4.9.17 - JHU Blue Jay Bowl, Baltimore, MD

Postby Michael Shang » Wed Feb 15, 2017 4:38 pm

The Johns Hopkins University Quizbowl Team is pleased to announce the third annual Spring Tournament, rechristened the JHU Blue Jay Bowl!

When and Where

Johns Hopkins University, on Sunday, April 9th, 2017. Registration starts at 7:30 am and will occur in Gilman 50, and the tournament will begin at 8:30 am. Rounds will take place in Hodson Hall.

Format
This tournament will follow official NAQT rules (which can be viewed at http://www.naqt.com/rules.html) with slight modifications on timing.

Question Set
We will be using NAQT Invitational Series #164. Per the NAQT qualification rules, the top 15% of the field will qualify for the NAQT High School National Championship Tournament (HSNCT). Additionally, this tournament is Platinum Certified by PACE, meaning that the top 25% of the field will qualify for the PACE NSC.

Team Entry Fees
$75 per team (minimum of $40 after discounts applied), either cash or check only. Please bring payment on the day of the tournament. Checks should made payable to "Johns Hopkins University."

Discounts
-$20 for staffers, -$5 per working buzzer set.

Food
Pizza will be sold near lunch time, and various restaurants may be found in the vicinity of Johns Hopkins. To see a full list, please visit http://web.jhu.edu/cogsci/visitors/restaurants.html.

Parking
Parking is available at the South Garage, at the flat rate of $8 for the entire day.

Team & Roster Size

There is a maximum of 6 players and a minimum of 1 player on each team - no exceptions without explicit permission from the tournament director. Up to four members may play at once. We recommend no more than four members on a team, so that students may play the maximum number of rounds.

Team Limit
Until two weeks prior to the registration deadline (March 20, 2017), only three teams from a school may register for the JHU Blue Jay Bowl; subsequent teams (up to an additional three, for six total) from the same school will be placed on the waitlist. Following March 20, 2017, any fourth through sixth teams from that school on the waitlist will be moved off of the waitlist and registered (assuming that there are spots still open).

Team Cap
The field is tentatively capped at 24 teams.

Registration Deadline
Please email mshang1@jhu.edu by April 3rd and indicate the number of teams, number of buzzers, number of potential staffers. Please include "Johns Hopkins Quizbowl Tournament Registration" in the subject line. Note that simply expressing interest will not be considered registration. By April 3rd, please also provide us with a tentative roster - it can be changed it later, but having a roster just makes our stats person's job much easier.

Timeline
Just in summary, here are all the important dates:
March 20th: Multiple team deadline (see above)
April 3rd: Registration and roster deadline
April 9th: Tournament day

Questions?
Don't hesitate to ask! Direct your questions to mshang1@jhu.edu.
