Bloomfield HS NJ Tournament 3/7/15 IS #144

Post by chalpin » Wed Jan 28, 2015 11:42 am

Hello everyone! We Survived Juno and are still suffering through Deflategate!

I am pleased to announce that Bloomfield High School in Bloomfield, NJ, will be hosting its annual tournament - this year on Saturday, March 7, 2015.

SET: We are going to be using NAQT set IS-144
TEAMS: We can physically host up to 30 teams. However, we are going to have a soft cap at 26 teams and, if sufficient demand warrants and we are able to secure sufficient readers and buzzers, will up the number of teams. Initially, I will take a cap of 3 teams per school and, by February 7, one month before the tournament, will put all additional teams per school into the field. For the moment, all teams beyond 3 will be put on the wait list.

ROUNDS: We are planning on a round robin of preliminary rounds (depending on number of teams) followed by lunch and then playoffs to follow. We aim to let each team have at least 10 rounds.

START TIME: Check in/registration between 8:30-9 with a moderator meeting at 8:45 and a welcome at 9 with round 1 to start at 9:15. We aim to be done with the tournament by 6:00.

FOOD: A great, high quality bagel (with butter and cream cheese) and orange juice breakfast will be provided free of charge. We will be selling pizzas in the morning (order them that morning upon arriving to check in) at $12 per pie (please bring cash and as close to exact change as possible), as well as selling slices, waters, sodas, home-made baked goods, and other food/snacks throughout the day, most all of which will cost $1 each. This is our team fundraiser so we would appreciate your support!

FEES:
$90 for the first team
$80 for each additional team from the same school
Discounts of $10 for each moderator (as needed) and $10 for each buzzer set (as needed)
Max discount of $45 per school

HOW TO REGISTER: Please send an email to me to me at chalpin8@gmail and I will email you the registration form. The registration form is attached as well! Once I receive the registration it confirms your attendance and registration as well as how many (if any) buzzer systems and/or moderators you will be able to bring. Information/field updates will also be posted and updated on this hsquizbowl.org forum here so please check/monitor this. Please understand that posting on the forum does not constitute officially registering nor any official communication with the team. Email is the best way to communicate any possible concerns or questions.

PAYMENT: Please make all checks out to "Bloomfield High School Academic Team" and have them mailed by March 2 to the tournament or mail to the below address at my (Colleen E. Halpin) attention. Please try to make sure that payment is in by tournament time. If you require a pre-tournament invoice in order to have a check cut, please let us know ASAP or by February 13 so that we can send you the invoice in sufficient time.
Bloomfield High School is located at 160 Broad Street Bloomfield, NJ 07003. We're close to major interstates and only a 1/2 hour drive to Manhattan.
Looking forward to seeing you in March!
PS: I would like to give a huge thank you to Guy Rabner from Livingston High School for instructing me on what I need to do!

We're live from Bloomfield. Some of you might remember me, I'm here attempting to make sure many of the problems I heard about from our last tournament don't happen again. Will be posting score updates during the day.

This tournament was much improved from previous Bloomfield events. We played 11 rounds and were done by 5:30. I have some remarks I'll address at NAQT re: questions, but in terms of organization, this was a very solid effort.

Results have been available here since the night of the tournament. Millburn A defeated Livingston A in the final. Millburn B took 3rd place by defeating Delaware Valley, and Liv C beat Liv B in the fifth place game. A 7th place game between Northern Highlands and Ramapo was unplayed.
