KPAQT III
Kings Park Annual Quizbowl Tournament III

Kings Park will be hosting our third annual Quizbowl tournament on March 23rd, 2013 at Kings Park High School in Kings Park, Long Island, New York. Kings Park is located centrally on Long Island’s north shore, and is a convenient travel for any Long Island school.

TOURNAMENT INFO:
**Date: Saturday March 23, 2013

**Location: Kings Park High School (200 East Main Street, Kings Park, NY 11754)

**Time: Registration opens at 7:00am, first round starts promptly at 9:00am. Breakfast will be served in the cafeteria between these times.

**Cost:
First Team: $75
Additional Teams: $60
Copy of Questions Packet (IS125A): $15

**Discounts:
Experienced Moderator: -$10
Functional Buzzer System: -$10

**Rounds: Based on attendance, teams will be bracketed evenly. Ideally, five guaranteed preliminary rounds will be played through a round-robin with each team in one's bracket. This will be designed to maximize the number of guarantee rounds. At the end of the preliminary rounds, teams will be re-bracketed based on Win-Loss record and then by points per game to break any ties. Teams should also break for lunch around this time.

**Games: We will be using NAQT IS125A, according to NAQT rules, untimed.

**Playoff Format: The Top 16 teams will most likely be bracketed into two brackets for a Single-Elimination Final. Although, it is also likely that a two bracket round-robin, ending in single elimination final rounds will be used, depending on the number of teams present.
For teams that wish to stay but did not make the finals, we WILL be organizing a Consolation Bracket. This will be a round-robin style bracket however stats will not be recorded for consolation rounds.

**Statistics: Will be compiled in SQBS. Team stats will be projected in the stats room at the end of each Round. Individual stats will be posted in the hallways in between rounds.

**Update: Teams that finish in the top 15% will qualify for PACE National Scholastics Championship in College Park, Maryland

Question/Interest: For additional information please email Rob Celeste (Coach / TD) at [email protected] or to express interest in the tournament, please respond to this thread or PM me.

Additional Information will come as the tournament approaches!

@High Tech, We look good on buzzers so I will put you down for one for now. I'll let you know if we could use more as the tournament approaches.

Note: Please submit Registration Forms to [email protected] if you have not done so already; your team will not be officially registered until the form is sent.
