RUST @ Rice (BHSAT 2017, 3/25/17, Houston, TX)

Postby uws10024 » Sat Jan 07, 2017 1:49 pm

The Rice University Quizbowl Club is pleased to announce the Rice University Spring Tournament (RUST), which will be held on March 25th, 2017. This tournament is open to all high school teams. We intend to apply for platinum certification from PACE, meaning that the top 25% of the field will qualify for PACE NSC 2017.

Logistics

Check-in will begin at 8:00 A.M., and the opening meeting will start at 8:40, with matches beginning at 9:00. Upon your arrival, your team will need to submit any buzzers for discounts, and then we will collect money for entry fees and lunch ($8 per sandwich from Jimmy John’s, free drinks). Lunch will take place between noon and 12:45, immediately following round 6 or 7, depending on when the food arrives. An email containing all information regarding logistics (parking, payment, etc.) will be sent to participating teams a few days prior to the tournament.

Format

This tournament will be run using BHSAT 2017, more information can be found here. The schedule will depend on the number of registered teams, but more than likely, it will be a round robin amongst preliminary brackets, and then rebracket for a playoff round robin. We will use NAQT rules, without a timer. We will set an initial field cap at 12 teams due to staff restrictions, and will maintain a waitlist for additional teams. Until we can raise the field cap, we’ll also set a cap of two teams from each school.

Entry Fees

$75 base fee for first team, $65 base fee for all additional teams. Minimum fee is $50 per team.
-$5 per functional buzzer system (applied to first team, must be functional buzzers)
-$10 per approved moderator (applied to first team)
-$40 for schools who have not played pyramidal quizbowl in the past three years (overrides minimum fee, applied to each team)

To register for this tournament, please fill out this google form here. If you have any questions, you may either reply in this thread or email me at hjp1 AT rice DOT edu.
