WKU Big Red Invitational (CANCELLED)

EDIT: Please note that this tournament has been cancelled (see below post). We still plan to host next fall as usual.

The WKU Academic Competition Club will be hosting our first-annual WKU Big Red Invitational on April 2, 2016. This tournament will be co-directed by Olivia Gearner and Jacob Menix, with assistance from myself.

Location: Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, KY (building TBD)

Questions: We will be mirroring BASQT, a set produced by the Bergen County Academies quizbowl Team. Details about BASQT can be found here.

Fee: $70 per team
$15 moderator discount
$10 new to quizbowl discount (Kentucky teams only)
$10 out-of-state discount (non-Kentucky teams only)
Minimum fee: $40

We ask that every school in attendance bring a working buzzer system.

Payment: It's much easier for all parties if you pay on the day of the tournament, rather than mailing payment ahead of time. We can work with you to provide invoices, tax forms, etc., depending on administrative policy at your school, and we hope to make things as easy on everyone as possible!

Format: Rounds will consist of 20 tossups and 20 bonuses (non-bounceback). Powers and negs will both be used. Other details will be determined closer to the date of the tournament once we have a better idea of the field size, but it will likely be very similar to our other tournaments.

For now, I'm going to cap the field at 20 teams, but expect that to potentially rise if necessary as long as we can find enough staffers.

To register, or if you have any questions, send us an email at [email protected].
