White Station High School Quiz Bowl Tournament (10/29/16)

Post by tara.sandlin » Fri Oct 07, 2016 9:43 pm

White Station High School in Memphis, Tennessee will be hosting a quiz bowl tournament on Saturday, October 29, 2016. Details can be found below.

Location: White Station High School (514 S Perkins Rd, Memphis, TN 38117), specifically in the Freshman Academy. This building is located on the south end of our campus right next to Walgreens and the Believing Church.

Date: October 29, 2016

Rules: 20/20 untimed

Question Packet: IS-160, provided by NAQT.

Times: Registration begins at 8:30; morning rounds begin at 9:00, and lunch will begin around noon (since rounds are not timed, different matches may release at slightly different times). After morning rounds, the top 8 teams are announced and are given room assignments for the afternoon rounds.

Tournament Layout: The morning is round-robin style, and the afternoon consists of the top 8 teams in single-elimination rounds

Tournament Fee: $65 per team with a $5 discount for bringing a working buzzer system* and a $5 discount for every 50 miles driven (one-way). Make checks out to White Station High School, please. The limit for discounts is $15, so no matter how many buzzers a team brings or miles a team drives, that team must pay a minimum of $50 to participate in the tournament.

Notes: There will be a debate tournament held on campus the same date as the quiz tournament. We hope this is not a huge conflict for your team, and if you are able to attend, we strongly suggest parking in the lot nearest the Freshman Academy. Signs will be posted to help direct all of our guests to the correct location.

*Working is defined as a lock-out system with at least 8 buzzers and a power cord. Please do not bring a buzzer if it doesn't work.

Please contact us at wshsqb@gmail if you are interested. Thanks!
