Livingston HS March Madness 2018 (NAQT IS-174) - March 17, 2018
Hello everyone! Happy New Year!
I am pleased to announce that Livingston HS, in Livingston, NJ, will be hosting its annual tournament - this year on Saturday, March 17, 2018. http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/4800/
SET: We are going to be using NAQT set IS-174.
TEAMS: We can physically host up to 48 teams. However, we are going to have a soft cap at 36 teams and, if sufficient demand warrants and we are able to secure sufficient readers and buzzers, will up the number of teams to 42 with a hard cap of 48 teams. Initially, I will take a cap of 3 teams per school and, by February 14, approximately one month before the tournament, will put all additional teams per school into the field. For the moment, all teams beyond 3 from a single school will be put on the wait list.
ROUNDS: We are planning on a round robin of preliminary rounds (depending on number of teams) followed by lunch and then playoffs to follow. We aim to let each team have at least 10 rounds.
START TIME: Check in/registration between 8 - 8:30 with a moderator meeting at 8:30 and a welcome at 8:45 with round 1 to start at 9:00. We aim to be done with the tournament between 5:00 - 6:00.
FOOD: A great, high quality bagel (with butter and cream cheese) and orange juice breakfast will be provided free of charge. We will be selling pizzas in the morning (order them that morning upon arriving to check in) at approximately $12 per pie (please bring cash and as close to exact change as possible), as well as selling slices, waters, sodas, DELICIOUS homemade baked goods, and other food/snacks throughout the day, most all of which will cost $1 each. This is our team fundraiser so we would appreciate your support!
$80 for the first team
$70 for each additional team from the same school
Discounts of $10 for each EXPERIENCED moderator (as needed) and $5 for each buzzer set (as needed)
Max discount of $20 per school
