CANCELED: Classic City Classic III @ UGA 10-25-08

Post by cchiego »

Sorry about the lack of communications recently- we've been trying to nail down the details for this tournament for awhile.

The University of Georgia Quizbowl team will be hosting our Third Classic City Classic on the campus of the University of Georgia on Saturday, October 25th. Fees are:
$70 for the 1st team registered
$50 for each subsequent team registered
$-5 for each buzzer (each WORKING buzzer) (up to 3)
$-5 for a competent worker (up to 1, we should have plenty of staff already)
Teams 150+ miles away should contact us about possible travel discounts.

To register, simply send us an email at [email protected] with your school's name, contact info, number of teams, and number of buzzers/workers. If you have any other questions, please feel free to send us an email as well.

Questions will be house written and should be around the difficulty of last year's spring tournament. The distribution is basically typical mACF (albeit with some computational math thrown in), questions should be around 4-5 lines long, and we're definitely up for mirroring these questions anywhere else that needs a fresh set.

Note too that we're still planning on a tournament for Dec. 6th, but since that's an SAT date (not to mention the SEC Championship game) and there were a lot of conflicts last year we're still working out the details of the format and questions.

We hope to see everyone in Athens on a rare non-gameday Saturday.

We had a number of teams drop at the last minute and not enough others sign up, so we unfortunately had to cancel this tournament due to a lack of interest. We will use the question set we produced for our Dec. 6th tournament instead, which will take place as usual.

I wish this had been posted earlier, but all teams who emailed us with the intent of coming as of the weekend were notified via direct email so hopefully nobody shows up on Saturday. Mods, please change the title of this thread to reflect the cancellation. Thanks.
