Sacramento Fall Middle School Tournament (Sep 29)

Post by njsbling »

The Northern California Quiz Bowl Alliance and Churchill MS are pleased to announce that Churchill will host the Sacramento Fall MS tournament on Saturday, September 29, 2018. This competition features separate JV and Varsity divisions.

Location: This tournament will take place at Churchill MS, Carmichael, California. Registration will begin at 9:00AM and we plan to start round 1 at 9:30AM.

Questions: We will be using NAQT Middle School Series #27. (For practice material similar to the questions we will use at the tournament, please consider the NAQT New Middle School Package).

The top 15% of teams will qualify for the 2019 NAQT Middle School National Championship Tournament, to be held in Chicago in May, 2019.

Eligibility: All middle schools (public, private, charter, religious, homeschool, etc.) are eligible to play in this event. This tournament is open to any players who have not yet completed 8th grade, though the questions are targeted at 7th and 8th graders.

Schools are encouraged to enter multiple teams, but please note that players must play for the same team throughout the tournament.

Pizza, snacks, and drinks will be for sale at this tournament.

Fees:

Base fee: $60 per team

-$30 for schools that played zero quiz bowl tournaments during the 2017-2018 school year (per team)

-$10 per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)

-$20 per staffer (We will hold a brief training session during check-in for those volunteers who have never kept score before.)

Schools from Nevada will play this tournament for free.

Minimum entry fee: $0

Payment (cash or check) will be taken at check-in on September 29. Please write any checks out to Churchill IB-PTO.
