Jesuit Tournament Packet
TAB ROOM will be in College Hall 1898 [Note – This is different for those of you who have attended previous tournaments at Gonzaga].
Glen Frappier, Adrienne Brovero, David Cram-Helwich, and Omar Guevara will be onsite administrators. Gary Larsen will be running the tab remotely.
Gary will be using his STA tab system. For anyone who attends NU, Wake and/or the NDT you are familiar with this. You can access pairings and results here: https://wheaton.box.com/v/Gonzaga
That link will go live Saturday morning when the presets (1 and 2) are posted at 7am.
Most of you are familiar with STA but just for clarification it works as follows: Judges will get an email invitation to START their round with all of the necessary info on it. When they are in the room and everyone is present they just reply to that email. It triggers the sending of an actual ballot which you will complete and email back and the end of the debate. So don’t expect to go to tabroom.com and see your ballot, just follow these instructions above.
A campus map can be found here: http://www.gonzaga.edu/About/campus-map.asp
We will use rooms in College Hall, Jepson, Hughes, Paccar and Herak. Please do not use rooms that are not on the pairing. If it is not on the pairing, we likely don't have access to it, or there is another group scheduled to use it. Please check with tabroom before using a room not on the pairing. On Saturday there are actually a lot of room conflicts (for example, all first floor rooms in College Hall will not be available to use during round 3). Please dispose of all food trash in the trash cans in the hallways, not in the rooms or restrooms.
Directions to campus:
If you are a pedestrian from the Red Lion: exit the back of the hotel and walk east along the river path (river will be on your right when walking east). The path will take you under Division Street Bridge, past the River Inn (will be on your left) and then you’ll see campus on your left. Before you get to the Lake (its on campus, can’t miss it) cut north through campus. Easiest way to find College Hall is to look for the spires on top of the St. Als Church. They have big crosses on them and are difficult to miss. College Hall is located next to St. Als.
If you are driving from the Red Lion: turn right out of the hotel parking lot. At the light take a left on Division St. At the next light take a right onto Sharp. Turn right on Addison and you’ll be on campus and will see College Hall directly in front of you.
If you are driving from Courtyard Marriott. Take a right onto Division from hotel complex area and cross the river. At the second light take a right onto Sharp. Turn right on Addison and you’ll be on campus and will see College Hall directly in front of you.
If you are a pedestrian from Courtyard Marriott. Walk across the Division street bridge to cross the river. Immediately after your cross the River take a sharp right as if you were going to go behind the River Inn. You’ll see a little path that leads to the river path (you can see River path when you are crossing the bridge). The path will take you under Division Street, past the River Inn (will be on your left) and then you’ll see campus on your left. Before you get to the Lake (on campus, to your left) cut north through campus. Easiest way to find College Hall is to look for the spires on top of the St. Als Church. They have big crosses on them and are difficult to miss. College Hall is located next to St. Als.
The best place on campus to park is the parking lot directly in front of College Hall. You do not need a parking pass and security will not ticket you even though it’s a marked lot. Since it’s a weekend there should be plenty of parking available in that space.
Not in Buildings (This isn’t the 80s). Gonzaga does not allow smoking (including vaping/e-cigarettes) in any building.
Not Near Entrances (This isn’t the 90s). Washington law requires you stand at least 25 feet from doors or windows when smoking outside. This means DO NOT smoke on the porches/entryways of the buildings. Please move away from the entrances.
Don’t litter our campus with cigarette butts. Most buildings have outdoor ashtrays around each building. Please use them.
Not allowed on campus. While it is true that marijuana is legal in our state, it is not allowed on campus due to restrictions placed on federal funding Gonzaga receives. So feel free to enjoy your freedoms while in our state, just not on campus J
Use the Gonzaga Guest Network. No login information needed. We are also an eduroam campus so that should work for you as well.
Gender Neutral Restrooms
Here is the map of all campus restrooms including those that are designated all gender. http://www.gonzaga.edu/student-life/LGBT-Resource-Center/Campus-Restrooms.asp
Paccaar 001. If you play music in the quiet room please use headphones. Weird I should have to say that.
Sometimes you just have to steal a really good idea (thanks Wake!). We will have a hospitality tent set up on the east end of College Hall on the lawn between College Hall and Desmet Hall. This is where we will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner both on Saturday and Sunday. You will also be able to get coffee, water, tea, and snacks at the hospitality tent throughout the tournament. If you have any preferred snack treats you don’t see please talk to Lauren Johnson and she’ll do her best to accommodate. Sorry, no pour over coffee L
Do not use/touch any technology in rooms, or remove furniture or items from rooms. Please do not place drinks or food on the technology consoles in any room.
We respectfully request that you do not play audio/music in public spaces and when in rooms volume needs to be kept *very* low as there are other groups/classes using these buildings during the weekend. Several professors and administrators are likely on campus working in their offices which are located on the same floors we’ll be using for debates.
Yes, it is happening. Paige Spraker and Dillon Johnson will be coordinating the event. Wear your costumes on Sunday. There will be an online pool throughout the day where you can go and write in your vote for best costume. Winners announced at the Awards ceremony that night.
Awards on Sunday Night
Despite our move to 8 rounds we plan on having our Reception and Awards on Sunday night, although it will be a little later than last year. We will open the reception at 9pm in Ballroom C at the Hotel RL. We’ll serve coffee, beverages, deserts and light appetizers. There will be a bar and drink tickets available for guests who are 21. We’ll start the awards at 10pm so as to accommodate those running late from round 8. We also also ask judges to keep decisions brief in round 8 to facilitate travel to awards. We will keep the awards short and also post the bracket and list of Monday morning judges around the same time. Our hope is to have everything finished by 10:30pm.
