CSWIFT - November 2, 2013 - IS-130

Post by Jcarlson » Mon Sep 02, 2013 11:44 pm

Wilmington Charter is proud to announce it will be holding the Charter School of Wilmington Invitational Fall Tournament (CSWIFT) on Saturday, November 2, 2013.
The tournament is open to any high school team that wishes to attend. It will follow standard NAQT format and rules. We will be using set IS-130 for the Varsity Division and IS-129A for the JV division.

REGISTRATION:
To register, please fill out this form:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1s-FgtH ... k/viewform
The form requires coaches to write their email addresses, so all future updates or notifications about the tournament will be provided via email, as well as on this board. If you have any questions, either post on this board or send an email to charterquiz@gmail.com. We will answer all questions as promptly as possible.

LOGISTICS:
Wilmington Charter is located at 100 N. DuPont Rd, Wilmington, DE. Directions are here: https://maps.google.com/maps?ie=UTF-8&q ... =0CJEBEPwS
We will begin registration at 8 A.M., hold the morning meeting at 8:45 A.M., and begin playing at 9 A.M. We should optimally finish from around 4:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M.

FEES:
First team: $70
Subsequent teams: $60
Buzzer discount: -$10, cap of 3
Moderator discount: -$10, cap of 2
Traveling discount: -$10 per 40 miles traveled
Minimum price: $40

Bring checks to the tournament and fill them out to Charter School of Wilmington.

EDIT: As there was a cancellation, we currently have one team opening in the varsity division. Sign up ASAP for this last spot!
In addition, any team that brings an extra buzzer set will receive a discount (and be honored in Wilmington Charter's collective memory forever).

I commend you for using google forms for your registration, but how are you going to know how many teams from each school are JV or Varsity?

Also, is there any sort of logistical information that Charter could provide to teams at this point? (rounds, timings, playoff formats, etc). We'd appreciate anything.

EDIT: If our team chooses not to hear 129A in any form at CSWiFT, is it possible to receive some sort of documentation clarifying this in case another tournament opts to use that set?

Are there any restrictions as to who can play the JV set or the Varsity set, or is it by choice?

We are going to pull names out of a hat.

(JK...I am not the captain and no we are obviously not doing this...)

Good point though Noah...I think we will need to email each team and figure out how many of their teams they intend to place in the JV bracket. Thanks for pointing this out! :grin:

Each school can choose which of their teams will play the JV, and which of their teams will play the Varsity set. That being said, JV teams should probably be made up of players in their first year or two of quizbowl, and Varsity teams should be made of experienced players. Please use your discretion.

The JV teams will be playing an NAQT IS A-level packet, and the Varsity teams will be playing a regular NAQT IS-level packet, if that helps in the decision process.

I do not know the NAQT official rules on this matter, but we can surely provide you with a letter stating that you have not heard 129A. Is there any particular tournament you know about which is using this packet?

As for logistical information, we will begin registration at 8:00 and start play at 9:00. We will have a one hour lunch break, most likely from 12:00 to 1:00, in which we will serve food in our cafeteria.

Sorry for the relative lack of information; more will be forthcoming.

We need some way to find out which teams are playing JV or Varsity beforehand so we can determine bracketing.

IS #129A is not currently scheduled to be used elsewhere near New Jersey, but of course that might change in the future.

We do not generally require documentation of the sort described here, but in this kind of case it can be useful to keep some distance between the varsity and JV brackets (for instance, two nearby buildings, different floors of the same building, make sure that players from one division know to avoid watching the finals of the other division, etc.) The final decision is left up to the host school of the subsequent tournament using the overlapping set.

Thank you very much for the information!

Unfortunately, we only have one floor of one building available for use, but we will make sure to keep the rooms as far away from each other as possible and check with all spectators in a room that no people watching another division's finals will be playing another tournament with the same packet.

Hopefully, this will be sufficient; if not, is there anything else we can do about this?

That sounds fine. In general, making sure the players on the teams involved know about the situation in advance will prevent most problems.

How many of the teams currently registered are JV? I'm thinking of possibly bringing some of my freshmen and sophomore players, but not if the field for them is so small that they'll just be playing each other multiple times.

We will soon change the field listings to reflect the exact number of varsity and JV teams from each school.

As of now, however, our field is basically evenly split between varsity and JV. We currently have around 15 JV teams - enough to avoid unnecessary repeat matches or matches against other teams from your own school. (We would try to avoid that in any case.)

Hope this helps!

I can give you an update:

JV is finished.
1. Richard Montgomery C
2. Richard Montgomery D
3. Independence A
4. Longfellow A

In varsity, Walter Johnson is 9-0 and Richard Montgomery A is 8-1. If they both win in round 10, they play a final.

The statistician got a little behind, so a final version of this won't happen until tomorrow. BUT -- has anyone ever seen a situation like this? Specifically, does anyone know why it would list Walter Johnson as 6-0, but if you click onto the team you can see that they in fact played 7 matches? It has done this to a couple of teams, and we can't figure out why some matches aren't being included in the standings.

Thanks for any help you can give.

I turned it on, but I'm not sure it provides useful information because the varsity and JV brackets had different question sets.

I updated JV -- post any discrepancies here and I'll look into them. Unfortunately when I got "all" the computer scoresheets, I only grabbed the JV files. When I get the team to send me the missing varsity scores, I'll finish that.

Oh no, I meant (and poorly phrased it) that you might have excluded the necessary round numbers, or else there is a preexisting issue with round numbers.

Actually, Jeff figured it out for me. Deep Green had its "exhibition team" box checked.

I now have almost all matches. What is missing is the information from room 305A in the crossover phase. (Perhaps the scorekeeper forgot to hit save?) Does anyone have information on these matches? If no one has the individual details, I can put in forfeit wins if someone tells me who won.

Round 8: Henderson A v. Phoenixville A
Round 9: Thomas Jefferson B v. Phoenixville A
Round 10: Henderson A v. Moorestown Friends

Congrats to everyone in the top 6 of varsity -- you are HSNCT qualified. (How many PACE bids get awarded?)

Out of curiosity, one of the varsity brackets had a bye but the stats show each bye as a forfeited win. Will this be factored out when determing NSC qualifiers?

That was Varun Wadhwa's room. I will check with him to see who won those matches and if we can recover the scoresheets.

Phoenixville A won both of these matches, though I'm not exactly sure about scores.

Overall, I'd like to thank Charter for running an awesome tournament. Everything went smoothly, bracketing was done quickly, the mods knew exactly what they were doing, and everyone was accommodating and efficient.

Charter is checking today to find the records for that match; we should have records out by tonight.

I will check with our stats people, but I would assume that this would be factored out. It definitely should be.

We are platinum-certified for PACE. This means that the top 25% of teams in the tournament qualify. This is the top 5 teams for JV, and the top 4 teams for Varsity.

We have a gray, men's medium North Face jacket which was left at the tournament. Whose is this?

To claim, answer this question: Where did you have lunch on October 26th? (There's a receipt in the pocket.)

Thanks!

I don't believe this is correct:

If the tournament is an affiliated tournament, 15% of the teams in the top bracket will qualify. Similarly, if the tournament is platinum certified, 25% of the teams in the top bracket will qualify. The number of teams playing in a lower bracket does not impact how many teams qualify in the top bracket.
