Postby Important Bird Area » Fri Mar 17, 2017 2:48 pm

The Northern California Quiz Bowl Alliance and Berkeley Quiz Bowl are pleased to announce that Berkeley will host the 2017 NAQT Northern California State Championship on Saturday, April 15, 2017.

Location: This tournament will take place at UC Berkeley. The precise building will be determined closer to the date of the tournament.

Questions: We will be using NAQT Invitational Series #166. No computational math will be read.

The top 15% of teams will qualify for the 2017 NAQT High School National Championship Tournament, to be held May 27-28 in Atlanta, Georgia.

This tournament will be applying for certification from PACE to qualify teams for the 2017 National Scholastic Championship, to be held June 10-11 near Chicago.

Eligibility: All high schools (public, private, charter, religious, homeschool, etc.) are eligible to play in this event.

Schools are encouraged to enter multiple teams, but please note that players must play for the same team throughout the tournament.

Fees:

Base fee: $80 per team

$10 discount: second or subsequent team from the same school

$10 discount per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)

$20 discount per experienced moderator

$10 discount per scorekeeper (We will hold a brief training session during check-in for those volunteers who have never kept score before.)

$30 discount: new to quizbowl (your school played no pyramidal tournaments before September 1, 2016)

$20 discount: teams that travel 60 or more miles one-way (distance measured from your high school to UC Berkeley by Google Maps)

Payment will be taken at check-in on April 15th. Please make checks out to "Quiz Bowl Club."
