Which of these, if any, is doing 20/20? Bridgeport did in 2013. Are these open registration or invitation only?

I'm certain they're not pure invitationals; I basically named them Invitationals because quiz bowl tournaments in WV tend to not be named.

As for 20/20, I really don't know. That's something you'd have to ask the tournament hosts themselves (or me, once I get a copy of the invitation); the best I could do at this point is put you in touch with them.

Thanks for posting these here Fred, it would definitely be nice to see some new teams compete in Wv. If anyone is curious, Gw A will be going to Ripley, Bridgeport, and States, but only our B team will be at Phillip Barbour and Ravenswood.
Also, Tom, I don’t know about Bridgeport’s format yet, but Ripley will be doing 10 tossups, a 15 question Worksheet (unfortunately), and then 10 tossups with bonus. It’s not 20/20, but it’s at least a step toward a more balanced format.

I'm okay with the idea of a worksheet round, myself. Execution can be an issue sometimes, though.

I'd also like to note Virginia Tech has two dates reserved for tournaments this Spring. We're a surprisingly short drive for most WV teams and we frequently offer new team and travel discounts.

Our dates are:
3/15 - Tournament to be announced in the next two weeks. We'll likely be running IS-135A. (I'll be TD'ing this tournament!)
4/12 - Virginia Tech Spring Invitational (Prison Bowl)

I'll likely try to bill the 3/15 tournament as a warm-up for VA NAQT States as that tournament will be the following weekend. So hopefully we get a rather strong turnout regardless of the easier set.

Prison Bowl has been a very widely acclaimed set for the past couple of years and we're very happy to be mirroring it again this year. It's a regular difficulty set that makes for a great pre-Nationals tournament.

Both tournaments will be a full 20/20 with a morning round-robin and then a re-bracketed playoff. If you have any questions or would like an email notification (West Virginia schools only, please) when we make our announcements, please feel free to email me at [email protected].

Philip Barbour is on IS-135A and rounds will consist of "10 tossups with bonuses, a 15-question worksheet, and 10 tossups with bonuses to conclude." They're apparently planning on using Swiss Pairs. There's a registration deadline of 2/23. The fee is $40/team. I can forward the form required for registration to anyone.

If anyone was interested in this Saturday's tournament in Ripley, they might not allow any more registrations, but they're doing the above format without bonuses on the first ten tossups. $45/team.

Bridgeport, still on 3/22, is using IS-134. They're doing ten tossups with no bonuses, then ten tossups with bonuses. I think it's 5 prelim rounds (not sure how these are determined) and then the top 4 teams do a round robin for the top four spots, with Swiss Pairs consolation rounds for the rest of teams. Registration deadline is 3/14. $45/team.

The Ripley tournament has been postponed due to weather. No new date has been announced yet.
