BOAT(New Jersey Area)

Post by negatron »

On April 4 BCA Quizbowl will host BOAT, the Bergen Open Academic Tournament. (Note, this is in New Jersey). You can play without fear that I will epically neg, as I will be one of the people running it. If you are interested in registration please email [email protected]. I will respond with fees and information about steep discounts for buzzers.

Just to post the parts of my earlier post relevant to this thread:
Yes, we have administration approval for hosting a tournament April 4.

The fee structure and question source will be posted at a later date (probably in a week or so). Watson wanted to get this on record before he leaves with the math team for a trip this weekend.

SHP will likely bring one team to this. A number of the kids want to try a trash tournament so I will probably send them to MAST. Let us know!

Man, if this weren't the same weekend as 3 other things I should be doing, I would come down to help out. I'm glad to see you finally got the administration to not be (as) stupid; I remember having a heck of a time trying to get the original non-occurring BOAT to happen three years ago...

I have some interest in bringing students to this.

What are the parameters? Are we limited to 2 teams?
