(11/14/2020) LONE STAR Main Site

Post by Subotai the Valiant, Final Dog of War »

Hello all,
LONE STAR is pleased to announce that we will be hosting our “Main Site” mirror on Saturday, 11/14/2020! All teams from the the following states may play: Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Arizona. We are also accepting teams from the Southeastern US who were not able to play in Vanderbilt’s mirror of LONE STAR on 10/31.

The tournament will be held online on Discord, starting at 9 AM CST. At least 8 rounds, tossups and bonuses, are guaranteed for all teams playing. We are intending to have a 24-team field.

LONE STAR is a high school regular difficulty set. More details can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=109&t=24121

Every team must be composed of players from the same school. Pricing will be $70 for the first team from each school and $65 for all following teams. Payments may be given by Paypal, Venmo, or check.
This form can be used to either register teams or to sign up for staffing the tournament: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1RZsDrC ... 0cFLqxus2I
Staffers will be paid at least $20 for their day of work.

We are using ACF rules (linked here: https://acf-quizbowl.com/gameplay-rules/). Players will have 5 seconds at the end of a tossup to answer and 8 seconds after a buzz to answer. This will be strictly enforced.

All players should follow the PACE Code of Conduct, linked here: http://www.pace-nsc.org/nsc-code-of-conduct/. Prohibited behavior will be dealt with seriously by tournament staff and can further be reported to national organizations; the form for doing so can be found with the list of prohibited behaviors in the Code of Conduct. Additionally, all players will have to type out an anti-cheating pledge during the tournament itself, and all cheating allegations will be dealt with seriously.
