FALSE (Florida Academic LONE STAR Event) - 01/16/21

Post by jordan.davidsen »

I am incredibly excited to announce that FALSE (Florida Academic LONE STAR Event) will be taking place on 01/16/21! This tournament will be Tournament Directed by Jordan Davidsen (Yale University, formerly Vanguard High) and will be Assistant Tournament Directed by Joshua Nwakoby (MIT, formerly Vanguard High) and Graham Cope (University of Florida, formerly Vanguard High). The tournament will begin at 9 AM EST.

ELIGIBILITY

This tournament is restricted to Florida high school teams that have not played LONE STAR in any other tournament this season. There is no regional boundary, teams from all parts of Florida can participate. This is a closed tournament, meaning that all 4 players MUST attend the same school at the time in which the tournament is run.

FORMAT AND RULES

The tournament will be run on Discord. The tournament will begin at 9AM EST. We will be capping the tournament at 32 teams. 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 in the interest of time.

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

COST

The tournament will cost $60 for the first team, and $50 for every subsequent team. Schools who have never played a quizbowl tournament before or who have never played online before will receive a $10 discount. Payments may be given by Venmo, Paypal, or check.

REGISTRATION

Registration for teams as well as registration to staff can be done here: https://forms.gle/rrYegvUPKFn53hRRA. Staffers will be paid $20 for their services.

CODE OF CONDUCT

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.

If you have any further questions, please contact [email protected]. Thanks and we are so excited to see you in January!
