SnowCAT at Carleton College (1/26/13)

Post by CaptainSwing »

The Carleton College Academic Quiz Team is pleased to announce that we will be hosting our annual high school quiz bowl tournament, SnowCAT, on January 26th, 2013.

The question set will come from Invitational Series #122 written by NAQT. The main meeting room will be Olin Hall 149. Here is a campus map: http://www.carleton.edu/map
The Winona St. and Nevada St. lots are the most convenient for parking, and both are free.

It is our aim to start the tournament at 9:00am, so teams are encouraged to arrive by 8:30am at the latest.

Here is the fee structure for our tournament:

Base fee: $80 per team
-$5 for a working quiz bowl buzzer system
-$10 per each moderator provided (please e-mail me ahead of time if you plan to take this discount, as extra moderators will only be used as needed)
-$10 for teams new to SnowCAT
-$20 for teams new to quiz bowl (MN Knowledge Bowl does not count for this - combined with the "new to SnowCAT" discount, Knowledge Bowl teams can play for $50)
-$10 for traveling over 100 miles to reach the tournament

To register, coaches should send me an email at [email protected] with the number of teams they plan on bringing and what discounts (buzzers, moderators, etc) they plan on taking. I will send coaches an invoice upon registration which can be paid by check or cash at the tournament, or by check at any (reasonable) time before or after the event.

We will determine the structure of the tournament when we have a better idea of how many teams will be attending.

Please ask any questions about the tournament, the location, or any other issues which may come up by sending an email to [email protected].

Thanks! We look forward to seeing your teams at SnowCAT.

Congratulations to Wayzata A, SnowCAT champions for another year. They defeated Eden Prairie A 370-145 in the championship game. St. Thomas Academy took third with DeLaSalle right behind them in fourth. Thanks again to all teams for coming and making this year's tournament another success.

Max, you'll want to upload those stats files to the DB here, since you probably don't want us trying to access your desktop.
