Post by double_faulton » Mon Sep 17, 2018 4:42 pm

Johns Hopkins University is pleased to announce the Johns Hopkins Fall Quizbowl Tournament, which will take place on October 13th, 2018.

Location:
The tournament will take place at Johns Hopkins University, located at 3400 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218. Room locations will be in Gilman Hall. A map of campus can be found here: http://cis.jhu.edu/images/campus_map_0907.pdf. Parking is available at the South Garage, at a flat rate of $9 for the day.

Entry Fees and Discounts:
Base Fee: $70 per team
Buzzers: -$5 per each working buzzer system
Staffing: -$10 per competent staffer (limit one per team)

Payment must be made on the day of the tournament either by cash or check only. Please make checks out to "Johns Hopkins University."

Format:
This tournament will follow official NAQT rules (which can be viewed at http://www.naqt.com/rules.html) with slight modifications on timing.

Question Set:
We will be using NAQT IS-177X, which is a set intended for normal high school level players.

Food:
Pizza will be sold near lunch time, and various restaurants may be found in the vicinity of campus. To see a full list, please visit http://web.jhu.edu/cogsci/visitors/restaurants.html.

Team and Roster Size:
There is a maximum of 6 players on a team; up to four members may play at once. We recommend no more than four members on a team, so that students may play the maximum number of rounds.

Team Limit:
Until one week prior to the registration deadline (September 29), only three teams from a school may register. Subsequent teams (up to an additional two, for five total) from the same school will be placed on the wait list. Following September 29, two additional teams from that school on the wait list will be moved off of the wait list and registered (assuming that there are spots still open).

Registration:
To register, please fill out the following form (https://goo.gl/forms/9NEDTkuOhCpfjHgr1) by October 6. The field will initially be capped at 18 teams.

Timeline:
Here are some important dates:
September 29, 2018: Multiple team deadline (see above)
October 6, 2018: Registration deadline
October 11, 2018: Roster deadline
October 13, 2018: Tournament day

Can we get some clarification on the set? IS-177 is a regular difficulty set, not a introductory level set like advertised. Is this a mistake or is this tournament truly using an introductory level set?

This tournament is using a regular Invitational Series set, with this distribution. (The distribution on this page is for the 12-packet version, though this tournament will be using the 13-packet version.)

So there were two A teams?

Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm just looking through the forum, don't know anything about the actual tourney.

Was there HSNCT qualification associated with this event? If so, how many teams qualified?

Yes, this event was a qualifier for NAQT's 2019 national championships. If the listed number in the stats of 15 teams is correct, the top three will have qualified for the 2019 HSNCT in Atlanta.
