CCA Quizbowl is PROUD to proclaim Powered Points Tournament I, a JV and Middle School tournament using the IS-175A and MS-25 sets.

LOCATION: Canyon Crest Academy, 5951 Village Center Loop Road, San Diego, CA 92130. The matches will be likely be held on the first floor, in the D and E buildings. Confirmation to come soon.

DATE: The tournament will be held on Saturday, April 21st, 2018. Check-in will begin at 8:30 am in E101, and the first round should begin around 9 am. Schedules and roster confirmation sheets will be available after check-in.

FORMAT: The tournament will feature one JV division playing the NAQT IS-175A set and a middle school division playing the NAQT MS-25 set. The tournament will adhere to official NAQT rules—with the exception that each round will run as two untimed, 10-question halves—with a preliminary round robin followed by reseeding based on results from the round robin phase. Seeding in the individual sub-brackets will be determined by the overall win-loss record. Ties for reseedings will be resolved based on points per game, followed by points per bonus.

ELIGIBILITY: Only players who have less than two years of experience and have never been to a national tournament are eligible to play in this tournament. We will allow top middle school teams to play in the JV division, should they choose.

Base fee = $70 for one team, $60 after the first

Discounts will be given as follows:
-$5 for each fully-functional buzzer system (must have at least four working buzzers on both sides)
-$5 for traveling distances over 50 miles, one-way, according to Google Maps
-$15 per moderator. Must have a functioning laptop.
-$50 (new school discount) for any school that has competed in no more than 3 decent mACF-style or NAQT tournaments within the past year

Minimum fee = $40 per non-new team, $10 per new team.
