The Charter School of Wilmington is pleased to announce its mirror of FACTS, which will be held on Saturday, January 27th, 2018.

QUESTION SET:
The tournament will be run using FACTS, a house-written, regular-plus difficulty high school set. Details for the set are available here.

LOGISTICS:

The tournament will be held at the Charter School of Wilmington (100 North Dupont Rd, Wilmington, DE, 19807). Registration will begin at 8:00 AM. Pizza will also be available for order during registration, which we will follow with an opening meeting. We will recap rules and explain the morning schedule during the opening meeting. We hope to have teams in rooms for round 1 by 9:00 AM.

We plan to run a schedule of 6 rounds in the morning, in preliminary pools of 6, with a round robin format. Each team will play a total of 5 rounds before lunch. The top 2 teams from each bracket will proceed to higher tiered playoffs, and the remaining teams will play consolation matches in the afternoon, with every team guaranteed a minimum of 10 rounds.

We will impose a soft field cap of 36, but this may be increased depending on buzzer and moderator availability.

FEES:
Registration fees per team:
$80 for schools that regularly participate in pyramidal quizbowl
$45 for schools that are new to pyramidal quizbowl (defined as any team that hasn’t participated in pyramidal quizbowl tournaments for at least 2 years)

DISCOUNTS:
In addition to the discounts mentioned below, authors of packets accepted for use in the final FACTS question set will receive discounts as documented in the initial forum post, which can be found here.

Further discounts include:
-$5 per each fully functional buzzer set
-$10 for experienced moderators
-$10 for teams traveling over 150 miles (one way distance via Google Maps)

Minimum fees:
-$15 for experienced teams which submitted a packet.
-$30 for new teams.
-$45 for experienced teams which did not write a packet.

Registration fees can be paid through cash or by check. Checks should be made to The Charter School of Wilmington with Academic Bowl on the memo line. We will process your registration fee and provide your team with an invoice by lunch. While payment the day of the tournament is preferable, we will accept payment through the mail. Mail should be addressed to The Charter School of Wilmington, with Academic Bowl on the memo line, at 100 N. Dupont Rd, Wilmington, DE, 19807

Please register here.

If you have any questions, feel free to email charterquiz@gmail.com. We hope to see you there!
