Cookeville Fall Tournament @ Cookeville HS, Cookeville, TN, 12/4/21 (IS-205A)

Post by smatson »

Cookeville High School (Cookeville, TN) will be hosting the Cookeville Fall Tournament on Saturday, December 4th, 2021. Cookeville High School is located at 2335 N. Washington Ave., Cookeville, TN, 38501.

We will be using NAQT IS-205A. Register here.

Tentatively, we'll be capping the field at 18 teams. We may grow the field size if there's interest, help, and available rooms.

Payment
$70/team
-$10 per buzzer system per team
-$5 per staffer
$55 minimum cost per team

Payment can be made on-site. Please make checks out to CHS Academic Team.

Format
We will play rounds of consisting of 20 tossups and 20 bonuses with powers (15) and no negs. No bouncebacks on bonuses.

Sign-in will begin at 8:00 AM (CST), the introductory meeting will begin at 8:45, and the first round will begin at 9:00. The tournament should end by 5:00.

The tournament will consist of bracketed round-robin preliminary rounds, a 1.5-hour lunch, and re-bracketed playoff and consolation rounds, and cross-over and finals matches as necessary. The specifics will depend on the number of competing teams. If we reach our field cap, each team will play 10 matches.

The top three teams will receive trophies, and the top 10 scorers after the preliminary rounds will receive book prizes.

Food
We will not be serving lunch on site. There are a handful of restaurants within a short drive of the school, and we will allow ample time for teams to leave campus for lunch. Restaurants and approximate driving distances will be communicated via email closer to the event. We will not be serving breakfast. We most likely will not have a hospitality room for coaches and staff.

COVID-19
We respectfully request that everyone in attendance wear facial coverings. We will sanitize rooms between rounds. If our COVID numbers are such that it seems irresponsible to have an in-person tournament, the tournament will be cancelled. We will not have an online event.
