CATT XIV @ Chattahoochee High School (11/10/18 - HFT XIII)

Post by hwufeng19 » Fri Aug 31, 2018 2:21 pm

Chattahoochee High School is pleased to announce the 14th Annual CATT (Chattahoochee Academic Team Tournament).
Our tournament will be held on November 10th, at Chattahoochee High School:
5230 Taylor Road
Johns Creek, GA 30022


Format:
We will have two divisions: Varsity and JV. Both divisions will play with the same rules. We are planning on a field cap of 56 total teams.
Each team will play preliminary rounds in the morning and playoff rounds in the afternoon.
Lunch (pizza) will be served after prelims and concessions will be available for purchase.
The rules/format of the tournament are subject to change depending on how large the field is.
Trophies/plaques will go to the top teams in each division.
We are planning to keep individual stats.

Cost:
The cost will be $65 per team, and $60 for each additional team sent.
There will be a $5 discount for each working buzzer system (limit 2).
There is a $20 "distance" discount for each team that is over 100 miles away (calculated from the shortest route on Google Maps) or from a different state than GA.
Registration payment can be brought in the day of the tournament or mailed ahead of time.
Lunch will be $5 and will consist of two slices of pizza, a bag of chips, and a water or soft drink.

Volunteering:
Readers, thank you; our tournament depends on you! Readers will receive a free lunch; if coaches can read or you can spare some volunteers to read or help out, it would be greatly appreciated. Coaches who volunteer to read only have to read during the prelim rounds. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the volunteering sign up form. Thanks for your help!

Rules:
We will be mirroring HFT (Harvard Fall Tournament), which is a regular-plus difficulty high school set, slightly more difficult than an NAQT IS set. Details on the set can be found below:
http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic. ... 09&t=21383

Rounds are 20/20 with one tiebreaker tossup if needed. Both divisions will use powers (15) and negs (-5). Five players are allowed per team. We will not use bouncebacks, and substitutes are allowed after each game only (rules are subject to change based on future field size).

If you have any questions please post here or email mathism1@fultonschools.org . Please include "CATT XIV" in the subject.

Thank you and hope to see you at the tournament!

UPDATE:
We will be capping the Varsity division at 30 TEAMS

Robert,
The tournament will probably start around 9 a.m. and end at around 5 p.m., but changes in field might change those times.
