The UCLA College Bowl Club is pleased to announce it will be hosting TWAIN XI on NAQT’s IS-96, Subtitle forthcoming.
DATE: Saturday, October 2nd, 2010
PARKING: Parking is $10 at various lots throughout the UCLA campus.
VENUE: TBD on UCLA’s campus
8:00 A.M. – 8:30 A.M.: Registration Period (All teams must be accounted for by 8:30 A.M. PST)
8:30 A.M. – 9:00 A.M.: Rules Meeting / Moderator Meeting
9:00 A.M.: Tournament Play
Around 1:00 P.M.: Lunch
2:00 P.M.: Afternoon Play -> Playoffs
Breakfast: TBA – Likely will be just juice, maybe some mini muffins.
Lunch: Lunch is available on-campus. Hours of Operation vary for each dining option, but Ackerman Union is definitely open during the weekend.
ELIGIBILITY: All high school teams are eligible.
FORMAT: Twenty tossup-bonus cycles, with negs and powers from IS-96. Computational math may be included if a majority of teams desire it.
Base fee = $80 per team
-$5 for a fully-functional buzzer system (Must have four working buzzers on both sides)
-$20 New School Discount (must not have played in any pyramidal tournament as a school since September 1, 2008)
-$10 for a moderator or staff member (The TD has the right to accept or reject the moderator and also reserves the right to withdraw the discount retroactive to payment.)
+$10 for a paper copy of the questions
***NEW SELF SUFFICIENCY DISCOUNT***
Provide 1 team, 1 moderator and 1 buzzer, $50 and includes 1 copy of questions for the school.
Minimum fee: $50 per team
The field will be capped at 16 teams unless there is excessive demand complimented by excessive resources. We hope that many teams will take advantage of the self sufficiency discount so we can use both a score-keeper and a moderator in most rooms, and have a dedicated stats-person. In order to ensure a smooth tournament I will not expand the field until we have enough staff known.
WARNING! If you cannot have payment by tournament date, please contact the TD with at least 24 hours notice. If you arrive without warning of delinquent payment to tournament, we will assess a $50 penalty to be paid immediately in addition to the regular payment, which must be received by us within ten business days. Checks should be made out to “College Bowl Club of UCLA”. Please do NOT change this wording. For reasons of financial security, if possible, please bring the check to the tournament rather than mailing it in advance.
REGISTRATION: The TD for this tournament is Ian Drayer. The current registration deadline is Monday September 27th at 5 PM. If you are planning to come, please e-mail idrayer@ucla(dot)edu with:
1) Your school’s name

Note: Please use TWAIN in the subject line of any e-mails so my auto-filter picks them up and puts all TWAIN e-mails in the same folder so I have easy access to organization.
