STASH Great Lakes Mirror (4/17/2021)

Post by AuburnCoach »

Auburn High School (Rockford, IL) is pleased to announce the STASH Great Lakes Mirror on April 17th, 2021.

The tournament will be using the STASH set, a HS Nationals set written by TJHSST. More information about the set can be found here . The tournament will use powers, negs and bonuses but no bouncebacks.

The current field cap is 24 but this may be increased depending on staffer availability. Please sign up by 4/2/2021. Teams will be limited to a maximum of 6 per team. During the rounds, up to 4 students are permitted to play at any given time, and up to 2 students can sub out at halftime. Teams may have fewer than 4 people. Teams dropping out after 4/12/2021 will still be responsible for the entirety of the fee, though exceptions may be granted in extreme situations.

All students on a team must be from the same school and the school must be located in MN, WI, IL, IN, MI, OH and MO.

Rules against cheating and misconduct will be strictly enforced at this tournament. We reserve the right to remove anyone suspected of cheating or misconduct from the tournament. We will also notify coaches and relevant quizbowl organizations about any such acts.

Due to the current health crisis, this tournament will be conducted online through Discord. Prior to the day of the tournament, we will send the link to the Discord server. All players/coaches should join the Discord server at least a day before the tournament. The first round will start at 9AM CST, but participants should aim to be on the server by 8:30. Teams will not be required to congregate to play. Cameras will also be required to minimize cheating at this tournament. More logistics will be emailed out to teams as the tournament date approaches.

The registration cost is $55 for the first team and $50 for each subsequent team. You can register using this form . The registration deadline is Friday April 2. An invoice will be provided and should be sent along with the check to the address below:

Brad Pemberton
Auburn High School
5110 Auburn St.
Rockford, IL 61101

Once the field has been established, an informational email will be sent with all the details.

Thanks and hope you can participate!

We are looking for experienced moderators to work at the STASH Great Lakes Mirror on 4/17/21.

Due to the difficult question set, we will be paying moderators $30 for the tournament. The payments must be paid through our school district so it will require you to submit a W-9 to receive a check.

If your interested, please apply at this link .
