Big Lake Brawl III - (PA) - (182A) - (2/2/2019)

Post by RNeenan » Sun Oct 14, 2018 8:10 pm

The Big Lake Brawl III Tournament will take place at Wallenpaupack High School in Hawley, PA on Saturday February 2nd, 2019. We are located in NE PA, 15 minutes off I-84. We hope Phil will be nice and keep winter away for us =)

Set: IS-182 A. While we are looking to attract new teams from NEPA, all teams are welcome! We have a soft cap of 18, although that may be expanded to a hard cap of 24 if staffing and buzzer availability permits.

Standard rules will be in effect (powers, negs, etc., with sudden death overtime) with ACF timing (five seconds for everything). Formatting will be standard: round robin in the morning, with rebracketing and a round robin in the afternoon. A final/advantaged final will be played as necessary, with trophies for top teams and prizes for top scorers.

EDIT: We have just been GOLD certified by PACE.

Base Fee: $75 for the first team, $65 for each additional team.

Discounts:
-$5 per working buzzer brought for use in the tournament
-$15 per experienced staffer provided by the school.
-$10 for distance (>150 miles) (1 per school)
-$20 per school for new schools – schools that have not played quiz bowl for at least 2 years. For local schools, WVIA and IU tournaments do not count against you for this discount. (1 per school)

The minimum fee per team is $40.

Checks should be made to "WAHS Scholastics Team"

We will offer pizza for lunch on site, and snacks will be on sale all day. Prices and details TBD.

To sign up (or for further information) please email me at rneenan@gmail.com with how many teams you would like to register, number of buzzers, and staff. Then visit our site HERE if you need an invoice. As we hope to draw several new schools, we gladly welcome anyone with moderator experience living close to us to come to volunteer as well!

We look forward to hosting our third tournament and hope to see some new teams attend!
