Chris Girard Memorial Tournament (11/14, Online, KY, IS 195)

Post by TylerReid »

The Kentucky Quizbowl Alliance is pleased to announce the Chris Girard Memorial Tournament, an online high school quiz bowl tournament taking place on Saturday, November 14th, 2020. This tournament is closed to only Kentucky teams, and will be using NAQT IS-195.

We are initially limiting the field to 24 teams, but will have a waitlist and consider expanding the field if we have enough interest. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. We are initially limiting schools to 2 teams, with additional teams from a school being placed on the waitlist until other schools have had a chance to register. The exact format will be determined after we have a better idea of how many teams will be participating, but we intend to provide a minimum of 10 rounds of play.

This tournament will be taking place on Discord. We have explored several options and concluded that Discord is the best platform for our purposes. If using Discord might be problematic for your team, please contact us. We will be using buzzin.live as our buzzer system. We are currently in discussions on whether or not to require video and will have an announcement on that as soon as possible.

Each match will be untimed and consist of 20 tossups and 20 three-part bonuses. Teams may consist of up to four players, meaning there are no substitutes allowed. Teams with less than four players are allowed. Once players are assigned to a team’s roster at the start of the tournament, those players cannot be moved between teams. We will be using both powers and negs, and bonuses will not bounce back.

Entry fees:
The base fee is $60 for the first team from a school, and $50 for all additional teams from that school.
There is a $30 discount if your team is new to quiz bowl. If you think you may be eligible for this discount, please contact us.

Payment:
Please make checks payable to:
KQBA
8019 Broadfern Dr.
Louisville, KY, 40291

If you would like to register, please fill out this Google Form. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].
