Re-posting Raymond’s HSQB announcement:
McMaster is pleased to announce the return of our high school tournament MacIntro on Oct. 22, 2016.
Continuing the tradition of last year, this tournament is intended to be an introduction for new players and teams in the region to the format of Quizbowl. We will be using the SCOP Novice 7 set. We are hoping for at least 5 or 6 teams, obviously the more the merrier.
Location: McMaster University Student Centre (MUSC)
Cost: The base fee for this tournament is set at $40 per team.
Discounts: To lower the costs of potentially cash-strapped teams and to encourage teams to invest in a buzzer system, we are offering a $10 discount per appropriate, working buzzer set (Note: This is a first come first serve discount. If we already have buzzers provided by other teams and do not use the one provided by your school, you are not eligible for the discount). We are also offering a $5 discount per shorthanded player (i.e. if you have a two player team, your team will pay only $30).
Timing: Please arrive at McMaster by 8:45am, we are hoping for a 9:15am start. Depending on the size of the field, the tournament should likely be done by 4pm.
Lunch: Please either pack your own lunch, or bring money to buy lunch on campus. There are numerous options available for food nearby which a McMaster quizbowl member will be happy to direct you towards.
For registration and additional information, please contact the TD, Peter Cordeiro (firstname.lastname@example.org), myself (email@example.com), or the McMaster Quizbowl Club (firstname.lastname@example.org). We hope to see you there!
Our note: This tournament will be played on a Canadian edition questions set created by the SCOP organization. This set will also be used at the SCOP Novice 7 mirror in Ottawa.
