Post by anastasia84 » Mon Dec 05, 2016 10:22 pm

The Johns Hopkins University Quizbowl Team is pleased to announce the first Johns Hopkins University Winter Quizbowl Tournament!

When and Where
Johns Hopkins University, on Saturday, February 11th, 2017. Registration starts at 8:00 am and the tournament will begin at 9:00 am. The tournament will take place on the JHU Homewood campus in Gilman Hall, Maryland Hall, Shaffer Hall, and Ames Hall, with the control room in Shaffer 3.

Format
This tournament will follow official NAQT rules (which can be viewed at http://www.naqt.com/rules.html) with slight modifications on timing.

Question Set
We will be using NAQT Invitational Series #158. Per the NAQT qualification rules, the top 15% of the field will qualify for the NAQT High School National Championship Tournament (HSNCT). Additionally, this tournament is Platinum Certified by PACE, meaning that the top 25% of the field will qualify for the PACE NSC.

Team Entry Fees
$70 per team (minimum of $40 after discounts applied), either cash or check only. Please bring payment on the day of the tournament. Checks should made payable to "Johns Hopkins University."

Discounts
-$20 for staffers, -$5 per working buzzer set.

Food
Pizza will be sold near lunch time, and various restaurants may be found in the vicinity of Johns Hopkins. To see a full list, please visit http://web.jhu.edu/cogsci/visitors/restaurants.html.

Parking
Parking is available at the South Garage, at the flat rate of $8 for the entire day.

Team & Roster Size
There is a maximum of 6 players and a minimum of 1 player on each team - no exceptions without explicit permission from the tournament director. Up to four members may play at once. We recommend no more than four members on a team, so that students may play the maximum number of rounds.

Team Cap
The field is tentatively capped at 24 teams. (Note: this has been changed from the original 30 teams).

Registration Deadline
Please email achang58@jhu.edu by February 3rd and indicate the number of teams, number of buzzers, number of potential staffers. Please include "Johns Hopkins Quizbowl Tournament Registration" in the subject line.

Questions?
Don't hesitate to ask! Direct your questions to achang58@jhu.edu.

Congrats to Centennial A for winning the tournament!

Stats have been posted here:http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/4115/.
The playoff stats include the morning games for each bracket. Due to Maret leaving and Gar-Field B splitting into two teams, the playoffs may seem a bit disorganized - we've tried our best to make it as neat as possible.
If you find any errors in our stats, please contact me at achang58@jhu.edu.

Some schools (Bullis, C. Milton Wright, Georgetown Prep, Washington Latin) have requested receipts - we'll have those ready by tonight. If anyone else would like a receipt, please email me.

Thank you all for coming!
