NAQT South Florida State Championship -- 02/23/13

Post by bjorkchop » Tue Jan 15, 2013 5:21 pm

We are happy to announce that the NAQT South Florida State Championship will be held on Saturday, Feb 23:
Chaminade-Madonna College Preparatory School
500 East Chaminade Drive
Hollywood, FL 33021
http://goo.gl/maps/lQ9v6

Cost & Registration
- $70 base for the first team, $60 for each additional team
- Discounts: -$10 for each working buzzer system, -$10 per volunteer (veteran reader or scorekeeper)
- Maximum of 6 players per team (4 players and 2 subs)
- To register, e-mail sfrappier@ransomeverglades.org by 5pm on Tuesday, Feb 19
- Payment is preferably handled at registration, with checks made out to "Chaminade-Madonna College Preparatory"
- Although this is "States," we definitely welcome teams that have not previously played in the NAQT format.


Format
- Questions will be from NAQT-IS126, such as the questions here: http://www.naqt.com/samples/t1973packet_01.pdf
- Registration will be from 8:00-8:45am, with prelims finished by 3:30 and finals finished by 5pm.
- The draw will be mixed, with no "varsity" or "JV" distinction.
- Counter my original post, we will not attempt timed rounds given the volume of newcomer moderator/scorekeepers. That would be bound to be messier than taking our time, with the normal 20TU/20Bonus structure.
- The top 15% of the field will qualify for the HSNCT in Atlanta, May 24-26, which is looking like 4 teams.

Food
Chaminade will have food for sale, for breakfast and for lunch.

Field (as of 02-22-13, 9pm)
American Heritage School, Plantation (2)
Chaminade (7)
Pembroke Pines Charter (1)
Ransom (6)
School for Advanced Studies - Kendall (2)
Stoneman Douglas (2)
Westminster Christian (1)
Field: 21 teams

Teams will play in three brackets of seven teams, with prelims consisting of a six-game round-robin. All teams will have one bye.

See you at South Florida States!


Your co-directors,
- Barry Briganti, Chaminade-Madonna, bbriganti@cmlions.org
