Louisiana Tech will be hosting a mirror of NAQT's Collegiate Novice set 158C or 161AC (the easier one) on Saturday, September 24, 2016 on our campus in Ruston, LA. The tournament will begin at 9:30 AM in Davison Hall, with registration running from 9 AM to 9:25 AM. The tournament should be concluded by 5:00 PM at the latest. I, Nick Collins, will be the tournament director.

Base Fee: $15 per player
-$5 per fully functioning buzzer system
-$10 per 200 miles traveled (one way)
-$10 for a competent staffer with laptop
Minimum fee: $10 per player

Please bring cash or make a check out to Louisiana Tech University Quiz Bowl Team. If your team expects to have financial difficulties, please let us know. We're happy to work something out with you.

Eligibility Rules:

There are no official eligibility rules for this tournament, but keep in mind that this set is oriented towards introducing less experienced players and teams to college quiz bowl. We ask that teams use their best judgment in deciding which players would be considered "novice." If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask us. The tournament director reserves the right to deny any player permission to play, based on skill level.

Food:

Breakfast and lunch will not be provided, though there will be a lunch break. There are numerous eateries near the tournament site.

If you have any questions or would like to register, please email us at ncollins93 AT gmail.com. We hope to see you there!

We played a 10 team round robin. LSU A defeated Tulane in the first game of an advantaged final. Note that LSU A defeated LSU B in a coin flip after they were both pulled over on the way to the tournament and chose to coin flip their match against each other instead of delay the tournament significantly.

Clock management has been a problem for LSU today.
