ACRONYM 11 @ HSNCT - Friday Night

Postby InvadErGII » Thu Dec 07, 2017 12:10 pm

Play Quiz Bowl is pleased to announce that a mirror of ACRONYM 11 will be held as a part of the 2017 HSNCT weekend. The tournament will take place on Friday, May 25th - note that is is different from previous years. Like last year, the tournament will be split into two divisions: high school, for all-HS teams, and an "open" division for teams composed of staffers, coaches, etc. High school teams are welcome to register for the open division if they wish. Check-in will begin at 4pm, with the opening meeting starting at 5pm games starting shortly thereafter. While the schedule will not be finalized until much closer to the event, our intention is to give teams a bye during preliminary rounds, in which they can get checked in for HSNCT itself. Additionally, the plan is for this tournament to be certain to end at a reasonable time (likely 11pm) so that all participants can rest up for Saturday.

Registration for this tournament is open here. You can view the current field here. Registration requires some sort of team and affiliation on the NAQT website, but you are free to make up an ad-hoc school/association for this purpose.

Fees will be as follows:

Base fee: $90 per team
$10 discount per working buzzer system
$20 discount per moderator
Maximum total discount: $30

This'll need a handful of staffers, so if you'd like to do that (and get paid $20 to do so), you can sign up here.

How will this impact scrimmage rounds?

HSNCT details page wrote:In light of the ACRONYM popular-culture tournament taking place at the same time, scrimmages will be scaled back in scope from previous years. In particular, the number of rounds per team will be limited in a manner yet to be determined.
