Post by njsbling » Fri Oct 05, 2018 3:13 am

The Sacramento Winter Middle School Tournament is taking place on Saturday, December 1 at Leonardo da Vinci K-8 School in Sacramento. This competition features separate JV and Varsity divisions.

Location: LdV is located at 4701 Joaquin Way, Sacramento, CA. Registration will begin at 9:00AM and we plan to start round 1 at 9:30AM.

Questions: We will be using NAQT Middle School Series #28. (For practice material similar to the questions we will use at the tournament, please consider the NAQT New Middle School Package).

The top 15% of teams will qualify for the 2019 NAQT Middle School National Championship Tournament, to be held in Chicago in May, 2019.

Eligibility: All middle schools (public, private, charter, religious, homeschool, etc.) are eligible to play in this event. This tournament is open to any players who have not yet completed 8th grade, though the questions are targeted at 7th and 8th graders.

Schools are encouraged to enter multiple teams, but please note that players must play for the same team throughout the tournament.

Bay Area schools can register beginning on Monday, October 29. The questions used at this tournament will also be used in the Bay Area (most likely on Nov 11).

Fees:

Base fee: $60 per team

-$30 for schools that played zero quiz bowl tournaments during the 2017-2018 school year (per team)

-$10 per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)

-$20 per staffer (We will hold a brief training session during check-in for those volunteers who have never kept score before.)

This tournament is free for schools from the Sacramento City Unified School District and for schools from Nevada.

Minimum entry fee: $0

Payment (cash or check) will be taken at check-in on December 1.
