Base fee: $65 per team

-$10 per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)

-$10 per scorekeeper (We will hold a brief training session during check-in for volunteers who have never kept score before)

-$15 per experienced moderator

-$10 if your school successfully recruits a new school (see definition below) to compete

Schools that are new to quiz bowl (defined as having played zero quiz bowl tournaments during the 2016-2017 school year) will play this tournament for free. Any schools from Nevada will also play this tournament for free.

Douglas High School, from Minden, Nevada, would like to bring a team. We plan to have five students. How many students play in each round? (In our NAQT in Reno we play 4 at a time with substitutions)?
We see that Nevada teams are free this time, and that is amazing! We can bring a buzzer system if you would like us to.

Welcome! We're glad to have a Nevada school making the trip over the Sierras to join us.

Four players play at a time (substitutions are allowed between games, at halftime, and before overtime if needed).
