Sagacity X - University of Pittsburgh (11/22/14)

Post by bis17 » Mon Sep 08, 2014 10:06 am

Registration for Sagacity X is currently CLOSED.

Pitt Quiz Bowl invites your team to participate in Sagacity X, which will take place on Saturday, November 22, 2014, at the University of Pittsburgh campus in the Cathedral of Learning. This tournament is open to quiz bowl teams from all high schools, regardless of location, public/private status, or level of prior experience in academic competition. Schools wishing to form new teams and attend this event are encouraged to do so and we will provide any assistance possible in this endeavor. All teams should be registered by Saturday, November 8, which is two Saturdays before the tournament, however limits may need to be set beforehand if not enough buzzer systems can be provided.

We will follow the official NAQT rules for match play, which can be found at http://www.naqt.com/rules.html. NAQT will supply the questions.

You may enter up to three teams from a single school. Please note that this is a change in policy from previous tournaments. Up to six students may play for a single team during the course of the tournament, but only four may play at one time. Players may not switch from one of their school’s teams to another during the course of the tournament. You may register by physical mail using the included form or by emailing the relevant information to gloriousachievement@gmail.com, which is overwhelmingly preferred. In either case, please provide an email address and check it regularly. All follow-up communication about this event, including any emergency announcements in the event of inclement weather, etc., will occur by e-mail.

The fee structure is as follows:

[*] $70 for the first team from a school, $60 for the second team, and $50 for the third team
[*] $10 off your total fee for each working buzzer system brought
[*] $10 off for each team from a school that has never attended a Pitt tournament before
[*] $10 off per moderator brought to assist with the tournament
[*] $10 off for traveling over 200 miles to attend

Payment on the date of the tournament is vastly preferred. Please make checks out to “Pitt Quiz Bowl.” If this is not possible, our treasurer Meredith Sparks's contact information is available upon request. Copies of the tournament’s questions will be available afterwards for $20, which can be included with your tournament fee or paid separately.

Team check-in will run from 8:30 to 9:00, to be followed by a brief orientation meeting. Gameplay will commence until approximately 5:00, with a break for lunch midway. The specific schedule depends on the field size and will be distributed at the tournament. Regardless of tournament schedule, all teams are guaranteed at least ten games.

If you have any questions or concerns not addressed in this letter, or your team has special needs, please feel free to contact us using the information below.

Hope to see you there,

Brandon Sherman,
Tournament Director

EDIT: I just found out we're using IS-142.

My understanding is that they already closed the field. I will check with Brandon since no one from Pitt really reads the forums.

It would be logistically impossible for us to run a tournament with any more teams at this point in time. Therefore we have decided to close registration. Thank you for understanding.
