Tournament location

SuMO III

Open tournament on July 15, 2017

Host location: Bainbridge High School

Address: 1 Bearcat Boulevard, Bainbridge, GA 39819

Question Set: 2017 Prison Bowl

Field cap: 30 teams

This tournament will be a true open event, which means that the only requirements to participate are that you have the registration fees and a pulse.

----------> Register Here: http://tiny.cc/sumoiiiregister <------------

The tournament will also be "mixed doubles," which means that participants will not register as teams, but as pairs. If you would like to register multiple players, please submit multiple individual registration responses for each pair of players. Pairs will draw numbers at check in on the day of the tournament. Then, each pair will be paired with another pair. This means that players will likely be competing on teams with other players they've never met or even players they've admired silently from afar.

The tournament set will be Hunter College's Prison Bowl 2017. More information about this set can be found here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=19510

We will have a hard cap of 30 teams, which means that we will allow for about 60 pairs. I will take pairs in excess of 60, but these pairs will be placed on a waiting list.

Speaking of workers, I'm going to need 15 moderators. We can't host a tournament without workers; you guys know that. The registration cost per pair is $50. Pairs may collect a $5 discount for bringing a buzzer and a $10 discount for bringing a dedicated moderator. Lunch will not be provided, but ample time will be allowed to eat off campus or bring food to campus.

Half of the registration fees will be placed in the prize pool and divided up 50%-30%-20% for the top three prizes, which means first place will be $750, second place will be $450, and third place will be $300 if and when we hit our cap of 120 players. What's left over of the other half of the registration fees after we pay out tournament costs will be donated to the Bainbridge High School Quiz Bowl Team.

Registration deadline is July 8, 2017. You may bring cash or checks on the day of the tournament. An informational email will be sent out at the registration deadline.
