Lehigh Valley Academy 10/28/17 [IS-169A]

Postby Antrobus63 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 11:51 pm

LVA will host its second annual QB tournament on Saturday, October 28.

Our first tournament went off without a hitch; we look forward to building on that success this year. If you have any questions, please write Peter Schmidt at Academicteam@lvacademy.org.

Lehigh Valley Academy is located at 1560 Valley Center Pkwy, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania 18017, right off Route 22.

Check-in will take place from 7:30am to 8:20am, with meetings at 8:30 and Round 1 starting at 9 a.m. Each team will be guaranteed at least 8 games. The tournament should wrap up between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m.

We will be using NAQT Introductory-level set, IS-169A.

The field will be divided into two groups: Experienced and Novice level. Only Experience teams will be able to qualify for HSNCT and PACE, both of whom should be certifying the tournament for nationals qualification. When we have that information, we will post the exact number of qualifying slots available.


To register, please post on this thread or e-mail me at Academicteam@lvacademy.org.

The tentative field cap is 28 teams, but we hope to extend the field to 32 if more teams commit by October 1. Until that point, we will put additional teams on a waitlist.

There is a three-team limit per school, and a six-player limit per team. Schools cannot swap members between teams during the tournament.


Team 1: $70
Teams 2-3: $60 each
Team limit: 3 teams per school
* Please indicate which teams are Experienced and which are Novice.
Buzzer discount: $5 per working buzzer system
Moderator discount: $25 per experienced moderator (Yes: $25--we want moderators)
First-time QB tournament discount: $10 per team
Minimum fee per team: $45

We will start invoicing teams in early-September and expect to receive payment by October 7. Teams paying after that date must add an extra $10 late fee. Teams who do not submit payment by October 18 will be replaced by waitlist teams.


There are several restaurants and fast food places close by. We will sell sodas and snacks, but have not decided about pizza yet.

If it were not a conflict with the NJ Northern History Bee & Bowl, St. Joe's would have been delighted to attend. We just wanted you to know this, and we wish you well in your tournament.

Thanks very much, Ed. Yes, the 28th is a loaded date in our area... but there were conflicts in-state on both the 21st and the 28th and I had to choose the lesser of two evils. Hopefully, I will see you and your new team soon.
