New Trier Scobol Solo 11/1/14

Postby Big Y » Fri Sep 12, 2014 8:16 am

This is an invitation to participate in the Fourteenth Annual New Trier Scobol Solo, to be held on Saturday, November 1. New Trier is located in Winnetka, just north of Chicago. This tournament is not being mirrored elsewhere in Illinois this year.

Unlike most other tournaments, this one will feature one-on-one matches (i.e. no teams). Each match will consist of twenty tossup questions without bonuses. Each individual who enters is guaranteed seven matches, which will take place from 9:00-3:00. We will then have a Championship Match at 3:30 featuring the top nine students all playing at once.

The cost to participate is $30 per player for the first eight players on your team. If you can supply an experienced moderator, then the cost is only $20 per player for the first eight players, and it is only $10 per player if you have two moderators. I am willing to negotiate if you have more than two moderators. Lunch will be provided for everybody. Keep in mind that moderators will be unable to watch their own players' matches. Even if you don't moderate, there will be several times that some of your students play at the same time. If you wish to enter more than eight players, they will be entered on a standby basis. If there is room for them to play, they will play for free. I will let you know by November 1 how much room we have--we are hoping to have exactly 128 students total.

Old questions are at: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/questionse ... archived=y

The tournament is set up so that matches always feature two students with identical records.

Please return the attached form with a check. If you want to hold some spaces for your school while your business office is cutting the check, email me at reinsted@newtrier.k12.il.us or post here. Reserve spaces by October 15. Based on recent years, I expect this tournament to fill before the deadline, so you need to let me know soon if you want me to reserve spaces. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

This tournament is now more than half full. The field cap of 128 will not change.

Also, I need a lot more moderators.

The coach should be officially contacting you soon, but IMSA would like to reserve 8 spots for players and 1 spot for a moderator.

This tournament will be full in the extremely near future. Look at the original post to see how many spots have been reserved by each school.

We are still looking for moderators.
