Post by Important Bird Area » Mon Mar 21, 2016 1:15 am

The Northern California Quiz Bowl Alliance, Los Cerros Middle School, and Monte Vista High School are pleased to announce that Los Cerros will host its first middle school quizbowl tournament on Sunday, April 17, 2016.

Location: This tournament will take place at Los Cerros Middle School, Danville, California.

Questions: We will be using NAQT Middle School Series #18. (For practice material similar to the questions we will use at the tournament, please consider the NAQT New Middle School Package.)

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: $70 per team

-$10 second or subsequent team from the same school

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

-$20 experienced moderator

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

Payment will be taken (by cash or check) at check-in on April 17th. Please make checks out to "Monte Vista Quizbowl Club."

How to register: please contact the tournament director, Jeff Hoppes (jeff.hoppes@gmail.com), on or before Monday, April 11th, indicating how many teams, buzzers, and staff your school plans to bring.
