GIT XV at WUSTL--November 13th, 2010

Post by Charbroil » Sat Sep 25, 2010 10:58 pm

Thank you very much to everyone who attended this event. Stats can be found here

**************************************************

The Washington University College Bowl Team will be hosting the fifteenth iteration of its Gateway Invitational Tournament on November 13th, 2010. It will be a mirror of the Delta Burke tournament edited by Chris Borglum.

I, Charles Hang, will be serving as the Tournament Director. To register for the tournament, or if you have any questions, please email us at washuqb@gmail.com.

Time

Tournament check-in will begin at 8:30 AM, morning announcements will be at 9:00, and play will begin at 9:15. The entire tournament (including awards and playoffs) should be over before 5:00. Each team will be guaranteed 8-9 games, and there will be finals as necessary to determine the champion.

Location

The tournament will be taking place in Eads Hall (Building 32 on the map at http://www.wustl.edu/community/visitors ... rthmap.pdf). Parking is plentiful for the event, and any of the major parking lots on the map should be fine.

Registration

To register, please e-mail me at washuqb@gmail.com with the following information:

1/ The Number of teams you will be bringing
2/ The Number of buzzers you will be bringing
3/ The number of players you will have, as well as their names.
4/ The number of staff (moderators and scorekeepers) you will be bringing

All registrations must be received prior to the date of the tournament. Once you register, I will send out all necessary information. Please feel free to share this announcement with any schools that you think would be interested in attending.

Fee Structure

Base fee: $80 for first team, $70 for subsequent teams.
$10 off the base fee for schools per working buzzer system provided
$10 off the base fee for schools per competent staffer*
$5 off the base fee for schools for each 100 miles traveled (one way)
$20 off for teams with 2 or fewer players.
$20 off for teams made up of only high schoolers.

Minimum fee: $50 (unless your team has 2 or fewer players)

Showing up late without getting in touch with me: +$20 penalty.

*To be defined as an individual capable of either reading a 20 tossup, 20 bonus match in under 30 minutes or capable of scorekeeping such a match.

We are, of course, willing to make accommodations if a team has trouble paying and wishes to arrange a payment plan, etc. Checks should be made out to "Washington University Academic Team;" (Not "College Bowl") we can also take cash payments, but greatly prefer payment by check.

High School Staffing Discount

In addition to offering the above discounts for collegiate teams attending this event, we will also be offering a $10 discount to every high school player, coach, or anyone else involved with a high school who volunteers to staff our event, to be applied towards admissions fees for our high school tournament, the Washington University High School Academic Challenge (WUHSAC). We will also offer a $5 discount per 50 miles traveled, one way, for individuals affiliated with high schools traveling 50 or more miles to staff our tournament.

Also, volunteers who bring buzzer sets will be eligible for an additional $10 WUHSAC registration discount per buzzer. We will be offering two such discounts in total.

Eligibility

This tournament is open to all players and all teams (including those from more than one school). This is meant to be a novice tournament, however, so college teams with high caliber veteran players (you know who you are--and if you're not sure, ask me) are strongly recommended to have said players staff.

Questions

The tournament will be using the Delta Burke set, a set of accessible questions geared towards beginner players. For more information, please email Chris Borglum at CBorglum@valenciacc.edu

The Geckos would be.

I'm personally interested, but obviously I need to talk to Charlie before saying anything since I don't have final decision in what we do and don't go to.

Neither does he. I'm the president. :) But for all practical purposes, he's sort of in charge of the college competition aspect of the club lol

I don't think I can play this anymore, sadly. Tech week is starting up that same weekend for the fall musical. :(

People interested in staffing this should let us know at washuqb@gmail.com. Don't forget, if you're affiliated with a high school, your high school team gets $10 off on its WUHSAC entry fee.
