POET (10/21/17) @ Hidden Valley HS (Roanoke, VA)

Postby nraza12 » Wed Sep 06, 2017 12:29 pm

I am pleased to announce that Hidden Valley's first invitational, the Promethean October Edition Tournament (POET), will take place on October 21, 2017 in Roanoke, Virginia. We hope to have a successful first tournament and to establish this as an annual event.

QUESTIONS:
We have secured the DEFT housewrite for our tournament. It is a regular to regular-minus difficulty set, great practice for VHSL conference play. Distribution and other information can be found here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=109&t=20173

FIELD:
Field is initially capped at 16 teams. This may increase according to availability of resources. A waitlist will be started if we hit the field cap.

FEES & DISCOUNTS:
Base Fee: $70 per team
$5 discount for each working buzzer system
$10 discount for each competent moderator
$15 discount for each school travelling more than 150 miles as determined by Google Maps

Minimum Fee: $30 per team

Payment will be accepted in cash or check payable to Hidden Valley High School. If an invoice is needed, please contact us beforehand.

TEAM & ROSTER SIZE:
There may be a maximum of six players on one team's roster, up to four of whom may play at one time. No exceptions. Each player may appear on only one team's roster, even if the other team is from the same school. Teams may also play shorthanded.

FOOD:
We will provide a modest breakfast for free and will have lunch for sale. Concessions will be available throughout the tournament to purchase. A list of local dining options will be available upon request.

LOCATION:
The tournament will be located at Hidden Valley High School in Roanoke, VA. Address: 5000 Titan Trail, Roanoke, VA 24018.
