Piasa Bird Invitational VI @ Southwestern H.S. (Piasa, IL) - 1/15/2022

Post by mhasquin »

Southwestern High School (Piasa, Illinois) will be hosting the Piasa Bird Invitational VI (PBI VI) on January 15, 2022.

Each round will consist of 20 tossup questions with 20 3-part bonuses. The tournament will use 15-point "powers" (reward for an early enough buzz), and "negs", a 5-point penalty for preemptive, incorrect buzzes. Bonuses will not rebound.

We're currently looking for a field of 18 teams. Expansion to 24 is possible if there is interest and staff available.

Fees
  • Fees are $70 for the first team and $60 for each subsequent team.
  • Make checks payable to Southwestern CUSD #9, and you may pay through mail (Southwestern High School, 8226 RT. 111, Piasa, IL 62079) or on-site when you check-in at the tournament.
Question Set
We will be mirroring Scottie 2021.

A concession stand will be available on site for teams. There are no practical options to leave the campus during lunch break.

Please register through this link: PBI VI Registration Form

Rules:
Rounds are 20/20 with one tiebreaker tossup if needed.
We will use powers (15) and negs (-5). Five players are allowed per team.
We will not use bouncebacks, and substitutes are allowed after each game only (rules are subject to change based on future field size).
Timing will be 5 seconds after the question to buzz, 5 seconds to give your answer once you buzz, and 5 seconds to confer and answer on bonuses.

If you have questions, please email Matt Hasquin at [email protected]
