ACE VIII @ Arcadia HS (11/1/14)

Post by Santa Claus »

Arcadia Quiz Bowl is pleased to announce:

Arcadia Carnal Embrace VIII (ACE VIII)

LOCATION: Arcadia High School, 180 Campus Dr., Arcadia CA 91007.

Image

The location of the tournament will be in the C hall of the school, with statkeeping and administration centered in B101. Parking may be limited due to other school events coinciding with the tournament, but can be found in the two main parking lots on the west side and along the surrounding streets.

Image

DATE: The tournament will be held on Saturday, November 1st. Check-in begins at 8:00 am, and first round should begin around 9 am. Schedules will be distributed at check-in.

FORMAT: The tournament will be using the HERMES housewrite by Richard Montgomery. The tournament will adhere to Official NAQT Rules - with the exception that each round will be run as two untimed, 10-question halves - with a preliminary round robin followed by reseeding based on results from the round robin phase. Seedings in the individual sub-brackets will be determined by the overall win-loss record. Ties for reseedings will be resolved based on points per bonus, followed by points per game.

This will not be a HSNCT qualifying tournament.

ELIGIBILITY: All high school students are welcome to attend.

PRICING STRUCTURE:
Base fee = $80 for one team, $70 per team after the first

Discounts will be given as follows:
-$5 for each fully-functional buzzer system (must have at least four working buzzers on both sides)
-$10 for traveling distances over 100 miles, according to Google Maps
-$10 moderator discount (this is going to be tentative, depending on the field)
-$20 per team for schools that have not competed in a decent, mACF-style or NAQT tournament in the past 2 years.
Minimum fee = $60/team

Please make checks payable to: Arcadia High School Quiz Bowl. Please do not make a check out to any other person or entity. Checks, or cash will be due at the start of the tournament during registration. Should your team not be able to provide the payment at this time, and would like to send their registration fee in advance or later, please contact the Tournament Director at [email protected] to make the proper arrangements.

PRIZES: Prizes will be offered to the top teams, as well as to the top individual scorers.

REGISTRATION: The tournament director is Kevin Wang. The advisor of this tournament will be Mr. Christopher Schultz. If you are interested in attending or have any questions, send an email to [email protected] OR reply to this thread with the following information:

1) Your school's name
2) The number of teams you are bringing
3) The number of buzzer systems you will bring
4) Any moderators you have to offer
5) Price you are expecting to pay, after subtracting relevant discounts.

Our field cap is more or less 28 teams; however, this number is subject to change as we receive more information on our available resources.

Updates about the tournament will primarily be through the Southern California High School Quiz Bowl Facebook Group.

PLACES TO EAT:
A light breakfast will be provided in the main room for teams.

There are several fast food restaurants located to the east of the high school, on Duarte Road. It's a 5 minute walk to Duarte-Santa Anita intersection, and a 10 minute walk to the Duarte-2nd Ave intersection.

Image

In addition, for teams with cars (or with members who don't mind a longer walk- just try not to take too long), the Santa Anita Mall is located about 30 minutes (walking distance) away to the northeast, along Campus Drive. There is an In-N-Out about 30 minutes (walking distance) to the north, along Santa Anita Ave.

Thank you very much.

According to our current regional schedule, put together from mostly Eddie bugging people about their scheduling plans next year, UCLA also plans to use an IS-set for their revival of TWAIN, also slated for a November date. I'd advise either of you to look into changing your tournament into a mirror of some other tournament, as it doesn't seem very wise to have two NAQT qualifier events in Los Angeles within a couple weeks of each other.
