Mt. Carmel Invitational (New Orleans, LA; 12/3/16) [IS-162]

Postby Kevin » Tue Oct 18, 2016 5:19 pm

Mount Carmel Academy will be hosting our 3rd annual Mt. Carmel Invitational on Saturday, December 3rd. All high schools are invited to attend. The tournament will use NAQT rules and question set IS-162. Rounds will be untimed 20/20 with no computational math tossups or bonuses. The exact format will depend upon the number of teams, but should guarantee each team 8 or 9 games plus any necessary tiebreakers.

Schedule (subject to change):
Registration: 8:00-8:30
Meeting for players and coaches: 8:40-9:00
Preliminary rounds: 9:00-12:00
Lunch: 12:00-1:00
Individual awards ceremony: 1:00-1:10
Playoff rounds: 1:15-3:30
Trophy ceremony: 3:30-3:45

We will be providing complimentary donuts, milk, and juice in the morning. For lunch, several fast food restaurants are within walking distance (Subway, Smoothie King, Rally's, Pizza Hut), and several others are within a few minutes' drive (Raising Cane's, Wendy's, McDonald's).

The field size will be tentatively capped at 18 teams. This number may increase depending upon the number of readers available.

The base fee for each team is $60. Each school may register up to two teams. There is a $5 discount for bringing a fully functional buzzer system with at least eight working buzzers (limit one buzzer discount per school) and a $10 discount for bringing an experienced reader who can work the entire tournament (no limit on this discount).

Please make checks payable to “Mount Carmel Academy.” You may bring a check or cash on the day of the tournament, or you may mail a check to Mt. Carmel Academy, 7027 Milne Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70124. Please write "quiz bowl" on the envelope or the memo line of the check.

Team trophies will be provided to the winner and runner-up. Individual trophies will be provided to the top 4 individual scorers (based on the results of the preliminary rounds).

Mt. Carmel Academy is located at 7027 Milne Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70124. Please enter the parking lot through the gates on Louisville St.

Do you still have room for one more team in this event? Hoover is interested.

Yes, we can fit in one more team. We are now at our cap, and will be starting a wait list if there are any cancellations.

[edit 11/15]--The cap on field size has been increased to 24 teams.
