Greetings,

The Northern Illinois University Quiz Bowl Association is excited to announce our annual Huskie Bowl tournament. It will be held on January 30th, 2016. I, Alec Krueger, will serve as tournament coordinator, and Kristin Strey will handle the day-of-event tournament direction. It will be run on the BASQT set. More information on BASQT can be found here. We will be running two divisions.

Registration
To register for this event, send me an email at [email protected] with your team name, number of teams of that you are bringing, which division for each team, and buzzer/staffer/laptop/travel discount information. Due to our low initial cap of 18 total teams, B, C, etc. teams will be waitlisted until 9 January 2016. We reserve the right to move teams between divisions.

The fees for the tournament are as follows:
$80/team
-$10/additional team from a school
-$5/working buzzer system (must have at least four working lights for each team. Limit two systems per school).
-$10/experienced moderator provided (an additional -$5 if the staffer brings a laptop. Moderators must be approved by the TD)

For payment, please make checks out to “Quiz Bowl Association.” You can bring them the day of. If your school requires some sort of advance payment, or an invoice, email me, and we will sort it out.

Teams that cannot afford the entry fee are encouraged to contact me to discuss possible further discounts.

We are currently at 9 teams out of the 18 team field cap, with 6 teams on the B/C/D team wait list. The field is now half full.

We are also seeking moderator assistance for this event; we can offer moderators breakfast, lunch, and staff bowl during lunch for their help. If you're interested in reading, or know someone who is interested in reading, please let me know.

Huskie Bowl was awarded gold certification by PACE. The top 20% of teams (rounded up to the nearest integer) will qualify for the PACE NSC on the weekend of June 4th-5th at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare outside of Chicago.

Additionally, we are at 11/18 teams, with 8 teams currently on the B/C/D team waitlist.

Just a reminder that B/C/D teams will be let off the waitlist this Saturday. That will cause the field to fill up.

Quick update: Auburn beat IMSA in an advantaged final (Auburn had the advantage) to win the tournament.

Since there's nowhere to find the stats from the tournament, I'll just post them here.
