PPT III @ Canyon Crest Academy (10/12/2019) - San Diego, CA

Post by Nameless »

CCA Quizbowl would like to announce the 2019-2020 season opener, Powered Points Tournament III (PPT III)! There will be two divisions, JV and Varsity, using the IS-185A and IS-186 NAQT sets respectively.

LOCATION: Canyon Crest Academy, 5951 Village Center Loop Road, San Diego, CA 92130. The matches will most likely be held in the D and E buildings on the first floor.

DATE: The tournament will be held on Saturday, October 12th, 2019. Check-in will begin at 8:30 am in E101, and the first round should begin around 9 am. Schedules and roster confirmation sheets will be available after check-in.

QUESTIONS: The tournament will feature one JV division playing the NAQT IS-185A set and a Varsity division playing the NAQT IS-186 set.

FORMAT: Teams will be allowed to have up to 6 players, but only 4 players can play at one time. Teams with more than 6 players will be asked to split into two teams. Teams will only be allowed to make substitutions at halftime.
The tournament will adhere to official NAQT rules—with the exception that each round will run as two untimed, 10-question halves—with a preliminary round robin followed by reseeding based on results from the round robin phase. Seeding in the individual sub-brackets will be determined by the overall win-loss record. Ties for reseedings will be resolved based on points per game, followed by points per bonus.

ELIGIBILITY: To play in the JV division of this tournament, players must not have: greater than 50 PPG on a NAQT IS-A set or greater than 30 PPG on a NAQT IS set. Anyone is welcome to play in the Varsity division.

Base fee = $80 for one team, $70 after the first

$40 for any team that has not competed in a decent, mACF-style or NAQT tournament in the past 2 years.

Discounts will be given as follows:
-$5 for each fully-functional buzzer system (must have at least four working buzzers on both sides)
-$5 for traveling distances over 50 miles, one-way, according to Google Maps
-$10 per moderator. Must have a functioning laptop.

Minimum fee: $55 per team.

Please make checks payable to: CCA ASB. Please do not make checks out to any other person or entity. Checks or cash will be due at the start of the tournament during registration.

REGISTRATION: The directors for this tournament are Raymond Song and Shreyank Kadadi. The advisor of this tournament will be Mr. Brian Shay. If you are interested in attending, sign up through this link (opens 9/9/19): https://www.naqt.com/go/register/10940

Preliminary field cap: 30, but is subject to change.

There is a waitlist for team that register more than 3 teams across both divisions.

Updates of the tournament will be made primarily through the SoCal Quiz Bowl Facebook, by email, and on this forum post.

FOOD: A light breakfast will be provided in E101. The shopping center across Village Center Loop Drive (about a 5-10 minute walk away) has food options such as Panera Bread, Trader Joe's, Fresh Brothers (pizza), and Luna Grill.
