Quaker Bowl 10/12/2013--NAQT IS #128 (Greensboro, NC)

Post by smithp5 »

The Academic Team at The Early College at Guilford is pleased to announce that we will host the 5th Quaker Bowl on Saturday, October 12, 2013. This is a high school Quiz Bowl tournament that will take place from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. The tournament is open to any high school team that wishes to attend. The tournament will take place on the Guilford College campus, in Greensboro, North Carolina. The opening meeting will take place in Dana Auditorium (subject to change), and the matches will take place in King and Duke Buildings on the campus.

AFFLIATION AND QUESTIONS: We will use NAQT Invitational Questions, particularly NAQT set #IS-128. The tournament will serve as an unofficial NAQT event, and as such, the top 15% of the field will qualify for the NAQT High School National Championship. We are also looking to affiliate with the PACE National Tournament, and tournaments run or co-run by The Early College at Guilford Academic Team have been certified as gold or platinum tournaments for five straight years.

FORMAT: The tournament field size will be capped at 24 teams. The teams will be divided into preliminary brackets, and then will be rebracketed into playoff brackets. More information about the exact format will be released as we get closer to the date, and may change due to the number of teams, etc. Each team will be guaranteed to play 9 games. In the event that fewer than 24 teams register, the format will change accordingly. Trophies will be awarded to the top teams, and book prizes will be awarded to the top eight individual scorers. Each match will consist of 2 un-timed halves, with each half consisting of 10 buzzer tossup questions. We will have powers and negs at the Quaker Bowl, but no bouncebacks on bonuses. ***There will also be no computational math tossups at this year's Quaker Bowl. We will leave in computational math bonuses. ***

REGISTRATION: To register, please e-mail me, Paul Smith, at ecgquizbowl AT gmail.com with the number of teams, buzzers, and staffers you want to bring, and e-mail address where we may contact you. You may also register using our online system on our tournament website: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1DmX018 ... k/viewform (You may send ECG Quiz Bowl an e-mail to obtain the link).
Soon after you complete your registration, you will receive a confirmation e-mail and a packet e-mailed from The Early College at Guilford Academic Team containing the official rules, directions, parking and dining information (all materials which will also be provided on the day of the competition). Again, registration fees may be mailed in advance for a discount (with the registration sheet) or paid at the tournament. Checks should be made out to “The Early College at Guilford.” For the purposes of tournament organization, our registration will run until October 4th—please send in your registration information by that date.

This year, we are committing to hosting 24 teams. In the instance that more than 24 teams register, we will start a waiting list. We will also have a stand-by list for those teams that would be willing to compete at no charge if there are last-minute drops.

FEE STRUCTURE:
Base fee: $75 for first team. We will initially only take one team per school until September 20th. Please indicate in your registration that you’d like to bring multiple teams, and we will let you know if there are open spots after September 20th for additional teams. The cost will be $50 for additional teams.
Buzzer discount: $10 off school's total fee for each fully functional system (control box and eight activators all work).
Staff discount: $10 off school's total fee. This could be a coach, parent, student who is not playing, etc. Team-provided staffers will keep score for various games not involving the team with which they are affiliated. Volunteer staffers must stay through all the games (except finals) in order to receive credit for their school. You may have only one staffer count for your discount.
Early payment discount: $10 off school’s total fee. If The Early College at Guilford receives your payment on or before October 4th, we will take off $10 from your school’s fee.
Travel discount: $15 off school’s total fee for traveling over 150 miles (as determined by MapQuest).
Minimum fee: The minimum fee is $0 (you cannot have a negative fee)

METHOD OF PAYMENT: All teams must pay on or before the day of the tournament (see above note on the discount). We would prefer that you send in your payment before the tournament, but will also accept payment in person right before the tournament starts. Teams who do not pay on or before the day of the tournament will be charged a $25 penalty and will have two weeks to pay their total amount before we start mailing letters to your school administration about it. We can accept personal checks, or checks from school, school district, or Quiz Bowl club funds. *** In particular, our administration has stated that we cannot accept cash this year for accounting reasons. ***

TEAM & ROSTER SIZE: There may be a maximum of six players on one team's roster, up to four of whom may play at one time, with no exceptions. If you bring more than six players, you must register a second team to have all of them play. There is a halftime substitution opportunity in each game. Each player may appear on only one team's roster throughout the day-no switching from the B team to the A team, etc. Teams may also play shorthanded with only three players. Teams consisting of fewer than three players may not play without my express prior permission.

FOOD: Neither breakfast nor lunch will be provided by the tournament. The Quaker Village shopping area is within walking distance of the tournament, and we will be working closely with the eating establishments in this shopping area to offer deals to teams competing in our tournament; maps and suggestions will be provided at the tournament and in e-mails sent to the teams before the tournament.

We look forward to seeing your team at the 5th Quaker Bowl!

Coach, The Early College at Guilford

Because of some issues with room reservations, we will have to temporarily cap the field at 20 teams for Quaker Bowl. If any teams register after the 20 team cap has been reached, we will start a wait-list. However, the issue with rooms may be resolved, and I will announce any subsequent field cap changes once that happens.

We have been able to secure extra rooms and will now go back to our original field cap of 24 teams (but we cannot expand beyond that number). This means that the field is now officially full and the waiting list will start.

Update (10/8/2013): We have been able to open two more rooms and thus expand to 28 teams. Ignore the statement above.

The final scores on all score sheets have been reviewed, and the score in the Blacksburg vs. Enloe A match has been updated. I apologize to both teams for the oversight, but 5th place went to Blacksburg and 6th place went to Enloe A.
