Rhododendron Bowl ("Canceled" - Folded into Qblitz Rookie Challenges)

Post by AKKOLADE »

International Quiz Bowl Tournaments (IQBT) is pleased to announce will be hosting an online tournament for West Virginia teams on October 10, 2020. We will be using the IQBT Rookie Set. This question set is intended to be a solid introduction to quiz bowl for new players or teams.

The entry fee is $65 per team. Teams consist of 4 people per team, with two alternates allowed per team.

The exact method of hosting the tournament is to be determined, but it will likely be held over either Zoom or Discord.

Teams may be made up of up to six players. Schools are allowed to register multiple teams. Four players may play at a time for a team. Teams with less than four players are allowed. Once a player is assigned to a team’s roster at the start of the tournament, those players cannot be moved between teams.

The tournament will consist of preliminary rounds of round robins between small groups of teams, which will then be re-bracketed into groups of similar performance in the preliminary rounds. We will do everything we can to guarantee each team at least six games of play.

The top four teams will receive plaques or trophies for their performance. We will also recognize the highest scoring individual players.

Each match will consist of 20 tossups and 20 bonuses.

The deadline for registrations is October 3rd, 2020.

The tournament director will be Fred Morlan. If you're interested in registering, contact me via email at [email protected]

Thanks!

This tournament has been canceled as a standalone event. It has been folded into the Rookie Challenges we're running with Qblitz. A West Virginia champion will be recognized if there are sufficient teams registered.
