JP Stevens Hawk's Nest (1/09/2021)

Post by Karan_GeoHP »

Hello Quiz Bowlers!
My name is Karan Menon, I am a sophomore studying at USC and currently the coach of the JP Stevens Quiz Bowl team (as well as the USC Captain).

JP Stevens is proud to announce that we are hosting our first annual Hawk's Nest tournament on Saturday, January 9th, 2021 on Discord. It will serve as a qualifier for NAQT's High School National Championship Tournament (HSNCT) and the Small School National Championship Tournament (SSNCT). Although we don't have any official geographic restrictions, as we are based in Central Jersey we will prioritize teams located in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut.

Director: Karan Menon

Date: January 9th, 2021 at 9 AM EST

Set: IS-199 (Regular difficulty)

Rules: We will use standard ACF timing rules with 20 tossups and no timed halves. We will not use computational math bonuses or tossups. Live statistics will be posted on neg5 during the tournament. Trophies will be mailed to the top 3 teams. Book prizes will be mailed to the top 10 individual scorers, as well as the contestant with the most negs.

Registration: The link to register is here: https://www.naqt.com/registration/regis ... &type=TEAM and is already open.
The tournament listing is here: https://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/6658/

The following fee structure will be used:
$65: first team
$55: subsequent teams
$-15: team-provided staff discount (must have a functional laptop)

We currently have a soft cap of 24 teams, but will consider expanding this cap if there is more interest. There is no limit on how many teams each school registers.

Please email our club email: [email protected] or me at [email protected] if you have any questions.

I believe it was a typo, but what specifically will be mailed to the top 3 teams?
