IHSSBCA Kickoff Champaign, IL (11/23/13)

Post by garciaja »

This year we are pleased to host an IHSSBCA Kickoff Tournament on November 23rd at Champaign Centennial High School. The Illinois High School Scholastic Bowl Coaches' Association runs this tournament across the state using NAQT questions, specifically IS-130. Matches will be 5 v 5 and are not timed, but are 20 TU cycles in length.

If you wish to register your team, an informal email to me, or a response in this thread will suffice, and the $50 entry fee can be mailed to Centennial High School at 913 S. Crescent Champaign, IL 61821 with the check written to Centennial Scholastic Bowl.

We are also looking for some moderators or even a statistician for this tournament and if you are interested in being on staff please reply here or send me an email.

In order to participate in this tournament, you or another coach must register and join the IHSSBCA. The IHSSBCA is taking and will continue to take memberships for this year. See the following link for further details on joining the IHSSBCA: http://www.ihssbca.org/pdf/membership_form.pdf

This tournament will start at 8:30 with an off-campus lunch break around 12 until 1. Teams should expect to play at least 8 rounds on the day and leave no earlier than 3:30. There will be individual awards at the end of lunch (or after prelims if they go past lunch) based on preliminary round performance. Team awards will be given at the conclusion of the playoffs. There is a maximum of 32 teams allowed to register for this tournament although your school may register for up to two teams initially. At this point, we have already reached our hard cap of 32 teams. If your team expresses interest, you will be placed on a waitlist.
