Post by njsbling » Wed Jul 01, 2015 3:04 am

The Northern California Quiz Bowl Alliance and Rio Americano HS are pleased to announce that Rio will host the first Sacramento MS tournament on Sunday, September 20.

Location: This tournament will take place at Rio Americano HS, Sacramento, California. Registration will begin at 9:30AM and we hope to start round 1 at 10:00AM. We will have a field cap of 12 teams.

Questions: We will be using NAQT Middle School Series #15. (For practice material similar to the questions we will use at the tournament, please consider the NAQT New Middle School Package and the 2013 Collaborative Middle School Tournament.)

The top 15% of teams will qualify for the 2016 NAQT Middle School National Championship Tournament, to be held in Atlanta, Georgia on May 7-8, 2016.

Eligibility: All middle schools (public, private, charter, religious, homeschool, etc.) are eligible to play in this event. This tournament is open to any players who have not yet completed 8th grade, though the questions are targeted at 7th and 8th graders.

Schools are encouraged to enter multiple teams, but please note that players must play for the same team throughout the tournament.

Fees:

Base fee: $60 per team

-$10 working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)

-$10 staffer (We will hold a brief training session during check-in for those volunteers who have never kept score before.)

-$10 per school for Bay Area teams

Minimum entry fee: $15 per team

Payment will be taken at check-in on Sept 20. Please make checks out to Rio Americano HS.

How to register: please contact the tournament director, Nicholas Karas (njsking (at) hotmail (dot) com), on or before Wednesday, September 16, indicating how many teams, buzzers, and staff your school plans to bring.
