Fill out this form to register your team (Registration Form). Forms should be turned in before the event. Tables will be filled based on when forms are turned in, so don't wait!
1. The most important rule is to have fun. Even though we're competing, we're also doing our bit to help raise money for Alternative Spring Break Trip.
2. The event consists of ten categories of ten questions each. Each question will only be read twice.
3. Teams can have a maximum of 8 players. No spectators. No substitutions.
4. In order to stay on time, complete your question sheets quickly and hold them up to be taken by runners to the scoring tables.
5. It is your responsibility to see that your sheet has been collected. Any sheet turned in after the answers for that category start being announced your team will be receiving zero points for that round.
6. No cell phones. No newspapers, magazines, books or printed matter of any kind. No palmtops, laptops, PDAs or electronic devices of any kind. If we catch you using anything like that, you'll get zero points for that round. If you must make or receive a cell phone call, leave the floor area and approach the judge's table. Otherwise any electronic devices seen will be confiscated for the remainder of the evening.
7. Unless specified otherwise, each answer requires either a number or a date or a specific name of somebody or something. We will not accept general descriptions. Adding explanations of your answer will only confuse the marker.
8. Use the most commonly used form of an answer. If we ask for the female lead in "When Harry Met Sally," we will accept "Meg Ryan" or even "Ryan," but not necessarily "Margaret Hyra" (her birth name).
9. A word of advice ... be economical with your answers and don't show off. There's no extra credit here. This being said, you must answer in enough detail so that similar answers are excluded. If we ask, "Which king of England had six wives?" we will not accept simply "Henry," but would need "Henry VIII," as there were many English kings named Henry. If, however, we ask, "Who was Canada's last Conservative prime minister," we would accept "Campbell" in addition to "Kim Campbell," as no other Campbell is a reasonable possible answer.
10. There are no trick questions. That means we won't accept any trick answers. The questions are written to point to one and only one answer, so pick the best possible answer to each question. Every question has an answer and there are no null answers. If you feel your score is incorrect, or that an answer is incorrect, bring this to the judge's attention, by way of an appeal, as soon as possible. Each round appeal costs $5. If we decide against you - the amount goes to the Foundation. The judge's decisions are absolutely final.
11. We strongly recommend that you write neatly and in block letters. If the marker can't read your answer, the marker won't guess; it will be marked wrong. Spelling doesn't necessarily count, but if it is not phonetically the same, it may not be considered correct. You will be marked wrong if your answer has been spelled in a way that it becomes something different (for example: "Sally Fields" would be marked wrong, as her last name has no S.).
12. Make sure you have one and only one clearly indicated answer, or you will be marked wrong. If you think there is a problem with the question that suggests two answers, choose one. Then appeal if you believe you have been marked wrong.
13. If the final score results is a tie for teams in the top 3 positions, a tie-breaking mechanism will be employed; if one of the tied teams has left the building or cannot be found after reasonable efforts, it will be considered forfeit.
14. There are no age requirements for this event
15. In all cases, the judge's decisions are absolutely final and binding on all parties. Acceptance of the judge's authority is a condition for participating in the Alternative Spring Break Trivia Night.
