QuBIT II @ High Tech in Lincroft, NJ 3/5/16 [Maryland Fall]

Post by kitkat » Tue Sep 22, 2015 8:44 pm

High Technology High School is pleased to announce the second annual Quiz Bowl Invitational Tournament (QuBIT II), which will take place on Saturday, March 5th, 2016. This is also the date of Bergen's Spring Tournament, which may be closer for teams in Northern NJ/NY.

The tournament will take place at High Technology High School, 765 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft, NJ 07738. There will be ample parking both on our parking lot and that of the adjacent Brookdale Community College, both of which are free of charge.

On the day of the tournament, registration will take place from 7:45 AM to 8:30 AM, and the first round will start at 8:45 AM. Provided we meet our field cap, there will be four prelim brackets of six teams, followed by three playoff brackets of eight teams and six playoff games (no team will play the same team twice.) Trophies will be awarded to the top 4 teams and book prizes will be awarded to the top 5 scorers of the prelims.

Registration:

Registration for this tournament will only be accepted through this Google form, which we will keep open until March 2nd. Due to a limited number of game rooms, we will impose a hard field cap of 24 teams.

Also note that our school district requests a Certificate of Insurance from each participating school before the day of competition. The no-cost Certificate of Insurance is requested through your School Business Office, asking your Insurance Company to issue a Certificate showing the students are covered by insurance when participating at QuBIT. Further details regarding this matter will be sent when you register for the tournament.

Question Set:

We will be mirroring the Maryland Fall set, which will follow this distribution:

4/4 Literature (at least 1/1 each American, British, European, .5/.5 one more of the above, .5/.5 World)
4/4 Science (1/1 biology, 1/1 chemistry, 1/1 physics, 1/1 other science, with a heavy focus on math)
4/4 History (1/1 American, 2/2 European/British/Ancient, 1/1 World, Canadian/Australian where appropriate in context)
2.5/2.5 Religion, Myth, Philosophy (1/1 each Religion and Myth, .5/.5 Philosophy)
2.5/2.5 Fine Arts (1/1 Visual and 1/1 Auditory guaranteed per packet, .5/.5 one more of the above)
.5/.5 Social Science
.5/.5 Miscellaneous and Mixed*
1/1 Geography/Current Events (approx. .66/.66 Geo, .34/.34 CE)
1/1 Trash/Pop Culture

Fee Structure:

$80 for the first team, $75 for each additional team
-$5 for each working buzzer system, no limit
-$10 for each moderator, no limit
-Minimum fee of $50 per team

Method of Payment:

Please make all checks out to “High Tech Student Activities Account”. We prefer payment on the day of the tournament, but if this is against your school's policy then feel free to mail them to High Tech’s address, as listed above. Please note: If you plan on paying by mailing a check to us, make sure to mark Attention: Dr. R Eng on the envelope so the check gets to the right place. Cash is also accepted the day of the tournament.

Food:

A breakfast of bagels and juice will be provided to all teams free of charge. As for lunch, we would prefer if teams stayed on-site in order to prevent delays, but a list of local eateries will be provided as well. We will be offering pizza for sale at lunch for $13 a pie. If you would like to order, please indicate the number of pies on the Google form. Beverages will also be sold at lunch.

We are now platinum certified by PACE! Teams that finish in the top 25% will qualify for PACE NSC on June 4-5th.

If you have any questions about this tournament, please contact us at hthsquizbowlteam@gmail.com or post below.

We look forward to seeing you in March!
