Northwestern Wildcat Tournament Oct 30

Post by Colby Burnett »

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Colby Burnett, the current President of Northwestern University’s Quiz Bowl team. We are hosting our annual National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT)-formatted tournament, the Wildcat Invitational. The date will be Saturday, October 30. I will e-mail all interested parties with specific times and schedules for competition. The invite has been switched over from letter to e-mail format. Our rationale for this is that this method is more direct. Also, I believe that this is a cost-saving measure for both parties. I will be honest with you: we simply cannot afford the cost of a mailing at this time. So, please RSVP me if you are willing to go.

Logistics:

The tournament will be held on the Evanston, IL campus of Northwestern University, with competition occurring in Harris, Kresge, and University Halls.

Format:
Teams will consist of four players each. The rounds themselves will be untimed. All other NAQT rules will be in effect. The tournament will be in a round-robin format, with the top 5 teams competing in a mini-round robin to determine the final winner. I believe this to be a fairer and more decisive method of determining a winner. Brackets, if necessary, will be determined by the amount of teams that respond. Each team is guaranteed a minimum of ten rounds of competition.

A full listing of the rules may be found here:
http://www.naqt.com/rules.html

Please respond to me as soon as possible with any comments or concerns you may have.
An invoice file is attached, along with links to a map of Northwestern’s campus and a restaurant guide. Please enjoy. Also, please feel free in forwarding this to any school with or league in which you compete.
