California Fall (Online) Novice Tournament (Oct 30)

Post by njsbling »

The 2021 California Fall Novice Tournament, sponsored by the Northern California and Southern California Quiz Bowl Alliances, will be held on Saturday, October 30 online via Discord. This tournament is aimed at completely new schools, as well as new players from established programs, in the state of California. As such, we are using these eligibility criteria:

1) Only students attending high schools physically located in California, or online high schools based in California, are eligible
2) Any such student who has never played all-subject quiz bowl before is eligible (for the purposes of this eligibility standard, “quiz bowl” does not include other academic competitions, such as Academic League, Academic Decathlon, National Science Bowl, History Bowl, or local televised competitions)
3) Any such student who has never scored more than 25 points per game at a quiz bowl tournament (including middle school competitions) AND who has played less than two years of quiz bowl is eligible

We may make case-by-case exceptions to these eligibility rules; email us at [email protected] for questions about certain players’ eligibility or to petition for an exception. We strongly encourage existing programs to recruit new players and encourage members who may not have played as much to attend this tournament. Middle school teams cannot play- sorry! The field cap is 40 teams.

Fees:
Base fee= $60 per team
New school discount= $30 per team [defined as not having played a pyramidal tournament in 2020-21]
Staff discount= $30 per staffer for full day ($15 for half day)
Cancellation fee= $20 per team that cancels after 6PM (Pacific time) on Friday, October 29

We plan to use the SCOP novice set for this event. Tuesday, October 26 is the last day to register
