NY Quizbowl Championship @ Ithaca HS (3/29/14)

Post by Mewto55555 »

HSAPQ, in conjunction with the New York Quizbowl Championship Association, is pleased to announce our New York Quizbowl Championship at Ithaca High School on March 29! This tournament will feature the top 4 finishing teams at each of the regional tournaments at SUNY-Buffalo, Ithaca High School, and Columbia University on March 1.

Both the regional events and the New York Quizbowl Championship will use HSAPQ’s 8-8-8 format: a first and third period of 8 powermarked tossups followed by a one-part bonus read to the team whose player correctly answered the tossup, and a second period of 8 directed bonus parts, 4 for each team. This format is designed to provide quicker-moving games to keep new teams engaged, piquing their interest in quizbowl and drawing them to regular local events.

To register for your nearest regional tournament, or to find out more information, please visit http://www.nyquizbowl.com!

Emails went out today with logistic updates and requests for any unconfirmed teams to confirm or decline. Anyone who thinks they've qualified but haven't gotten at least two emails about it should let us know.
