Announcement: Virginia Tech Invitational Tournament

Post by Snoopy17 »

The Academic Competition Organization of Virginia Tech is pleased to announce that our organization will be resuming the Virginia Tech High School Academic Invitational Tournament. The tournament is currently scheduled for Saturday November 13th. Slots in the tournament will be allocated on the basis of priority entry, and with an interest in giving as many schools as possible the opportunity to participate.

The tournament format will depend on the number of entrants. Possible formats include Swiss pairings and round-robin, which should guarantee each team a minimum of seven games.

The tournament entry fee is $50 for a school’s first team, and $45 for all subsequent teams. Schools that make buzzer systems available for use in the tournament will be eligible for a $10 discount per buzzer system. Buzzer discounts will be allocated to as many schools as possible. We are also offering a “finder’s feeâ€

Questions will be house written. A round will consist of 20 Toss-Ups and your choice of bonuses from topics. We are not yet decided on the usage of bouncebacks on bonuses.

How many teams are showing up?

Are you getting emails from Judith Wylie @ Marion, or waiting to send a larger email in a week or so when the field is fully fleshed out?

The field will probably not be announced for at least a week. I sent out a large email today because apparently my email doesn't work from my computer. Sorry about any confusion.

thanks!

she (dr. wylie) had sent me an email asking what was going on

apparently they (marion) graduated their entire team and she wasn't 100% sure they'd have a team this year (or at least one that wasn't scraped together @ the last minute.)
