Postby insohumniac » Tue Sep 12, 2017 10:31 am

The Charter School of Wilmington is pleased to announce the inaugural Charter School of Wilmington Academic Tournament (CSWAT), which will be held on Saturday, October 14th, 2017.

QUESTION SET:
The tournament will be run using NAQT’s IS-169A set. We will not be using computational math tossups.

LOGISTICS:
We will impose a soft field cap of 36, but this may be increased depending on buzzer and moderator availability. Please sign up before 10/7/17.

The tournament will be held at the Charter School of Wilmington (100 North Dupont Rd, Wilmington, DE, 19807). Registration and the staffer meeting will begin at 8:00 AM, and the opening meeting will start at 8:30 AM. Pizza will also be available for order in the morning. We hope to have teams in rooms for round 1 by 9:00 AM.

We plan to run a schedule of 5 rounds in the morning, in preliminary pools of 6, with a round robin format. Each team should play a total of 5 rounds before lunch. The top 2 teams from each bracket will proceed to higher tiered playoffs, and the remaining teams will play consolation matches in the afternoon.

FEES:
Registration fees per team:
$80 for schools that regularly participate in pyramidal quizbowl
$45 for schools that are new to pyramidal quizbowl (defined as any team that hasn’t participated in pyramidal quizbowl tournaments for at least 2 years.)

DISCOUNTS:
We will offer the following discounts to teams :

Further discounts include:
-$5 per each fully functional buzzer set, meaning that it has at least 8 working buzzers
-$10 for experienced moderators (moderators will be provided with lunch)
-$10 for teams travelling over 150 miles (one way distance from the two schools, calculated via Google Maps)

Minimum fees:
$45 for schools that regularly participate in pyramidal quizbowl.
$25 for teams that have not played pyramidal quizbowl in the past two years.
Registration fees can be paid through cash or by check. Checks should be made to The Charter School of Wilmington with Academic Bowl on the memo line. Please send a roster for each team your school brings to the tournament to aid with statkeeping. We will process your registration fee and provide your team with an invoice by lunch. While payment the day of the tournament is preferable, you may also mail the check to our school (at 100 North Dupont Rd, Wilmington, DE, 19807), with "Academic Bowl" on the memo line.

Congratulations to Manheim Township A for winning the first Charter School of Wilmington Academic Tournament! Manheim Township B came in second place, followed by Tome. I would like to thank all players, coaches and staffers for coming today, and especially Mr. Tressler for his help in the stats room. Full stats are available here : http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/4585/. Please let me know if there are any discrepancies or errors in the stats, and I will address them accordingly.
