Post by bchiang »

Irvine High Operation Pandemonium II

LOCATION: Irvine High School, 4321 Walnut Avenue, Irvine, CA 92604. The matches itself will be taking place in the Humanities Building.

DATE: The tournament will be held on Saturday, October 27th. Check-in begins at 8:00 am, and first round should begin around 9 am. Schedules and roster confirmation sheets will be announced after the check-in.

FORMAT: The tournament will be using the NAQT IS-120 The tournament will adhere to Official NAQT Rules- with the exception that each round will be run as two untimed, 10-question halves- with a preliminary round robin followed by reseeding based on results from the round robin phase. Seedings in the individual sub-brackets will be determined by the overall win-loss record. Ties for reseedings will be resolved based on points per game, followed by points per bonus. The top two teams in the championship brackets will enter a superplayoff format for final order of finish.

As stated in the NAQT HSNCT (High School National Championship Tournament) qualification rules, the top 15% of the field--5 teams--will qualify for the 2013 HSNCT held in Atlanta, Georgia.

ELIGIBILITY: All high school students are welcome to attend.

PRICING STRUCTURE:
Base fee = $80 for one team, $70 per team after the first

Discounts will be given as follows:
-$5 for each fully-functional buzzer system (must have at least four working buzzers on both sides)
-$5 for traveling distances over 50 miles, one-way, according to Google Maps
-$10 moderator discount (this is going to be tentative, depending on the field)
-$20 for each team that has not competed in a decent, mACF-style or NAQT tournament in the past 2 years.
Minimum fee = $60/team

Please make checks payable to: Irvine Quiz Bowl. Please do not make a check out to any other person or entity. Checks or cash will be due at the start of the tournament during registration.

Field Cap: 30 teams

Updates of the tournament will be made primarily through the Socal Quiz Bowl Facebook group as well as this forum.

LUNCH:
A light breakfast will be provided in HLG. The intersection between Walnut and Culver (about a 5-10 minute walk away) has many fast food restaurants such as Subway, Quiznos, Wendy's, and Sushi Boy.

Thank you!

1-2 teams from RB. With the slimest possibility of three teams.
Probably 2-4 buzzers.

Arcadia will be sending 4-6 teams, plus two buzzer sets and possibly a mod or two (we'll figure that out the week before 10/27).

Actually, we would like to expand our team count to four (4). We are currently unsure of how many buzzers we are able to bring.

We will probably be sending at least 1-2 teams with some buzzers. Even if the school decides not to send teams, at least one team will be there.

Would it be possible to add the moderator, new school, and long distance discounts to the Google doc?

Yes - I will add the new school + distance discounts. However, I will not add moderators until I feel like we are absolutely sure that we need them.

I really enjoyed the set this time, and Ben was a great director that made everything run smoothly. The field was pretty competitive, and I enjoyed many close matches. Of course, the winner of the neg award was expected.

The top 5 teams have qualified for the HSNCT while either the top 6 or top 7 will qualify for PACE National Championship depending on our tournament ranking.
Note that NAQT does not normally use statistical tiebreakers to determine HSNCT qualification, so in fact the top 6 teams qualified here. (Although in this case both Canyon Crest and North Hollywood qualified at Arcadia last month.)
