Big Lake Brawl IV - (191 A) (PA) - 2/1/2020

Post by RNeenan » Mon Oct 21, 2019 9:02 am

The Big Lake Brawl IV Tournament will take place at Wallenpaupack High School in Hawley, PA on Saturday February 1st, 2020. We are located in NE PA, 15 minutes off I-84.

Set: IS-191 A. While we are looking to attract new teams from NEPA, all teams are welcome! We have a soft cap of 18, although that may be expanded to a hard cap of 24 if staffing and buzzer availability permits.

Standard rules will be in effect (powers, negs, etc., with sudden death overtime) with ACF timing (five seconds for everything). Formatting will be standard: bracketed round robin in the morning, with rebracketing based on record and a round robin in the afternoon. A final/advantaged final/tiebreaker will be played as necessary, with trophies for top teams and prizes for top scorers. Comp Math Tossups will not be used, but comp math bonuses will be.

We expect we will be Gold certified by PACE, as in the past.

Lastly, we do expect to have a (shorter) lunch time contest as we did last year.

Base Fee: $75 for the first team, $65 for each additional team.

Discounts:
-$5 per working buzzer brought for use in the tournament
-$15 per experienced staffer provided by the school.
-$10 for distance (>150 miles) (1 per school)
-$20 per school for new schools – schools that have not played quiz bowl for at least 2 years. For local schools, WVIA and IU tournaments do not count against you for this discount. (1 per school)

The minimum fee per team is $40. If local new schools have trouble with this fee, please contact me.

Checks should be made to "WAHS Scholastics Team"

We will offer pizza for lunch on site, as there is not much fast food in the area, and snacks will be on sale all day. Prices and details TBD.

To sign up (or for further information) please email me at rneenan AT gmail.com with how many teams you would like to register, number of buzzers, and staff. Invoices will be send asap, and will also be available on our website. As we hope to draw several new schools, we gladly welcome anyone with moderator experience living close to us to come to volunteer as well!

We look forward to hosting our fourth tournament and hope to see some new teams attend! Please contact me here or at the above email if you have any questions.
