Matador Invitational at Valencia College: Feb. 17, 2018

Postby ValenciaQBowl » Fri Nov 17, 2017 12:35 pm

Valencia College is happy to announce the Second Annual Matador Invitational for HS teams on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018. This tournament is ABSOLUTELY FREE. And we'll provide lunch. How could you say no?

Due to this largesse, schools are limited to a maximum of two teams each. We have a cap of 32 teams, so if you'd like to bring a third (or more) teams, please indicate that in your reply here (or e-mail to me), and if we don't reach 32, we'll take teams beyond two in order of request.

This tournament will use NAQT IS-171A, so please ensure you don't play that earlier in the year, obviously. The tournament will be held on Valencia's West Campus (Orlando, FL) in Buildings 9 and 7; here's a campus map: http://valenciacollege.edu/map/west-campus.cfm. We'll register teams from 9-9:45 a.m., with matches beginning promptly at 10 a.m. We expect to be done by 6 p.m. at the latest. Please let me know if you'll be interested in a hotel the night before; if enough teams are interested, I can see about setting up a block at a nearby Wingate we've used for college tournaments in the past, but in any case, because this campus is three miles from Universal Studios, there are numerous nearby hotels.

To register, reply here or e-mail me at cborglum at valenciacollege dot edu. Please note that, since this tournament was created to try to bring good quizbowl to the somewhat barren wasteland of Orange County, FL, I'm holding six slots for local Orlando high schools. So register soon!

So this happened, and the A team from Celebration High School (Osceola County, FL) won, going undefeated, beating Ponte Vedra Nease HS in the final. A fine time was had by all. Here are some stats: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/4985/stats/combined/
