EBHS Funfest VI - 02/20/2021 [HS Closed]

Post by PieInTheSky »

Hello everyone!

We are pleased to announce our sixth(!!!!!!) annual

East Brunswick Funfest!

Date: Saturday, February 20th, 2021

Time: Registration starts on Wednesday, 12/16/2020. Please sign up by Wednesday, February 17th, 2021. The tournament will start at 9:00 AM sharp on February 20th. Please be awake and logged in to the Discord tournament server by 8:30 AM.

Location: The tournament will take place on a dedicated Discord server. The link to the server will be sent to teams by email.

Set: IS-198A

Rules: This tournament will use tossups and bonuses. We will use standard ACF timing rules with 20 tossups and no timed halves - however, due to the online nature of the tournament, we are increasing the time to answer tossups and bonuses to 7 seconds. We are not changing the time to buzz after a tossup has been read, which is 5 seconds as per ACF guidelines. We will use computational math bonuses, but not computational math tossups. Cameras will be required for all players. Live statistics will be posted on https://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/6733/ during the tournament.

Registration:

This tournament will be restricted to NJ, NY, CT, and PA teams.

"Open" teams are not allowed; you must play with people from your school.

The field is currently capped at 24 teams, but we will expand it if sufficient interest is shown. There is no limit to the number of teams a school can send.

Fees:

$75 / First team
$65 / Subsequent teams
$15 / Experienced moderators (must be familiar with moderating Discord tournaments)
Minimum cost of $45 per team.

We will be accepting payments only by check. Checks should be made out to East Brunswick High School. The address on the envelope should be:

East Brunswick High School
380 Cranbury Rd
East Brunswick, NJ 08816
Attn: L. Fitzpatrick-Laurie, Academic Team

Send them ASAP, as we would like all of the payments in by the day of the tournament. If you are unable to do so, or if you need an invoice, contact [email protected].

We take inappropriate behavior at our tournaments very seriously. If you feel the need to report an incident of misconduct, we strongly encourage you to contact us (a moderator and/or a TD) and to fill out this anonymous form: https://tinyurl.com/qbmisconduct

Finally, registration for the tournament can be found here: https://www.naqt.com/go/register/12138

Please direct any questions you have to [email protected].

We hope to see you soon!
