VCU Trash Day (Richmond, VA) - 03/15/2014

This is the general announcement for the VCU mirror of 2014 Ottawa Hybrid Tournament and OhioTRASH2014, to be hosted at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, on Saturday, March 15, 2013 from 9am to about 6pm. As with all trash tournaments, this is an open, so teams do not have to be composed of players from one college. More information about Ottawa Hybrid can be viewed at the original announcement for the tournament.

Location, directions & parking:
The tournament will likely take place in Grace E. Harris Hall, located at the intersection of Main Street and Harrison Street, in Richmond, Virginia. One will want to park either on the street, or in the West Main Street Parking Deck, which has entrances on Cherry Street and Laurel Street and is nominally located at 801 W Main St. A campus map is accessible here.

Registration & fees:
base fee: $80
buzzer discount: -$5
staffer discount: -$10
travel discount: -$10 per 200 miles one-way as determined by Google Maps (limit 2)

The minimum fee is $40.

The $80 registration fee is a flat fee that allows you to play both sets. You do not get a discount for playing one set or the other. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Matt's Buzzers in accordance with the wishes of the producers of the OhioTRASH set.

To register, you must e-mail me at [email protected] with the number of teams, buzzers, and staffers you intend to bring, an email address where you can be contacted with details, and a mobile phone number in case I need to contact you the morning of the tournament. Feel free to share this announcement with any schools that you think would be interested in attending. There is no further registration form or other action needed on your part in order to be officially registered; you only need to e-mail me at that address with the information requested. Posts made in this thread will not be considered official registrations; you must e-mail me.

Method of payment:
All teams must pay by the day of the tournament. We prefer to accept payment in person right before the tournament starts, but we will accept checks by mail ahead of time if your procedures require it. Teams who do not pay by the day of the tournament will be charged a $25 penalty and will have two weeks to pay their total amount before we start mailing letters to your school administration about it.

We can accept cash, personal checks, or checks from school, school district, or quizbowl club funds. We have no ability to process purchase orders, credit cards, Paypal, or any other forms of payment. Bringing forms of payment outside of the three listed will be considered nonpayment and subject you to the $25 late payment penalty.

All checks must be made out to "Quizbowl at VCU". If you bring a check not made out to "Quizbowl at VCU" and have no other method of paying for the tournament, you will be subject to the $25 late payment penalty.

If you require a pre-tournament invoice in order to have a check cut, let us know by March 1, so that we can send you the paperwork in time. If you do not let us know about this requirement by March 1, and it causes you to come to the tournament without your payment, then you will be subject to the $25 late payment penalty.

Team & roster size:
There may be a maximum of six players on one team's roster, up to four of whom may play at one time. There will be no exceptions to this rule. If you bring more than six players, you must register a second team to have all of them play. There is a halftime substitution opportunity in each game. Each player may appear on only one team's roster throughout the day-no switching from the B team to the A team, etc.

Food:
Neither breakfast nor lunch will be provided by the tournament. We will provide a list of suggested eateries for the lunch break.

Dave Porter is interested in bringing a mixed team. If I am unable to get a team together, I am available as a free agent, since I am already in Richmond.

This is over my spring break, so I'd be interested in finding a team to play with.

Just so you guys know - the set is written for high school players, so I would expect most good college trash players to tear it apart. That said, it should still be pretty fun for anybody that wants to play it.

Are both Ottawa Hybrid Tournament and OhioTRASH2014 high school level?

It's advertised at something between Fall and Regionals, but may contain an obscene amount of Canadian content.

Do you have to have submitted a packet to Ottawa Hybrid to play this mirror? I'd definitely like to play since I get back to the DC area the day before.

No teams at our mirror are required to write packets for OHT to play.

It appears there was a serious error when uploading stats the first go 'round. This should be corrected.
