailing [email protected]. External staffers do not need to have premium Zoom accounts. All external staffers will be paid $30 by check or Venmo.

If you have any general questions, feel free to email [email protected] and we will respond in a timely manner!
