Tournament by the Sea VI: Duke-ing it out in Athens (3-14-9)

Post by CSQuizJags »

The Cedar Shoals HS Academic team will host Tournament by the Sea VI, Duke-ing it out in Athens, on March 14, 2009, in the CSHS Fine Arts Building, in Athens, Georgia. This is a trash (popular culture) tournament open to anyone from anywhere regardless of collegiate affiliation. While we are still in the talks with another tournament to mirror them for a few packets (EPIC in Minnesota), this is still a packet submission tournament. We are offering a very enticing fee system based on when you submit your packet:

If you hand in your packet BEFORE Jan 15th, your entry fee is $0

If your packet is in between Jan 15 and Jan 30, 2008: $30

If your packet is in between Jan 30 and Feb 15: $40

If your packet is in between Feb 16 and Feb 28: $50

If your packet is in between Mar 1 and Mar 7: $60 (this is also the minimum fee for claiming a packet (plus the no packet fee) as we'll have them by then IF we get to mirror EPIC)

If you packet is in between Mar 7 and Mar 10: $80

If your packet is in after Mar 11: $100

If you decide NOT to write a packet and claim one (if available), add $20 to your total (bminimum $60+$20).

We will also have Mark Franklin and his Time-Life Strife music round. (Hopefully, there will be no tornado warnings...)

If you are interested in attending and want more information, please feel free to contact the team at [email protected].

These are the requirements for the packets:

21 TUs and 23 bonuses (TU 21 should be a viable TU for use in a sudden death tiebreaker- in other words- very gettable.)

In terms of categories, we’ll use the suggested format by Trashmasters:

General distribution guidelines
3 - 4 Movies
3 - 4 TV
3 - 4 Sports
3 - 4 Music
[Note: for the four categories listed above, please make sure you have at least one pre-1990 and at least one post-2000 of each.]
1-3 each:
Consumerama, including food/beverages
Trashy "literature"
0-2 each:
Videogames & computer games
Other games
Trashy current events
Other computer stuff
Comics
Gadgets
Theatre / radio / other media
Road trip effluvium
Broadway
Anything else you think of is fine as long as there are no more than two questions per as-yet-unnamed category.

Sci-fi rule: As science fiction can transcend several of these categories, please limit 1 TU and 1 bonus to a science fiction related topic.

If you wish to make a TU/bonuses donation, let us know via the email above.

I may be dumb or just unaware that this is a common practice that works well, but I think this system bears a little explaining. Because otherwise, I would want to "claim a packet" right now and register for $20 rather than register, with a packet, at the second-earliest packet deadline. Sorry if there's something i'm missing. Does it lie in that there might simply be no packets available?

Good catch there...we've installed a minimum fee to claim a packet PLUS be charged the "no packet" fee ($60+$20). We're still working out the kinks on the new fee system, but in the past we've had a couple of teams either say they would write a packet and then have to claim one at the last minute, thus leaving us with one fewer playoff packet OR turn in a packet the morning of (yes, it's true), which called for HEAVY spot editing and checking. Never again!
