Golden Bear Invitational (2/10/2013 at UC Berkeley) [GSAC]

Post by Tanay »

The Quiz Bowl team at UC Berkeley will be hosting the Golden Bear Invitational on February 10, 2013. The tournament will use Maggie Walker's GSAC set, and will be the third tournament in the California Cup series. Previous iterations of this set can be found on the question database.

Registration will begin at 9:30 am, with rounds beginning at 10:00 am. We have not yet confirmed the specific location of this tournament on campus--that information will be posted here when available. Once again, we will offer separate Junior Varsity and Varsity divisions and guarantee eight rounds to all participating teams, with prizes going to the highest scorers and top teams.

We are tentatively capping the field at 40 teams, but that number is subject to change (likely upward, if anything). To register for this tournament, e-mail us at californiacupquizbowl at gmail dot com.

Fees:
$80 base fee
$65 base fee for new teams (as determined by the tournament director)
-$10 for middle schools
-$10 for buzzers
-$10 for staff (if needed)
-$25 for travel over 75 miles
Further discounts for shorthanded teams

Teams that have already paid the entry fee for the California Cup will be entered for free.

Right. Ankit is in charge of stats entry this time, and he knows that teams would like to see their stats soon. However, there are issues with some of the scoresheets (first-time moderators not marking individual scores, total points on bonus that end in "5", etc.) we're trying to resolve first.
