Blacksburg High Academic Invitational V - 12/14/19 - Blacksburg, VA - NAQT IS-186

Post by mithokie » Wed Oct 02, 2019 7:34 am

Blacksburg High School in Blacksburg, VA will host the fifth Blacksburg High Academic Invitational on Saturday December 14, 2019.

The tournament will be using NAQT's IS-186 for our question set.

We will seek affiliation with PACE for qualification for PACE-NSC. The tournament will give teams a chance to qualify for all high school NAQT championships for which they are eligible according to school size. All matches will be played in standard un-timed 20 toss-ups/20 bonuses format with powers and negs. The tournament format will consist of some form of round-robin bracketed preliminaries followed by a re-bracketed playoffs to give all teams as many meaningful and competitive matches as possible. The exact format will be highly dependent upon the final number of teams in the field.
