I am pleased to announce the TENTH Western N.C. Shootout taking place at South Caldwell High School in Hudson, N.C. on February 25. The Western NC Shootout is an unofficial NAQT event using IS-164 and will follow the rules posted on http://www.naqt.com. We will be using untimed 20-question rounds throughout the tournament. The format will probably be round-robin followed by a championship bracket with consolation rounds, but adjustments may be made depending on the number of participating teams. Every team is guaranteed at least 6 rounds of play.
Onsite registration will be held in the South Caldwell High School student lobby beginning at 8:30 AM. A brief rules meeting will begin promptly at 9:00 AM followed by the first 4-5 matches. After lunch, there will be 4 additional matches and a brief awards ceremony. Interested teams should complete the online registration form as soon as possible to reserve their spot in the field.
To encourage schools to develop less-seasoned players, our tournament plans to use an ability matching system in the afternoon rounds. In the morning, our round-robin divisions should allow your students to compete against teams of a wide variety of ability levels, but in the afternoon, you should be able to play several rounds with teams of a similar record. Trophies will be presented to the tournament champion and runner-up, and top individual performers will also be recognized.
