Baby Anteater XV @ UC Irvine on January 14, 2017

Postby suicaqc » Mon Aug 22, 2016 3:30 pm

Quiz Bowl at UC Irvine is pleased to announce Baby Anteater XV, a regular-difficulty high school tournament.

DATE/TIME: Baby Anteater XV will take place on January 14, 2017. Check-in begins at 8:00 A.M., and rounds start at 9:00 A.M. We hope to end the tournament by around 5 - 6 P.M. including finals rounds if necessary.

There will be separate JV and Varsity divisions: Varsity division will use IS-160, and JV division will use IS-161A.
To be eligible for JV division, all players on the team must have:
-No more than two years of experience
-Never been to a National Tournament
-Won no more than three HS tournaments at the JV or Varsity level in a single academic year.

Note for Academic League participant schools from San Diego and Sweetwater Union:

Since the Varsity and JV set is being used by the San Diego Academic League, schools participating in that activity are prohibited from participate in our tournament unless they forfeit their right to participate in the San Diego Academic League. The JV set is being used by the Sweetwater Union Academic League, so no teams participating in that activity are able to register in our JV field. However, since the Varsity set is not being used by the Sweetwater Union Academic League, the schools may send Varsity teams without having to forfeit their right to participate in the Sweetwater Union Academic League.

Top 15% of the pool will qualify for the High School National Championship Tournament (HSNCT) held May 26-28 in Atlanta, Georgia. The top 25% of the Varsity field will qualify for the 2017 PASC National Scholastic Championship (NSC) held June 10-11 in Rosemont, IL. Top JV teams will NOT automatically qualify, but will be recommended to apply to either national tournaments' wildcard system.

LOCATION: Baby Anteater XV will take place at the student center of the University of California, Irvine, located at 311 W Peltason Dr, Irvine, CA 92697. Check in will be at Doheny Beach A. A map of campus can be found on the last page of the Google Form.

POST Reserved to updates to the PACE Certification and results from the tournament.

UPDATE 1 - Since the Varsity and JV set is being used by the San Diego Academic League, schools participating in that activity are prohibited from participate in our tournament unless they forfeit their right to participate in the San Diego Academic League. The JV set is being used by the Sweetwater Union Academic League, so no teams participating in that activity are able to register in our JV field. However, since the Varsity set is not being used by the Sweetwater Union Academic League, the schools may send Varsity teams without having to forfeit their right to participate in the Sweetwater Union Academic League.

UPDATE 2 - Our tournament is now certified PACE Platinum, meaning that 25% of our varsity field will qualify for the 2017 PACE NSC tournament in Rosemont, IL at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare on June 10 and 11.

EDIT: As of now, any new team registration will require one moderator per 2 teams (so if you plan on bringing 1 team, you must bring 1 moderator).

The field will be closing on Wednesday January 11 (this Wednesday) at 11:59PM PST.
