(Posting on behalf of Nimish and Andrew)
The third Triton Winter Tournament will be held on Saturday January 21st, 2012, most likely at our usual location in HSS.
QUESTIONS: The questions will be written by National Academic Quiz Tournaments, LLC. The set identification number is IS-109.
NATIONAL QUALIFIER: Since this is an NAQT tournament, the top 15% of teams will receive invitations to the 2012 HSNCT. We also typically receive PACE certification for our tournaments; thus, a certain percentage of teams at TWT will qualify for the 2012 PACE National Scholastic Competition, to be held in Chicago in June 2012.
FORMAT: We plan to run a format of initial round-robins followed by a playoff in regrouped round-robins. Matches will be 20 pyramidal tossups and up to 20 bonuses.
REGISTRATION: Please officially register only after you are fairly certain you'll be able to come; having teams dropping out 24 hours before the tournament or not showing up at all complicates things considerably, and prevents us from providing you with a quality experience. Letting us know that you're interested is encouraged, however, if you can't commit to registration just yet.
Teams will be allowed to have 5 players total, so 4 players and one alternate. When you register, please send us a roster identifying who will be on each of your teams early on so we can set up our stat-keeping software in advance. Subsequent roster changes are fine, but the more information we have now, the better.
Base fee (first team): $80
Second team and subsequent teams from the same school: $60
*Teams in difficult financial situations should contact us directly to discuss possible options
-$20 per competent moderator
-$10 per competent scorekeeper
-$5 per buzzer system
-$5 per 50 miles traveled, one-way, as judged by Google Maps from your school to UCSD
Please contact tournament directors Andrew Honda and Nimish Pratha at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have any questions. We'd love to have you join us at UCSD for an exciting day of quizbowl!
