Colorado State Championship (03/03)

Postby matt2718 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 9:12 pm

Hello everyone!

It is my pleasure to announce the Colorado State Quiz Bowl Championship, hosted by the University of Colorado Boulder. At this tournament, teams will be able to qualify for HSNCT.

Location and schedule:
The tournament will be held on Saturday, March 3rd in the Engineering Center. The tournament will begin at 9:00 AM MST, and teams should arrive by 8:30. Additional information will be emailed to registered teams.

Registration:
Registration emails should be sent to matthew.s.mitchell@colorado.edu. Please let us know how many teams, staffers, and buzzers your school will be bringing.

Fees:
$50 for the first team from each school ($25 for schools new to quiz bowl)
$25 for each subsequent team
Buzzer discount: -$10/functional system
Staffer discount: -$10/staffer
Minimum fee: $20/team

The new school discount applies to any school that did not compete in a multi-subject, pyramidal quiz bowl tournament during the 2016-2017 school year. This does not include Knowledge Bowl, Science Bowl, or History Bowl.

Field cap:
We are setting a tentative field cap of 16 teams; this will change as we get more staffers.

Current Field:
Boulder A
Boulder B
Fairview
Grand Junction A
Grand Junction B
Grand Junction C
Lake City A
Lake City B
Lake City C
Rock Canyon
Weld Central A

PACE has certified this tournament at the gold level, so the top 20% of teams will qualify for NSC.
