Carrboro Winter Invitational (Carrboro, NC) on 2/16/19

Post by arunchakrabarty »

Carrboro High School is excited to announce our Winter Invitational Tournament on February 16, 2019! We will be mirroring the Yale BHSAT XVIII set. This tournament is a platinum PACE qualifier, meaning that the top 25% of teams will qualify for the 2019 NSC.

Rules: Matches will be in 20/20 format running on NAQT rules, with an extra tossup and bonus in case of tiebreakers. There will be no double negs or bouncebacks on bonuses.
More set info: http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic. ... 9bbbeac062

Fees: Registration fees will be $70 per team, with a $5 discount per functional buzzer system (must have at least eight working buzzers), and a $10 discount for each experienced moderator/staffer. Teams driving 150 miles or more according to Google Maps will receive a $10 discount. The minimum amount a school can pay per team will be $50.

Field: At the moment we can accommodate a maximum of 18 teams, but we may expand the field depending on interest. Each team may anywhere from 2 to 6 players on its roster, but only 4 may compete at a time.

Format: Each team will be guaranteed 9 rounds. Preliminary rounds will begin at 9:00am. After lunch, teams will be separated into playoff divisions based on preliminary performances. The tournament will likely finish by 4:30pm. The top two teams will be awarded trophies. The top ten individual scorers after prelims will receive book prizes.

The school address is 201 Rock Haven Rd, Carrboro, NC 27510. The tournament will be held in the upper D-wing of Carrboro High School. Parking will be available in the student and faculty parking lots adjacent to the building.

Neither breakfast nor lunch will be provided. We will provide a comprehensive list of restaurants and other food options in the area to schools that register.
