PPT II @ Canyon Crest Academy (9/29/18)

Post by spiral_kuuhaku » Sun Aug 12, 2018 2:00 am

CCA Quizbowl would like to announce the 2018-2019 season opener, Powered Points Tournament II (PPT II)! There will be two divisions, JV and Varsity, using the IS-176A and IS-177 NAQT sets respectively.

LOCATION: Canyon Crest Academy, 5951 Village Center Loop Road, San Diego, CA 92130. The matches will most likely be held in the D and E buildings on the first floor.

DATE: The tournament will be held on Saturday, September 29th, 2018. Check-in will begin at 8:30 am in E101, and the first round should begin around 9 am. Schedules and roster confirmation sheets will be available after check-in.

FORMAT: The tournament will feature one JV division playing the NAQT IS-176A set and a Varsity division playing the NAQT IS-177 set. The tournament will adhere to official NAQT rules—with the exception that each round will run as two untimed, 10-question halves—with a preliminary round robin followed by reseeding based on results from the round robin phase. Seeding in the individual sub-brackets will be determined by the overall win-loss record. Ties for reseedings will be resolved based on points per game, followed by points per bonus.

ELIGIBILITY: To play in the JV division of this tournament, players must not have: greater than 50 PPG on a NAQT IS-A set, greater than 30 PPG on a NAQT IS set, nor greater than 10 PPG at either PACE or HSNCT. Anyone is welcome to play in the Varsity division.

Base fee = $80 for one team, $70 after the first
$40 for any team that has not competed in a decent, mACF-style or NAQT tournament in the past 2 years.

Discounts will be given as follows:
-$5 for each fully-functional buzzer system (must have at least four working buzzers on both sides)
-$5 for traveling distances over 50 miles, one-way, according to Google Maps
-$10 per moderator. Must have a functioning laptop.

Minimum fee: $55 per team.

Please make checks payable to: CCA Quizbowl. Please do not make checks out to any other person or entity. Checks or cash will be due at the start of the tournament during registration.

REGISTRATION: The directors for this tournament are Shreyank Kadadi and Raymond Song. The advisor of this tournament will be Mr. Brian Shay. If you are interested in attending, sign up through this link: https://goo.gl/forms/mWAPfI6RYixiXZGn1

Preliminary field cap: 20, but is subject to change.

Updates of the tournament will be made primarily through the SoCal Quiz Bowl Facebook, by email, and on this forum post.

FOOD: A light breakfast will be provided in E101. The shopping center across Village Center Loop Drive (about a 5-10 minute walk away) has food options such as Panera Bread, Trader Joe's, Fresh Brothers (pizza), and Luna Grill.
