Charter Challenge (MS-26), 3/10/18 @ Wilmington Charter

Postby insohumniac » Thu Dec 14, 2017 2:59 pm

The Charter School of Wilmington is pleased to announce the 2018 Charter Challenge Middle School Quizbowl Tournament, which will be held on Saturday, March 10th, 2018.

QUESTION SET:
The tournament will be run using NAQT’s MS-26 set. We will not be using computational math tossups.

LOGISTICS:

The tournament will be held at the Charter School of Wilmington (100 North Dupont Rd, Wilmington, DE, 19807). Registration will begin at 8:00 AM. Pizza will also be available for order during registration, which we will follow with an opening meeting. We will recap rules and explain the morning schedule during the opening meeting. We hope to have teams in rooms for round 1 by 9:00 AM.

We plan to run a schedule of 6 rounds in the morning, in preliminary pools of 6, with a round robin format. Each team will play a total of 5 rounds before lunch. The top 2 teams from each bracket will proceed to higher tiered playoffs, and the remaining teams will play consolation matches in the afternoon, with every team guaranteed a minimum of 10 rounds.

The field will be divided into two divisions : a Novice Division and an Experienced Division. The Novice Division is intended for schools sending teams with either younger or newer players, and will not directly qualify teams for NAQT's 2018 Middle School National Championship Tournament (MSNCT). The Experienced Division is intended for teams which regularly participate in quizbowl, and teams in this pool can qualify for MSNCT at this tournament.

We will impose a soft field cap of 36, but this may be increased depending on buzzer and moderator availability.

FEES:
Registration fees per team:
$70 for schools that regularly participate in pyramidal quizbowl
$60 for subsequent teams
$45 for schools that are new to pyramidal quizbowl (defined as any team that hasn’t participated in pyramidal quizbowl tournaments for at least 2 years)

DISCOUNTS:
-$5 per each fully functional buzzer set
-$10 for experienced moderators
-$10 for teams traveling over 150 miles (one way distance via Google Maps)

Minimum fees:
-$45 for schools that regularly participate in pyramidal quizbowl.
-$25 for teams that have not played pyramidal quizbowl in the past two years.

Registration fees can be paid through cash or by check. Checks should be made to The Charter School of Wilmington with Academic Bowl on the memo line. We will process your registration fee and provide your team with an invoice by lunch. While payment the day of the tournament is preferable, we will accept payment through the mail. Mail should be addressed to The Charter School of Wilmington, with Academic Bowl on the memo line, at 100 N. Dupont Rd, Wilmington, DE, 19807.

Please sign up for this tournament here.
