Arizona Quizbowl Association - November NAQT Qualifier

Post by AZQuizbowl »

Arizona Quizbowl Association is proud to present the second NAQT qualifier of the 2013-2014 season on November 9th. Round one will begin at 9am with registration beginning at 8am. We will be in the Durham Language and Literature building on Arizona State University's Tempe campus. The tournament's projected end time is no later than 5pm. Registration will close Monday November 4th at 10am.

We will be using NAQT's Invitational Series #131A packet.

The tournament will follow Official NAQT Rules. Mixed teams are permitted to participate via AQA's Participation Guidelines, but are ineligible for HSNCT qualifications per NAQT's rules and ineligible for NSC qualification per PACE's rules. Teams will consist of four students and one alternate. Additional alternates per team may be designated for an additional fee. The tournament will feature a minimum of 9 rounds of play, to be determined once the field is set.

The top five teams and top five students will receive trophies, and the student with the most powers will be awarded the coveted Power Plaque. According to NAQT qualifier rules, the top 15 percent of teams will qualify for HSNCT from this tournament, and AQA is actively pursuing PACE NSC certification for all qualifying tournaments this season.

Bunnie Hadsall will be the tournament director.

Entry fees

The fee is $55/team.
There is a $5 discount for each working buzzer system provided for use on tournament day.
There is a $10 discount for each team that travels from out of state.
There is a $3 fee for each alternate in excess of one. The exception to this rule is if alternates are taken from another team.

For questions or to register, email me at [email protected] . Registration forms can be found at https://www.dropbox.com/s/1cazfr2vwpjzf ... 20Form.doc

Went great! Madison High School from San Diego got first, with Desert Vista A in second and a tie for third between Brophy Prep A and Desert Vista B. In the novice division, Desert Vista D beat Queen Creek B 2-0 in a final where QC had the advantage, and BASIS B clinched third by going 2-0 in the tiebreaker.

Stats have been posted in the database.

Now it's time to prepare for the first AZ NHBB of the season!

We have plans of hosting tournaments in Southern and Northern Arizona next season, so we're hoping to take over the whole state soon. :)
