Postby Eddie » Tue Feb 07, 2017 3:47 am

Madison High School is pleased to announce its fifth annual Warhawk Invitational, to be held on Sunday, 30 April 2017. The tournament director for this event will be Eddie Kim.

DATE/TIME: The tournament will be held on Sunday, 30 April 2017. Check-in will begin at 8:00 AM, and matches will begin promptly at 9:00 AM. Teams will be required to attend a mandatory informational meeting at 8:45 AM.

LOCATION: The tournament will be held on the campus of Madison High School, located at 4833 Doliva Dr, San Diego, CA 92117. Teams will meet in the cafeteria, and games will be held in the 100, 200, 300, and 400 buildings.

TOURNAMENT FORMAT: The tournament will have two separate divisions. The upper division will use NAQT IS-165A, and is suitable for novice high school teams and motivated nationals-caliber middle school teams. The lower division will use NAQT MS-22, and is suitable for middle school teams of all skill level. Both divisions will adhere to official NAQT rules, with the exception that matches will be run as untimed halves of ten questions each. Only the upper division will use computational math tossups and bonuses. The tournament is not a qualifier for the 2017 High School National Championship Tournament (HSNCT). The top 15% of middle school teams will qualify for the 2017 Middle School National Championship Tournament (MSNCT), with all upper division-teams ranked above all lower division-teams for the sake of qualification.

ELIGIBILITY: All high school students in grades 9 or 10 (or equivalent) are eligible to play in the upper division. High school students are not eligible to play in the lower division. All middle school students are eligible to play in any division. At the tournament director's sole discretion, particularly talented individuals may have their eligibility in the upper division restricted on the basis of factors including but not limited to skill level and previous tournament performances.

Hi everyone,

This is just a friendly reminder that space is filling up quickly - only six more spots remain in the upper division, and only four more spots remain in the lower division. We will start admitting waitlisted teams on 17 April 2017 if these spots remain unclaimed.
