10/26/19 - Johns Hopkins Fall Tournament

Post by vh42 »

Johns Hopkins University is pleased to announce the Johns Hopkins Fall Quizbowl Tournament, which will take place on October 26th, 2019.

The tournament will take place at Johns Hopkins University, located at 3400 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218. Room locations will be in Gilman Hall. A map of campus can be found here: http://cis.jhu.edu/images/campus_map_0907.pdf. Parking is available at the South Garage, at a flat rate of $9 for the day.

Entry Fees and Discounts:
Base Fee: $70 per team
Buzzers: -$5 per each working buzzer system
Staffing: -$10 per competent staffer (limit one per team)

Payment must be made on the day of the tournament either by cash or check only. Please make checks out to "Johns Hopkins University."

This tournament will follow official NAQT rules (which can be viewed at http://www.naqt.com/rules.html) with slight modifications on timing.

Question Set:
We will be using NAQT IS-188, which is a regular High School difficulty set.

Pizza will be sold near lunch time, and various restaurants may be found in the vicinity of campus. To see a full list, please visit http://web.jhu.edu/cogsci/visitors/restaurants.html.

Team and Roster Size:
There is a maximum of 6 players on a team; up to four members may play at once. We recommend no more than four members on a team, so that students may play the maximum number of rounds.

Team Limit:
Until one week prior to the registration deadline (October 12), only three teams from a school may register. Subsequent teams (up to an additional two, for five total) from the same school will be placed on the wait list. Following October 12, two additional teams from that school on the wait list will be moved off of the wait list and registered (assuming that there are spots still open).

To register, please fill out the following form (https://forms.gle/2bWBZStEepEpSsDe8) by October 6. The field will initially be capped at 18 teams.

Registered Teams (16/18):
School (Number of teams/Buzzers/Staffers)
Centennial (5/5/0)
Quince Orchard (1/1/0)
Baltimore City College (2/0/0)
Richard Montgomery (3/2/0)
