QuBIT IV (2/24/18) Lincroft, NJ [FACTS]

Postby DogeofVenice » Sat Dec 23, 2017 4:41 pm

High Technology High School is pleased to announce our fourth annual Quiz Bowl Invitational Tournament (QuBIT IV), which will take place on Saturday, February 24th, 2018. We'll be mirroring the FACTS set by TJHSST and Charter.

QuBIT IV will be held at High Technology High School, 765 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft, NJ 07738. Free Parking will be available in our lot, as well as in Brookdale Community College, parking lot # 4.

On the day of the tournament, teams can sign in from 8:00 AM to 8:30 AM. The first round will start at 8:45 AM.

There will be trophies for the top four teams, as well as book prizes for the top ten scorers in the prelims.

Registration:

Registration for this tournament will only be accepted through this form, which will be kept open until the end of February 22nd.

Note: Our school district requests a certificate of insurance from each participating school before the day of competition. This no-cost certificate of insurance is requested through your school business office, asking your insurance company to issue a certificate indicating that the students are covered by insurance when participating at QuBIT. Further details regarding this will be sent after you register for the tournament.

Question Set:

We will be mirroring the FACTS set. More information can be found here.

Format

Registration will be capped at 24 teams for now, and I am currently limited the field to three teams per school. If there is enough demand, we may expand the field at a later date.

Prelims will have four groups of six teams, with each team playing five games before lunch. After lunch, playoffs will be three groups of eight. Wins and losses in the morning will carry over to the afternoon, so each team is guaranteed six playoff rounds. Advantage finals will then be played between the top two teams to determine the overall champion.

Fee Structure:

$80 for the first team, with $75 for each additional team. (No more than six players per team; only four players playing at a time).
-$5 per working buzzer system, no limit.
-$10 per moderator, no limit.
Minimum fee of $50 per team.

Payment:

Make all checks out to “High Tech Student Activities Account.” We prefer payment on the day of the tournament, but if this is against your school's policy, then feel free to mail them to High Tech’s address, as listed above. If you plan mailing a check to us, have "Attention: Dr. R. Eng" on the envelope to ensure the check gets to the right place. We also accept cash. No other forms of payment will be accepted.

Food:

A complimentary breakfast of bagels and juice will be provided to all teams. For lunch, we would prefer if teams stayed on-site in order to prevent delays, but we will also distribute a list of local eateries. We will be offering pizza for sale at lunch at $12 a pie. If you would like to order, please indicate the number of pies on the Google form. Beverages will also be available for purchase at lunch.

If you have any questions about this tournament, please contact me at dosimons@ctemc.org or post below.

We look forward to seeing you in February!

The field for QuBIT has filled up, so we will now be allowing schools to register a fourth team for the waitlist. We will expand the field if there is enough interest, so make sure you fill out the form to get first dibs if those spots open up!
