University of Kentucky Spring Championship POSTPONED TO 4/11

Post by AKKOLADE » Tue Oct 28, 2014 7:51 pm

The University of Kentucky’s Quiz Bowl Team is pleased to announce our third University of Kentucky Spring Championship, a high school quiz bowl tournament we are hosting on our campus in Lexington, Kentucky on January 17th, 2015. The tournament will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the White Hall Classroom Building and should conclude no later than 5:30 p.m. Registration will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

This tournament will be using the GSAC set written by Maggie Walker High School. GSAC is traditionally one of the best received housewritten sets for the high school set, and is always one of my favorites. It should be a great set this year.

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 2015 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.
