Winter Inv. Tournament (WIT) at Marist School, GA - 1/12/13

Post by wareagle »

Marist School in Atlanta, Georgia is pleased to host its first Winter Invitational Tournament (WIT) on Saturday, January 12th.

FIELD
The tournament will be a true invitational, showcasing the very best teams of Georgia quiz bowl. The field will therefore be limited to no more than 14 teams, with a minimum goal of 10 teams. Teams will be invited, in tiers, and the field will only be expanded periodically, assuring that we have as many of the top teams as possible in attendance, while maintaining our cap on the field.

QUESTIONS
The tournament will be a mirror of the Harvard Fall Tournament question set. Information about the set can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=13393.

FEES
The cost is only $35, with the expectation that teams also contribute a worker to the tournament, with a strong preference for experienced readers.

FORMAT
We will run a single round robin, which will have each team play all other teams in the field, guaranteeing a good number of games against some of the best competition in the state. We will not use bounce back bonuses.

We look forward to a great day of competition!

The field is full and closed.

Here is the text from the info. email sent at the end of last week:

Dear Academic Team Coaches,

I hope you enjoyed a break from school! Now that we are back, I wanted to send you some information about the Winter Invitational Tournament (WIT) at Marist School (3790 Ashford-Dunwoody Rd, Atlanta, GA 30319) on January 12th.

Parking and Check-in: I have attached a campus map that indicates where teams can park (for cars, mini and big buses) and where team check-in will be. Team check-in will be from 8:00-8:15 in the school cafeteria. Please remember to bring your buzzer system and deliver it at team check-in. The reader/scorekeeper meeting will begin at 8:15. We will begin round one no later than 8:30 and will not be able to wait for any late arrivals.

Format: We will be running a full round robin. This means that each team will be playing 13 rounds—one round against each other team present. As there is no elimination, teams need to stay for the duration of the tournament. For your planning, we hope to complete the 13th round by 4:30 or so. There will be 20 toss-ups and 20 3-part bonuses in each round. We will not be using bounce backs on bonuses.

Rules, Timing, and Order of Finish: We will play with FOUR players at a time. Substitutions will be allowed only in-between matches. A player who buzzes in will be recognized, but s/he does not need to wait for recognition before answering. Players will have THREE seconds to begin an answer after being recognized. Teams will have FIVE seconds to buzz in at the completion of a toss-up. Teams will have FIVE seconds per bonus part. Captains may designate on bonuses. The top 25% of the field will qualify for the PACE National Scholastic Championship (NSC), and the top three teams will receive trophies. Final placement will be determined using the following information in this order,
1. Win-Loss record
2. Heads-up Game
3. Points Per Game
4. Points Per Bonus

Field:
Baconton Charter
Cedar Shoals
Centennial
Chamblee
Chattahoochee A
Chattahoochee B
Collins Hill
Eastside
Etowah
“Howell Cobb Institute”
Marist
Norcross
South Forsyth
Westminster

Lunch: Remember, no cash will be accepted the day of the tournament. Remember to bring your check! If you need an invoice for billing purposes, let me know. In your team packet, you will receive a number of tickets that corresponds to the number of lunches you pre-ordered. You will turn these in at lunch to receive your Chick-fil-a sandwich, chips, and drink.

We are looking forward to hosting your team! It will be a great day of competition!

That's correct. We did not use bouncebacks--so those are just the PPB.
