Kentucky Quizbowl Alliance: 2014-15 Goldenrod Cup

Post by Rococo A Go Go » Wed Oct 15, 2014 6:13 pm

The Kentucky Quizbowl Alliance is pleased to announce the first annual Goldenrod Cup, a year-long competition to reward teams for success at pyramidal quizbowl tournaments hosted in Kentucky. The Goldenrod Cup will be awarded following the conclusion of the last tournament affiliated with this competition, likely in May. Tournaments can affiliate with the Goldenrod Cup by agreeing to the KQBA standards of good tournament practices, which involve having a field open to all varsity high school quizbowl teams in Kentucky, guaranteeing at least 6 games to all attending teams, using pyramidal, academic questions, and providing a full order of finish to the KQBA after the event. The Goldenrod Cup will be awarded to the team who earns the most points at affiliated tournaments, with tournament champions receiving 10 points, runners-up receiving 9 points, and so on through 10th place receiving 1 point. While the following will be a list of currently affiliated tournaments, we have reached out to other tournament directors and hope to add more tournaments to this list soon.

October 18: WKU Hilltopper Invitational (Bowling Green)
October 25: UofL Arts and Sciences Challenge (Louisville)
November 22: UK Fall Championship (Lexington)
December 13: Danville Academic Tournament (Danville)
January 10: Fleming County Academic Tournament (Flemingsburg)
February 28: NAQT State Championship (Bowling Green)
April 11: UK Spring Championship (Lexington)

We are aware of other events that have been announced, and hope to affiliate with those events if and when their tournament directors get in touch with me. If you would like to affiliate with this competition, please contact me so I can add you to this list, you can do this by either posting in this thread of emailing me at [email protected]

We hope to see you at one of our Goldenrod Cup events this year!

Congratulations to Woodford County A for having earned enough points to have clinched the 2014-15 KQBA Goldenrod Cup no matter the result of UK's tournament in April; I will also point out that 8 teams are still mathematically alive for the 2nd place position.
