The UCSD Quizbowl team is excited to announce Triton Winter VIII, to be hosted on our campus on Saturday, January 11, 2020.

This tournament will be open to all high school teams and will mirror the LOGIC set.

For returning schools:
$90 for the first team
$80 for each additional team

Teams of more than six players will not be accepted for either new or returning teams.

Discounts:
-$20 per school that successfully introduces quizbowl to another school
-$5 per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)
-$10 per experienced moderator that provides their own laptop or tablet capable of editing Google Sheets
-$5 per 50 miles traveled per team (one-way)

Early Registration Discounts:
-$10 per team that registers on or before January 4
-Additional $10 per team that registers on or before December 21

Minimum Fees:
$40 for each regular team
$30 for each new school team

How to Register:
More logistics information will be provided closer to the date of the tournament to teams that have registered. To register (or if you have any questions), email us at [email protected] with:
1. How many teams you expect to bring in each division(include a request for waitlisted teams)
2. The number of buzzers and moderators you can provide
3. A contact email and phone number
4. Additional discounts (new school or distance)
5. Final expected cost (excluding waitlisted teams)
Please include the name of the tournament as well as your school in the subject of your email (e.g. "UCSD registration for Triton Winter")

Registration Limits:
We will implement a soft field cap of 20 teams until we can confirm rooms and staffers. Returning schools will be limited to registering three teams each. Any additional teams they would like to register will be placed onto a waitlist. If reserved spots are not filled one week prior to the tournament or we can expand the field cap, teams on the waitlist will be let off.

Thanks to all the players who came to Triton Winter, especially those who made the trip from LA or Las Vegas, as well as all our staffers.

Congratulations to Arcadia, who defeated Westview "C" 415 - 230 in the first game of an advantaged final to win the tournament. Stats are now up on the database.

We hope everyone who came had an enjoyable tournament, and we hope to see you all at SoCal States, Triton Spring, and Triton Pre-Nats!
