NAQT Collegiate Novice (168C) @ Carnegie Mellon (9/23)

Postby setophaga » Thu Aug 31, 2017 10:30 am

Carnegie Mellon University will be hosting a mirror of IS-168C, NAQT's collegiate novice tournament, on September 23. The tournament will take place in Porter Hall, and teams should arrive by 9:30 AM. The field has a tentative cap of 8 teams for now, although we are willing to expand pending interest. EDIT: the cap has been expanded to 12 teams and will expand as necessary until unfeasible for our club's staffing resources.

$15 per player
-$5/team per buzzer system (max of 2)
-$10/team per moderator
-$10/team if your school did not attend any tournaments in the 2016/17 year
Minimum fee: $40 per team

Please email Srishti Srivastava at with the number of teams, number of players on each team, and any discounts you plan to claim. All checks should be made out to "Carnegie Mellon University". Please also indicate if you have players who must apply to play under the eligibility criteria (see below).

Following suggestions last year, we will be adapting the eligibility requirements of VCU’s 2015 Novice Tournament:

1.This is a tournament for introducing collegiate novices to quizbowl. Consequently, no high school teams or players are eligible.
2. Anyone (who does not break Rule 1) who has never played quizbowl before is automatically eligible. Other academic competition does not count as quizbowl for this rule.
3. Players meeting one or more of the following criteria must apply to the tournament director for special permission to play:
If you have already completed your second year of college (calculated from time in college, not credits). Time in a post-secondary high school program does not count.
(i) If you have ever finished in the top 20 in scoring at PACE NSC or top 35 in scoring at NAQT HSNCT, or played on a team that finished in the top 16 at NSC or t-21 at HSNCT.
(ii) If you ever lead a team in scoring that made it beyond the first round of the HSNCT playoffs, or lead a team in scoring that made the top playoff bracket of NSC [the last two years, this has been the top 24 teams].
(iii) If you have ever scored at least 30 points per game at any college tournament.
(iv) If you have ever won any college tournament.
4. Anyone who does not fall into any of the four categories listed in Rule 3 is automatically eligible to play.
