The fee structure is as follows:
$75 for the first team
$65 for each additional team (Teams may register at most 2 teams. Additional teams will be put on a wait list)
$5 discount per buzzer system (Maximum of 1 per team. e.g. If you bring two teams you are eligible for up to 2 buzzer system discounts.)
$10 discount for providing an experienced moderator (Experienced means that the moderator is familiar with the rules of pyramidal quiz bowl. )

Food:
· Breakfast will be complimentary and will consist of bagels and beverages.

· Teams will have the opportunity to purchase pizza for lunch.


Location:
The tournament will be held at Scarsdale High School. The address is 2 Brewster Rd, Scarsdale, NY, 10583. Teams should use the Brewster Road entrance.

Hello--
Is it still possible to register a team/teams from E. O. Smith in CT? It appears that you have slots left, if your tournament is being set up with a cap of 24 (but I'm not sure about the C teams listed as waiting at the bottom of your entry). Thanks!

The field is now full. Thank you to all that registered.

Any future teams that register will be placed on a waitlist.

Michael (or anyone from the Scarsdale team),

I was wondering if the Scarsdale team has emailed or given out any more logistical information. I haven't been given notified of when registration starts or when the first round is expected to start or information like that. I'm expecting registration to be over and first round to start between 8:45 and 9:00, but something more official from the TD would be helpful.

Thank you!

We did send an email to teams and I thought your email was included but perhaps I mistyped your address or something. Sorry about that.

Registration will be from 815 to 840 with round 1 starting at 9.

Thank you to all that attended.

Congratulations to Kellenberg A on defeating Great Neck South A in the final round to win the tournament.

Congrats as well to Joe Levano from Kellenberg for winning top scorer.

Complete stats will be up by Monday at the latest, but hopefully sooner.
