Postby Malaika Paralkar » Mon Oct 16, 2017 3:03 pm

Downingtown East High School is excited to announce our high school invitational on Saturday, January 6, 2018. Registration will be from at 8-8:30 AM, with matches starting at 9. This tournament will be directed by myself and Jackie Wu.

This tournament will have two divisions: experienced and novice. Any team may register for the experienced division, while the novice division is designed for underclassmen or those with less quizbowl experience. Please ask if you're not sure which division is appropriate for your team! Each school may register 3 teams total initially. Additional teams will be added to a waitlist.

Location: 50 Devon Drive, Exton, PA 19341
Set: NAQT IS-172

Fee Structure:
$75 for first team
$65 per additional team
-$5 per fully functional buzzer system
-$10 per experienced moderator
-$25 per school for schools new to quiz bowl this year (or those that have not played in the past 2 years)

Minimum fee: $50 per team

Please bring payment (cash or checks made out to “Downingtown East High School”) on the morning of the tournament.

To register, please fill out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/K8xPO159hSYK02EB2

Field Cap: 30 teams (may increase if we can get more moderators)

Lunch info: There are several nearby restaurants within walking distance or a short drive, and we may also be offering food on-site.
