ICT Warmup at UIUC

Post by Charlie Dees » Thu Feb 14, 2008 1:21 am

What is going on here?

This is an announcement regarding the University of Illinois Academic Buzzer Team's mirror of the ICT Warm-up. I am Trygve Meade, and I will serve as the tournament director. This is a tournament being written by Matt Weiner with help from Jerry Vinokurov that will be played using NAQT style rules and questions. Packets will be timed, and the distribution will be roughly similar to what you can expect for Division I at the NAQT ICT. There is no packet submission solicited or required for this tournament.

How much will it cost me to play in this tournament?

+$100 – Base Fee per team.
-$10 – Discount for 2nd team, and all teams after from the same school.
-$5 – Buzzer discount per school.
-$20 – Staff discount (either moderating or scorekeeping) per school.
-$5 – Clock discount per school (i.e. a clock you would see at a time NAQT match).
-$10 – Travel discount per team for traveling over 200 miles one way to the tournament.

Minimum Fee per Team: $60.

But I'm not affiliated with a college, or maybe I'd like to play on a bastard team. Can I still play?

Anyone is welcome and invited to compete in this tournament. It is open to high schoolers, college students, coaches, and those not affiliated with any school. If you're a high school and want a challenging tournament to play that will prepare you for the HSNCT, please e-mail me; it may be the case that this tournament will serve your need. We will be giving prizes to the top team that has members that all qualify for Division II. If there are many teams that qualify for division two that register, we may consider running a separate division for them to play in, although the question set will not differ from the rest of the field.

Who should I get in touch with to sign up for this?

To register for this tournament, please e-mail tournament director Trygve Meade at tmeade2@uiuc.edu. Please indicate how many teams you are bringing and any discounts you think you qualify for, as well as if any of your teams qualify as DII so that we can determine whether there will be demand for a separate field.

Also, if you're interested in helping to staff this tournament, please let me know. Since this is a timed tournament, we would like to have scorekeepers in each room. We might have to limit the number of teams that we take depending on our staff, so please register early. I'll post more details as the date approaches.

See you in April,
Trygve Meade
Tournament Director

I talked to Trygve yesterday and apparently the field is finalized at 10 with the Missouri representatives being from S&T and 2 Wash U teams. He said it's going to just be a combined field since there are 3 less division 2 teams than there were a couple days ago. Anyway, it sounds like it should be a good time.

Our team will actually be D2-eligible after all, if it makes a difference.

Good luck guys, see you there. I should get some sleep, since I plan to wake up in an hour and half for this...
