Triton Winter IV @ UCSD-02/01/2014 [BELLOCO]

Post by Jason Cheng »

UCSD is pleased to announce the fourth iteration of Triton Winter on February 1st, 2014

QUESTIONS: We are mirroring the 2014 BELLOCO set, written by Bellarmine High School. Information about the set can be found here.

LOCATION: 9500 Gilman Dr., La Jolla, California, 92093.
We are most likely using our usual spot at the Humanities and Social Sciences Building. We will send out additional information to registered teams as the tournament approaches, both by contact email and through the HSQuizBowl forum thread and this post.

TIME: Please check in before 9:00 AM. The tournament should end around 5 PM and end no later than 6 PM.

FORMAT: We plan to run a format of initial round-robins followed by a playoff in regrouped round-robins. Matches will be 20 pyramidal tossups and up to 20 bonuses.

REGISTRATION: To register, please email [email protected] with the following information:
1) Your school's name
2) Number of teams you are bringing
3) The number of buzzer systems you will bring
4) Any moderators you have to offer
5) Price you are expecting to pay, after subtracting relevant discounts.
6) Emergency contact information

Please officially register only after you are fairly certain you'll be able to come; having teams dropping out 24 hours before the tournament or not showing up at all complicates things considerably, and prevents us from providing you with a quality experience. Letting us know that you're interested is encouraged, however, if you can't commit to registration just yet. Our field cap has yet to be determined, due to an unclear number of rooms and moderators. Because of tentative room availability, we are currently capping the number of teams a school is allowed to send to 4. This limit may be adjusted upwards as the tournament date approaches and we have a clearer grasp of available resources.

Teams will be allowed to have 5 players total, so 4 players and one alternate. When you check in for TWT in the morning, we will hand you a roster sheet where you will finalize . Subsequent roster changes are fine, but the more information we have now, the better.

PRICING STRUCTURE:
Base fee (first team): $80
Second team and subsequent teams from the same school: $60
*Teams in difficult financial situations should contact us directly to discuss possible options

Discounts:
-$20 per competent moderator
-$10 per competent scorekeeper
-$5 per buzzer system
-$5 per 50 miles traveled, one-way, as judged by Google Maps from your school to UCSD

Updates shall be sent out through contact email, the HSQuizBowl Forums, and http://www.socalquizbowl.org. Please contact tournament directors Vicky Hwang and Jason Cheng at [email protected] if you have any questions. We'd love to have you join us at UCSD for an exciting day of quizbowl!
