FORMAT: The tournament will be using NAQT IS-100. The tournament will adhere to Official NAQT Rules. Each round will be run as untimed, 10-question halves, with a preliminary round robin followed by reseeding based on results from the round robin phase. Seedings in the individual sub-brackets will be determined by the overall win-loss record.

Ties for reseedings will be resolved based on points per bonus, followed by points per game.

ELIGIBILITY: All high school students are welcome to attend.

PRICING STRUCTURE:
Base fee = $80
-$5 for a fully-functional buzzer system (Must have at least four working buzzers on both sides) There is no limit to the number of buzzers systems a school would like to bring
-$10 for each team after the first
-$5 for each team traveling distances over 90 miles, according to Google Maps
-$10 for each team that has not competed in an NAQT tournament in the past 2 years.
-$10 moderator discount (this is going to be tentative, depending on the field)

Minimum fee = $60/team

Please make checks payable to: Arcadia High School Quiz Bowl. Please do not make a check out to any other person or entity. Checks, or cash will be due at the start of the tournament during registration. Should your team not be able to provide the payment at this time, and would like to send their registration fee in advance or later, please contact the Tournament Director at mrtaco.x at gmail.com to make the proper arrangements.


PRIZES: Prizes will be offered to the top teams, as well as to the top individual scorers.

REGISTRATION: The tournament director is Jeff Xiao. The advisor of this tournament will be Mr. Christopher Schultz. If you are interested in attending or have any questions, please e-mail Jeff Xiao at mrtaco.x at gmail.com with the following information:

1) Your school's name
2) Coach (or representative) name and e-mail address
3) The number of teams you are bringing
4) The number of buzzer systems

All teams whose registrations are received after 12:01 a.m. on January 12th, 2010 will be charged a $20 late fee.

There is a tentative field cap of 16 teams. The field will be expanded if there is enough interest and if we get enough staffers.

Updates about the tournament will primarily be through the Southern California High School Quiz Bowl listserv; in addition, they should also be posted online on the tournament announcement section on hsquizbowl.org.

FIELD UPDATE:

La Jolla: 4
Rancho Bernardo: Based on Lucas's information, 1-2. Based on David's information, 2-3.
University expresses interest.

Our current team cap is 16, but with outside moderators we could easily have more.
Looking for more attendance, hopefully 14 teams.

Field update:

Rancho Bernardo - 2
La Jolla - 4

As you can see we only have 6 teams right now. The bare minimum for the tournament to go ahead is 8 teams; our optimistic goal is 14. Final field update will be posted on Thursday or Friday.

We can probably split teams to get a third and might be able to recruit to a fourth... I'll let you know how that turns out.

RB can definitely split into the third team if necessary to bring the total to 8; thus, at the moment, I'd list the field as
RB - 3
La Jolla - 4
Diamond Bar - 1

Rancho Bernardo 2011
Caltech 2015

It's looking as though, if RB splits to three teams, two will be two-man teams. ACF grants discounts for teams lacking two or more players; will similar discounts apply here as well?

Field Update:

Rancho Bernardo - 3
North Hollywood - 3
La Jolla - 4
Diamond Bar - 1
Edison - 1

University's "interest" remains expressed and unconfirmed.

@Lucas, the ACF discounts won't apply here, but if you'd shoot me another email detailing what the team composition is going to be like and anything else you have on your mind, we'll be able to work something out.

UPDATED 12PM Thursday 1/13/11
RB - 2
NorHo - 2
La Jolla - 4
Edison - 1
Diamond Bar -2
Total - 11

Actually, since the tournament's existence is no longer dependent on RB sending three teams instead of two, we're going back down to two properly-manned teams, so, nevermind.

Possibly Last Field update:

Rancho Bernardo - 2
La Jolla - 4
Diamond Bar - 2
Edison - 1
North Hollywood - 2

This is possibly the last field update, unless we work something out with University, which has been entirely unresponsive to our queries since "expressing interest" exactly a month ago.

Yeah sorry about failing to respond till now, polling interest at the Uni club is a horribly slow/ineffective process.

So who ended up winning? Looks like a 3-way circle of death.

Also, for any quizbowl rankers who come along, it looks like once again RB and La Jolla split up their best players amongst their A and B teams.
