Post by basilosaurus » Fri Sep 22, 2017 9:04 pm

Irvine Quiz Bowl is excited to announce its seventh annual IHOP (Irvine High Operation Pandemonium) tournament.

LOCATION: Irvine High School, 4321 Walnut Avenue, Irvine, CA 92604. The matches themselves will take place in the new Social Sciences Building. Note that this a departure from previous years. Optimal parking is the back parking lot. Please contact if further info is needed.

DATE: The tournament will be held on Saturday, October 21. Check-in will begin at 8:00 am in SS201, and the first round should begin around 9 am. Schedules and roster confirmation sheets will be available after check-in.

The tournament will adhere to Official NAQT Rules--with the exception that each round will be run as two untimed, 10-question halves--with a preliminary round robin followed by reseeding based on results from the round robin phase. Seeding in the individual sub-brackets will be determined by the overall win-loss record. Ties for re-seedings will be resolved based on points per game, followed by points per bonus.

As stated in the NAQT HSNCT (High School National Championship Tournament) qualification rules, the top 15% of the field will qualify for the 2018 HSNCT.
We have received Gold certification from PACE, meaning that the top 20% of teams at the tournament will qualify for NSC 2018.
