Kentucky NASAT Tryouts - 3/10/2013 (RESCHEDULED)

Post by AKKOLADE »

On March 10th from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., the University of Kentucky will be conducting tryouts for the team that will represent Kentucky at HSAPQ's National All-Star Academic Tournament (NASAT). NASAT will be held at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio on June 15-16, 2013.

The team is being organized by the coach of Dunbar's team, Susan Magedanz. The University of Kentucky's team's involvement is limited to organizing tryouts for the team and helping decide the team.

This tryout will be absolutely free to any interested eligible students.

Tryouts are expected to last no more than two hours.

We will be using this year's Penn-ance, as it will be of approximately the same difficulty as the set for NASAT. Penn-ance is a set that is considered "regular difficulty" for college teams, so it will be a challenge to most high school students.

A maximum of six players may be selected for this team after this tryout. Alternates may be selected as well.

The selection committee will consist of members of the University of Kentucky team, including Fred Morlan, who was the Tournament Director for the 2012 NASAT. Help from other members of the Kentucky quiz bowl community is being pursued as well.

Note that public discussion of Penn-ance has yet to begin, nor has the set been posted. All the same, it is expected that players trying out for this team will conduct themselves in an ethical way; specifically, this means that these students will not gain information about the set before its usage on this day. Gaining information about the contents of this set before the tryout may result in dismissal from the team if he or she is chosen.

Requests for further information, or to register, for this tryout can be done by emailing the University of Kentucky Quiz Bowl team at our address, [email protected] .

If you're planning on participating in this, do not read any discussion of the ACF Regionals set.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel this due to logistical issues today. I apologize to everyone for this; I hope we can come up with an alternate plan soon.

We're up to at least 11 people. There's a couple of people from duPont Manual that signed up last time, and I'm not sure if they're planning on attending. We'd love to have people who did not sign before sign up this time as well!

Remember that the deadline to sign up is 11:59 p.m., Friday.
