2018 EB Bears Pre-Nationals Tournament @ East Brunswick NJ

Post by jshoung » Mon Mar 05, 2018 10:46 pm

Hi All! Hopefully many of you have enjoyed this year's EB FunFest, or perhaps last year's EB Bears Tournament! I'll be taking over (kinda) from Joe, and I'm stoked to announce the second

Date: April 21, 2018

Time: Registration will open at 7:45, and the moderator meeting will be at 8:45. You must arrive by 8:30.

Packet: NAQT ICT - Please note that this packet is more difficult than IS sets, and that this tournament is largely intended to be in preparation for nationals (HSNCT or PACE NSC).
A sample can be found at http://tinyurl.com/ictd2sample

Location: East Brunswick High School (380 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick, NJ)

Format: Currently the field cap is set at 28 teams, which will be expanded if necessary.
For now, there is a max 3 teams per school limit, but it is possible that we might increase this if the field is expanded. Additional teams will be put on a waitlist.

Rules: As this tournament is only a few weeks before HSNCT, we will follow all standard NAQT Rules. For timing, however, we will use 12 minute halves, as opposed to the 9 minute halves at HSNCT, to account for the difficulty of this set. There are no computational math tossups or bonuses in this set.

Lunch: If you wish to order pizza, there is a field in the registration form to order. There is also a Chipotle, Halal Guys, Sarku Japan, Smashburger, and Pie Five all within a walking distance from the school, as well as many nearby fast food options on Route 18.

Considering the nationals preparation atmosphere we are fostering with this tournament, we would LOVE to see strong teams from other regions compete in our tournament! That's why this year, we will be offering a travel discount of $10 per 100 miles traveled by a team one way, according to Google Maps, although minimum fee of $50 per team still applies. See below for more info!

  • First team: $80
    Subsequent teams: $70
    Minimum fee per team: $50
    Experienced moderator : -$10
    Buzzer set: -$5
    Distance discount: -$10 per 100 miles traveled one way according to Google Maps
Please bring either cash or a check written out to East Brunswick High School to check-in.
