WINTER @ Westview High School (12/15/18) - San Diego, CA

Post by vrohan » Sat Oct 20, 2018 1:24 am

Westview High School is pleased to announce WINTER (Westview Invitational Novice Tournament for Earth Residents), a middle school tournament directed by Rohan Venkateswaran.

QUESTION SET: The tournament will be using NAQT’s MS-28 set, a regular middle school difficulty question set.

DATE/TIME: The tournament will take place on Saturday, 15 December, 2018. Check-in will begin at 8:15 A.M., and matches will begin promptly at 9:00 A.M.

LOCATION: The tournament will take place on the campus of Westview High School, located at 13500 Camino del Sur, San Diego, CA 92129. Vehicles may park in either lot and persons may enter the campus through the front gates. Matches will take place in the classrooms in the J and L buildings. A map of the campus can be found here.

REGISTRATION: Teams must register by emailing wvhsqb@gmail.com with the following information: (1) the school's name, (2) the number of teams, (3) the number of buzzers, (4) the number of moderators. There is no team limit until further notice. Registrations will be confirmed with a reply email. Replying to this thread will not register a team. The registration fee may be paid on-site with either cash or check. Please make all checks payable to Westview ASB, with Westview Quizbowl noted.
We will be implementing a soft field cap of 24 teams for this tournament until we are sure that we have enough staff to accommodate more.

ELIGIBILITY:
All middle school teams are welcome to participate in this tournament.

PRICING:
Schools that did not play any tournaments in the 2017-2018 season will pay the minimum fee of $40 per team.

$70 for the first team
$60 for subsequent teams

DISCOUNTS:
- $5 per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)
- $10 per experienced moderator
- $5 per 50 miles traveled one-way per school

Minimum fee: $40 per team

TOURNAMENT FORMAT:
Teams will be allowed to have up to 6 players, but only 4 players can play at one time. Teams with more than 6 players will be asked to split into two teams. Teams will only be allowed to make substitutions at halftime.
We will be using official NAQT rules, with the exception that matches will be run as untimed halves of ten questions each. In addition, ACF rules will be followed regarding timing. A preliminary round robin in the morning will be followed by round robin playoffs in the afternoon based on win-loss records. Ties will be resolved on the basis of points per game (PPG) within brackets, and ties crossing different brackets will be resolved on the basis of win-loss records and points per bonus (PPB).

FOOD: A light breakfast will be provided in the lobby, and eateries exist within a comfortable 5-10 minute walking distance of the campus. Food options include places such as Cotijas, Rubio’s, PizzaRev, Pick Up Stix, Luna Grill, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Fresco, etc.

INQUIRIES: Any inquiries can be resolved through emailing wvhsqb@gmail.com.

November 18: We have reached our initial field cap of 24 teams. I am willing to raise it to 28 if we have enough teams on the wait list.

November 26: The field cap has been raised to 28 teams. If enough teams register, I will move it up to 30, but that would probably be the highest it'd go.

November 27: The field cap has moved up to 30. I could possibly increase it to 32, but that'd definitely be the final field size.
