GINVIT 2016 at University of Minnesota (12/3/16)

Postby green_eggs_and_sam » Fri Oct 21, 2016 5:44 pm

The University of Minnesota Quizbowl Team is proud to announce that we will be holding GINVIT 2016 (Gopher Invitational Tournament) Saturday, December 3, 2016 at the University of Minnesota.

This will be a regular high-school-level tournament using NAQT packet IS-158. We will be playing using modified NAQT rules, with only major changes being that rounds are not timed and only twenty tossups will be read per round.

The tournament will begin at 9:00 AM in Blegen Hall on the West Bank Campus where tournaments usually take place, with registration in Blegen room 5 beginning at 8:30 AM, and will go until the mid- to late-afternoon (likely between 4 and 5 PM). We ask that everyone arrive by 8:45 AM so that we can get the tournament started promptly at 9:00 AM.

$80 per team registered
-$5 per working buzzer system* **
-$5 per 100 miles travelled**
-$10 per moderator provided* **

If your team would like to participate, please register at

We have a field cap set tentatively at 24 teams. Please tell me if your team is interested in playing ASAP.

Any staffers interested in staffing this tournament, we will provide pizza and drinks for lunch. Please e-mail Sam Levin at if you are interested.

***We officially have PACE NSC Platinum Qualification, meaning the top 25 percent of teams qualify for PACE NSC in Chicago June 10-11.

Thank you!
