CATT VIII - 12/8/2012 @ Chattahoochee (Johns Creek, GA)

Post by Rountree » Fri Aug 17, 2012 1:53 pm

Chattahoochee High School is pleased to announce the 8th Annual CATT (Chattahoochee Academic Team Tournament).

The questions will be house-written by former and current members of the CHS Academic Team (with some additional help from players at Torrey Pines).

As usual, the tournament will be held on the 2nd Saturday in December (12/8/2012) at Chattahoochee's campus in Johns Creek, GA (in the NE suburbs of Atlanta).

Depending on the final field size, each team will play 5-7 preliminary rounds of divisional pool play. Then, also depending on the field size and the number of moderators we have available, there will be either a large (32-team+) single-elimination playoff, or a re-bracketed round robin playoff to determine final placements. (Typically, we draw 60+ teams to our tournament.)

Trophies will go to the top 8 teams.

The cost will be $60 for one team (+ $55 for the 2nd team, + $50 for the 3rd or 4th team = $165 for 3 teams, $215 for 4 teams) You may enter up to 4 teams total.

If you are interested in attending or have any questions, please email me at rountreeE@fultonschools.org.

We have arranged for some former high school players to help edit the set: David Benas, Adam Silverman, and Kunal Naik. Hopefully, their combined knowledge and experience will make this the best CATT ever.

EDITED to reflect new editing team.

Here is a slightly abbreviated form of the email I sent to coaches today.

CHECK-IN:
Please be at Chattahoochee High School between 8:00am and 8:40am. Enter into the Main Lobby (under the covered entrance at the front of the school) to receive your Team Packet. We plan on beginning the preliminary rounds at 8:50am.

DIRECTIONS & PARKING:
Chattahoochee High School is located at 5230 Taylor Road, Johns Creek, 30022. Once you turn onto Taylor Road, about half a mile down on your left you will see a large stone and metal marquee with “Taylor Road Middle School” and “Chattahoochee High School” on it. Turn left there, and you can park in the large lot immediately on your right. Additional parking is past the front entrance of the school on the far right of the building.

TOURNAMENT & GAME FORMAT:
Every team will play 5 preliminary games. Following lunch, ALL teams will move into a single-elimination tournament bracket until we reach the final 4 teams. At that point, the final 4 teams will play a round robin to determine the Champion. Trophies will go to the top 8 teams. During the matches, 4 players can play at a time. Rounds are 20 tossups with 20 bonuses worth up to 30 points each. We will use bounce-backs on the bonuses. There will be 15-point powers but NO negs. We are using the 5-second rule: teams will have 5 seconds to buzz in once a question is finished before it goes “dead”; players will have 5 seconds to give their answer once they have buzzed in; teams will have 5 seconds per bonus part to confer and deliver their answer. Captains may designate on all bonus parts.

FIELD: Please let me know if I have made a mistake anywhere below. If you have not yet paid, you can mail your check or bring it with you on Saturday.

Dorman A is good, but somehow I doubt that they're capable of putting up over 30 points per bonus. That game against Alpharetta A might not have stats entered correctly. Dorman B also apparently heard 26 bonuses against Woodford D.

We used bouncebacks.

I think the problem is that Dorman A put up over 600 points per bonus one round.

Looks like the number of tossups answered was switched for the Dorman-Alpharetta game. (It showed Dorman going 0/1/0 and Alpharetta going 3/13/0 or something like that.)

You still have Westminster A losing to Kell 80-210. This loss should be attributed to Westminster B.
