University of Kentucky Fall Championship - 11/22/2014 (BISB)

Post by AKKOLADE » Sun Jul 20, 2014 7:23 pm

The University of Kentucky’s Quiz Bowl Team is pleased to announce our second University of Kentucky Fall Championship, a high school quiz bowl tournament we are hosting on our campus in Lexington, Kentucky on November 22nd, 2014. The tournament will begin at 9 a.m. in the White Hall Classroom Building and should conclude no later than 5 p.m. Registration will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Last year's tournament hosted 48 teams from nine states. We hope we can expand the tournament this coming year.

We will be using the questions written for the 2014 Brookwood Invitational Scholars Bowl.

The tournament will consist of preliminary rounds of round robins between small groups of teams, which will then be re-bracketed into groups of similar performance in the preliminary rounds. We will do everything we can to guarantee each team at least seven games of play.

Each match will consist of 20 tossups and 20 bonuses. Teams may be made up of up to six players. Four players may play at a time for a team. Teams with less than four players are allowed. Once a player is assigned to a team’s roster at the start of the tournament, those players cannot be moved between teams.

The top four teams will receive plaques or trophies for their performance. We will also recognize the highest scoring individual players. The University of Kentucky Spring Championship will also pursue affiliation as a qualifying tournament for the 2014 PACE NSC.

Tyler Reid will be the Tournament Director and Allison Murner will be the Assistant Tournament Director.

We are going to limit our field to 36 teams at first. This is to ensure we have enough moderators to support our field. As we recruit more staff, we will expand the field as we are able to. Until then, we will have a waitlist, from which teams will be admitted into the field. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis.

Entry fees
  • The base fee is $80/team.
  • The minimum fee $40/team.
  • There is a $5 discount per working buzzer system
  • There is a $10 discount for traveling over 200 miles.
  • There is a $15 discount for each experienced moderator you can provide for the tournament; before claiming this discount, please contact us.
  • If your team has not played an independent pyramidal tournament between September 1, 2011 and September 1, 2014, you automatically qualify for the minimum entry fee of $40.
To register for this tournament or if you have any questions, email us at ukquizbowl@gmail.com.

Oak Ridge and Paintsville have registered, so we're up to 16 teams!

Also, we just emailed over 700 schools, so we're expecting a bunch of registration to come soon. I'd be shocked if we didn't expand our field to 48 again, but I'm not sure if it will go higher than that.

In a long overdue update (thanks, norovirus?!), we're up to 26 teams with a great field. Make it better by signing up!

Also, we're happy to announce that this tournament is part of the Goldenrod Cup. We're very excited to be part of that competition and encourage all Kentucky teams interested to sign up.

While you're considering how awesome this tournament, consider how awesome our upcoming Spring Championship will also be!

Both Fall and Spring will be part of the Goldenrod Cup as well.

Does definite interest = attendance or just "we're probably going to attend but we haven't settled it yet"?

Thanks to everyone for attending the second University of Kentucky Fall Championship!

Congratulations to Detroit Catholic Central A for winning the National Division in an advantaged final over Northmont A, as well as to Dunbar JV for winning the Standard Division with an undefeated record! Sam Blizzard of Northmont A led the National Division in scoring with 142.50 points per game, and Andrew Tonks from Lafayette A led the Standard Division (among players with more than 5 games played) with 73.75 points per game.

Full stats for both brackets can be found at http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/2283/. Please note that the Standard Division had many forfeits in the latter half of the day, so stats in that division vary greatly.

This was my first time acting as tournament director, so any comments on how the tournament went for you, whether positive or negative, would be greatly appreciated!

Again, thanks to everyone for coming, and we hope to see you at our Spring Championship on January 17th!

Just a minor bit of nitpicking - the final was actually not advantaged, both teams were 10-1 going into it.

If you don't want to be regarded as a "raving lunatic," it might be advisable to rave less, or at least to do so in a less loony manner.
