Phillips Academy Fall Tournament (PAFT) -- October 22, 2016

Postby Rosie the Riveter » Sat Sep 10, 2016 4:35 pm

Your friends at Andover Quiz Bowl are happy to announce the Phillips Academy Fall Tournament (PAFT) on 22 October, 2016.

REGISTRATION
All high school quiz bowl teams are invited to register. Our current field cap is 24 teams. To register your team, e-mail the number of teams, buzzers, and any supplied staffers to Piper Winkler at pwinkler@andover.edu; she will get back to you as quickly as possible with further instructions for participation in the tournament.

LOGISTICS
PAFT will take place on the Phillips Academy Andover campus (180 Main Street, Andover, Mass). We will run check-in from 8:15 to 8:50 AM outside of Kemper Auditorium (on Chapel Street) before convening for a brief opening meeting that will begin the tournament. We would like to begin game-play around 9:15 in Gelb Science Center. The tournament should end around 5 PM. Teams will play a minimum of ten games, should we reach our field cap.

FORMAT
In every round, each team will have the opportunity to answer twenty questions. The team that answers a given toss-up question correctly will subsequently be given a three-part bonus question to be answered solely by the members of that team. A team may have four active players at a time; up to two alternates are allowed. Schools with seven or more people on a team will be asked to create a second team.

THE SET
PAFT will be using IS-160.

NATIONAL TOURNAMENTS
The top 15% of the field will be qualified for HSNCT. Should all teams in the top 15% of PAFT have already qualified for HSNCT, the top team without HSNCT qualifications will receive those qualifications.

Any small schools that finish in the top 15% of the field will qualify for NAQT’s Small School National Championship Tournament. The top-finishing small school that has not yet qualified will also qualify for SSNCT if it finishes outside of the top 15%.

We are currently seeking PACE certification; no less than 15% and up to 25% of the top teams at PAFT will qualify for PACE-NSC.

FEES
The fees for this tournament are as follows:

+$75 first team from a school
+$70 for each subsequent team
−$5 discount per working buzzer system
−$5 discount per staffer provided

Cash and checks are acceptable forms of payment. Please make all checks out to “Andover Quiz Bowl.”

MISCELLANEOUS
Wear your Halloween costumes.

Again, email pwinkler@andover.edu with any questions. See you there!
