Triton Spring VI

Post by Taiwan Wren-Babbler »

UC-San Diego Quiz Bowl is pleased to announce Triton Spring VI at UCSD:

LOCATION: 9500 Gilman Dr., La Jolla, California, 92093.
The tournament will likely take place in either the Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) building or Center Hall. We will send out additional information to registered teams as the tournament approaches by contact email, the SoCalQB Facebook group, and this post.

DATE: The tournament will be held on Saturday, May 14th . Check-in begins at 8:00 am, and first round should begin around 9 am. Schedules will be distributed at check-in.

FORMAT: The tournament will mirror Yale BHSAT. The tournament will adhere to Official NAQT Rules, with the exception that each round will be run as two untimed, 10-question halves and you will be given 5 seconds to answer after buzzing on a tossup. The format will consist of a preliminary round robin followed by reseeding based on results from the round robin phase. Seedings in the individual sub-brackets will be determined by the overall win-loss record. Ties in preliminary brackets will be resolved based on points per bonus, followed by points per game.

ELIGIBILITY: All high school students are welcome to attend.

Base fee = $80 for one team, $70 per team after the first

Discounts will be given as follows:
-$5 for each fully-functional buzzer system (must have at least four working buzzers on both sides)
-$10 for traveling distances over 100 miles, according to Google Maps
-$10 moderator discount
-$30 per team for schools that have not competed in a decent, mACF-style or NAQT tournament in the past 2 years.
Minimum fee = $60/team

Please make checks payable to San Diego Quizbowl. Please do not make a check out to any other person or entity. Checks, or cash will be due at the start of the tournament during registration. Should your team not be able to provide the payment at this time, and would like to send their registration fee in advance or later, please contact the Tournament Director at [email protected] to make the proper arrangements.

REGISTRATION: The tournament director is Jason Cheng. If you are interested in attending or have any questions, send an email to [email protected]

1) Your school's name
2) The number of teams you are bringing
3) The number of buzzer systems you will bring
4) Any moderators you have to offer
5) Price you are expecting to pay, after subtracting relevant discounts.

Updates about the tournament will primarily be through the forums, along with contact email and the SoCalQB Facebook Group.
