Decline and Fall at Berkeley, 9/24/11

Post by Important Bird Area » Tue Sep 20, 2011 3:36 pm

Cross-posting on behalf of Gaius Stern from BAAL:
BAAL invites your teams to play in an NAQT buzzer competition: the Decline and Fall Quizbowl on 25 September at UC Berkeley for afternoon play.

Schools are encouraged to send multiple teams of four players (one additional alternate is permitted). The game format will resemble the Quiz Kids show with toss-ups and bonuses in the first half of the game and just Toss-ups in the final round. Some Quiz Kids staff will attend (we have invited Brad to read rounds). As always at a BAAL event, teams will begin by playing a partial round-robin of five or six matches, regardless of win-loss record. Everyone will play at least six games. If there are play-offs you may play as many as eight rounds.
This tournament will use NAQT IS #106A.

Contact Gaius (gaius [at] berkeley [dot] edu) to register.

Registration will be at 12:30 in 262 Dwinelle Hall.
