North Greenville University (Tigerville, SC) will hold the eighth annual Crusader Cup tournament on October 13, 2012. This tournament is open to teams officially affiliated with a high school. Teams from middle schools or junior highs are also welcome. Teams from home school cooperatives or without official school sanction will be considered on a case by case basis.

As this is a Fall tournament, we will be using NAQT set 119-A, an introductory invitational set. Teams which will hear these questions (GATA, Rufus King) should not attend. The questions will be pyramidal is structure, and the bounceback rule will apply.

We will currently cap the tournament at 28 teams, opening the field as we gain additional readers. If the number of junior varsity teams is sufficient to have its own division, we will create a division and an award will be given to the best junior varsity team. The maximum number of teams (allowing for sufficient readers) we can accommodate is thirty-six.

Eligibility: Teams will consist of up to four players at a time, with no more than two alternates. Substitutions may be made only between rounds, not during matches. Additionally, once the tournament begins, rosters will be set. Eligible varsity players must be 9th – 12th graders currently enrolled in the school/cooperative for whom they compete. Junior varsity players must be 6th-10th graders currently enrolled in the school/cooperative for which they compete. Any team with an 11th or 12th grade player will be considered varsity regardless of the other players on the team.

Format: The tournament will be an untimed competition consisting of rounds of 20 toss-up and 20 bonus questions with bounce back bonuses. We expect to run the tournament as a modified round robin. Teams will be divided into brackets and will play games within that bracket (with potentially cross-bracket games) for the first five rounds. After lunch, teams will be ranked according to win-loss record (PPG and head-to-head used if necessary) and will play comparable teams from other brackets. The top team from each bracket will be paired to play in semi-finals. Winners will play in the finals. One third place trophy will be awarded to the winner of the other semi-finalist game. An award will be given to the individual high scorer.

Time: We will begin with registration at 8:30am in Hamlin Recital Hall, with opening comments at 9:00am and play at 9:15. We expect to finish by 3:00pm. Most likely, the tournament will run seven rounds. We will break for lunch around 12:30pm.

Cost: The base fee for the tournament is $60 per team (4 starting players and 2 alternates) with a $10 discount for each additional team. A $5 discount is available for each working lockout buzzer (up to two buzzers) and $10 discount for an experienced full-time reader (If you have a coach or a graduate who would be an able reader for the tournament, please consider having that person volunteer). Minimum fee per team is $35. While teams may elect to pay ahead of time, final registration and payment will be done at check-in. Question sets will not be provided but may be purchased after the tournament ($10). Lunch vouchers may be purchased ($5 per person) at check-in, or teams may choose to pay at the door.

Additional Notes: We request that you e-mail your intention to attend (with the number of teams, buzzers, and volunteers). Those interested in attending may contact James Washick ([email protected] or [email protected]).

The tournament has reached its expected capacity (28 teams), but I am expecting one or two more readers to get back to me. Any teams interested in attending can contact James Washick ([email protected] or [email protected]). I am hoping to bump up the number next week.

We had two teams drop, two teams add, and some additional reader volunteers, so we have room for two more varsity teams or two jv teams (ideally not one of each). I will need to close the field on Oct 6, so if you are interested in coming, let me know ASAP. Otherwise, we will go with our field of 30.
