Hello friends!

The Case Western Reserve University Quizbowl Club and I would like to invite you to the Great Lakes Regional Academic Championship (GLRAC) on Saturday March 23rd on our Cleveland campus. For years, this tournament has delivered fun yet challenging academic competition to all levels of experience in Northeast Ohio and we look to do the same this year!

We will be using the Yale BHSAT XVIII set, written for use this spring by members of the Yale Quizbowl Team. Traditionally, this set runs at about regular high-school difficulty to high-school difficulty plus. For more information on the set itself, please visit the following forum post published by Yale at the following link: http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic. ... 09&t=21465

We will be implementing a soft cap at 16 teams, with the capacity to expand pending staffers and room availability. Registration will open at 8:15am, with an opening announcement at 8:45am prior to competition beginning promptly at 9:00am. Midway through the tournament there will be time for a lunch break, followed by competition and a closing meeting. We will be shooting for all competition to be done at 4:30pm. We are guaranteeing 8 rounds of competition, with the final number of rounds set once registration closes on Monday March 18th.

The tournament will take place in Sears Hall, which is located on the quad south of Euclid Ave. We suggest that teams park within Veale Garage, which is about a 5 minute walk from Sears. More information about location, parking, and other logistics will be relayed the week of the tournament. If you will be coming via bus and need special accommodation, please let me know as soon as possible so we can find parking for you!

Fee Structure:
Base Fee: $60
Additional Teams: $50
Buzzer Systems: -$5 (limit 2 buzzers)
Experienced Staffer Discount: -$10 (must email Andy ahead of time - ash114@case.edu)
Distance Discount: -$10 if over 150 miles one way (from HS address to CWRU campus via Google Maps) or from a state other than Ohio
Minimum Fee (per team): $30

Payment can be made through cash or check, made out to Hunter Stecko (our treasurer) with "CWRU Quizbowl" in the memo.

Please email me (ash114@case.edu) with the number of teams you plan on bringing as well as any discounts that you intend to use by the end of registration on Monday March 18th. Thank you and we hope to see you at CWRU on 3/23!
