Phillips Academy Winter Tournament (PAWT)

Post by endymion » Fri Oct 27, 2017 5:25 pm

Andover Quiz Bowl is happy to announce the Phillips Academy Winter Tournament (PAWT) on 9 December 2017.

REGISTRATION
All high school quiz bowl teams are invited to register. Our current field cap is 24 teams. To register your team, use this survey to let us know the number of teams, buzzers, and any supplied staffers:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... sp=sf_link

If there are any issues or additional pieces of information, email Anna Cambron at acambron@andover.edu; she will get back to you as quickly as possible with further instructions for participation in the tournament.

LOGISTICS
PAWT will take place on the Phillips Academy Andover campus (180 Main Street, Andover, Mass). We will run check-in from 8:15 to 8:50 AM outside of Kemper Auditorium (on Chapel Street) before convening for a brief opening meeting that will begin the tournament. We would like to begin game-play around 9:15 in Gelb Science Center. The tournament should end around 5 PM. Teams will play a minimum of ten games, should we reach our field cap.

FORMAT
In every round, each team will have the opportunity to answer twenty toss-up questions. The team that answers a given toss-up question correctly will subsequently be given a three-part bonus question to be answered solely by the members of that team. A team may have four active players at a time; up to two alternates are allowed. Schools with seven or more people on a team will be asked to create a second team. Fifteen point powers, no computational math.

LUNCH OPTIONS
We will be selling pizza! Order through the same survey link used to register. There are also a few restaurants within walking distance, including UBurger and Subway.

THE SET
PAWT will be using IS-170.

NATIONAL TOURNAMENTS
The top 15% of the field will be qualified for HSNCT and the top 25% will be qualified for PACE-NSC.

FEES
The fees for this tournament are as follows:

$80 per team
$60 per new team ($20 discount)(i.e. from a school that has not played in an naqt tournament in the past year)
−$5 discount per working buzzer system
−$15 discount per staffer provided

Cash and checks are acceptable forms of payment. Please make all checks out to “Andover Quiz Bowl.”

We hope to see you there!

UPDATE: We have reached our field cap, but the signup is still open.
Anyone who still wants to attend will be placed on a waitlist and given spots if teams drop out.
Just fill out the survey as normal to be placed on the waitlist.
