Eagle's Nest (01/22/2022, MN - SCOP Novice 11)

Post by Scone »

The Eden Prairie High School Quiz Bowl Team is pleased to announce Eagle's Nest, a high school novice tournament taking place on January 22nd, 2022 at Eden Prairie High School, located at 17185 Valley View Road, Eden Prairie, MN.

Questions:

The tournament will use SCOP Novice 11, a set that is targeted at high school novices. It is easier than NAQT's Introductory Invitational Series (also called "A-sets"), which is used at many Minnesota tournaments. Past iterations of SCOP Novice can be found here.

SCOP Novice 11 will not contain any computational math.

Rules:

The tournament will use NAQT Rules with the following modifications:

Games will consist of 20 tossup/bonus cycles with no timer; each half will consist of 10 tossup/bonus cycles. Players will have 5 seconds to start their answer after buzzing on a tossup. Players will have 5 seconds to buzz on a tossup after the moderator has finished reading it.

Eligibility:

Players who have:

- Scored over 50 PPG at any pyramidal high school quiz bowl tournament (including four-round meets of Minnesota High School Quiz Bowl League, but excluding RAT-RACE)
- Played on a team that placed top 50 at MSNCT, top 50 at PACE NSC, or top 75 at HSNCT

are not eligible to play at this tournament. If you have any questions about our eligibility requirements or wish to request an exemption for a player, you can email [email protected].

Fees:

$75 cost per team

-$5 discount for each fully functional buzzer system brought

-$10 discount for each experienced staffer brought

-$25 discount for any school that has not played at a pyramidal quiz bowl tournament since September 1st, 2020 (Knowledge Bowl is not counted as a pyramidal quiz bowl tournament)

Registration:

To register, please fill out this form. Please note that we are requiring that every school bring an adult chaperone. A chaperone can represent multiple teams from the same school. The deadline is Wednesday, January 19th at 11:59pm. If you have any questions or wish to request an exemption, you can email [email protected].

Field Size:

Our field cap is 16 teams; additional teams will be placed on the waitlist.

Schedule:

Check-in will begin at 8:30. At 9:00, we will have an introductory meeting and begin the tournament. We guarantee every team will play 9 games. We expect the tournament to end at around 4:00.

Staff:

If you wish to staff this tournament, please fill out this form. Any questions about staffing can be directed to [email protected].

We look forward to seeing you all at Eagle's Nest on January 22nd!
