ANNOUNCEMENT: Fall Novice mirror at Brandeis, 11/21

Post by Not That Kind of Christian!! »

This is the official announcement of the Fall Novice mirror at Brandeis University, to take place November 21! We look forward to hosting you on our campus. Information on the set can be found in the following thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=7928&start=0

TO REGISTER
Please e-mail me at [email protected].

TIME
Teams should begin to arrive at 8:00 a.m. for check-in, and there will be a short staff meeting at 8:30 a.m. Games will begin promptly at 9:00.

LOCATION
The tournament will be held on the Brandeis University campus, which is accessible by public transportation as well as by car. Maps and details on room location will be provided closer to the tournament date.

FEE STRUCTURE:
A fee of $65 will be charged for the first team, with $60 for each subsequent team. A moderator discount of $10 and a buzzer discount of $10 also apply. Teams new to quizbowl will receive an additional $10 discount. Additionally, teams can sign up for a lunch of pizza and soda rather than leave campus during the lunch break, price to be announced.

ENTRANCE RESTRICTIONS
This tournament is intended for beginning players; therefore, players who have competed in the NSC or HSNCT tournaments are ineligible for competition. There are no other entrance restrictions.

Good to hear. Do you know how many teams and buzzers you would be bringing?

We are planning on bringing 1 or 2 teams and no buzzer systems.

Just a timing update: Because of the small field (unless other teams want to sign up, which I would be absolutely fine with!), it is not necessary that teams arrive until 8:30 a.m. I am confident that we will still be able to begin by 9.

Not to be too much of a wet blanket, but unfortunately Simsbury isn't too interested in making the 2 hour drive if the field is only 4 teams and many people on our team are unable to come due to unrelated reasons. Our apologies.

Thanks to everyone who came! We played a triple round-robin with four teams, and Concord-Carlisle came out on top. Results can be found at http://results.scobo.net/brandeisquizbowl/fallnovice

1. Kai from MIT and Dennis Loo from the Harvard townie brigade were a major help.
2. This set was extraordinarily readable. Thank you to its editors and copy editors.
