Post by UkyEmilyG »

Post Tournament Update: Congratulations to our champions Dunbar A! Stats can be found here: https://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/6762/

The University of Kentucky Quiz Bowl Team is pleased to announce the University of Kentucky Spring Championship, a high school quiz bowl tournament taking place on Saturday, March 20, 2021. Due to the current circumstances, we will be hosting the tournament remotely through an online format. The tournament will begin by 9 AM EST and we hope to conclude no later than 5 PM.

This tournament is regionally closed, so it will only be open to Kentucky teams and teams from surrounding areas.

Registration

This tournament will be run through Google Meet, in addition to buzzin.live for buzzing and naqt.com for question distribution. Before the tournament and after registration ends, we will schedule meetings with all registered coaches to make sure that school Internet connections allow them to connect to outside Google Meets.

NAQT.com link: https://www.naqt.com/registration/field ... t_id=12143

We will have a tentative cap of 16 teams. Teams can register anytime before Wednesday, March 17. We ask that a team have no more than four players, as substitutions aren’t as practical in online formats. As of now, we have 12 teams signed up:

Ballard
Boyd County
Central Hardin A
Central Hardin B
Dunbar A
Dunbar B
Edmonson County
Glasgow A
Glasgow B
Glasgow C
Mason
Mercy Academy

The tournament will feature pool play in the morning, followed by a rebracketing into playoff pools in the afternoon, and all teams can expect to play 9 or 10 games. Games will be standard untimed NAQT format (two halves of 10 tossups and 3-part bonuses without bounce-backs), powers and negs.

Question set

We will be using the Invitational Series #200A set provided by NAQT. It is a regular high school set.

Fee Structure

$60 for a school’s first team and $50 for each additional team.
Teams who have never played pyramidal quiz bowl automatically qualify for the minimum fee of $50.
