Coaches,

North Gwinnett Middle School is proud to announce the 3rd Annual North by North Gwinnett (NXNG) on Saturday, November 16th, 2019.

QUESTIONS:
The Tournament will use NAQT set MS-32 and the top 15% of the field will qualify for the NAQT Middle School National Championship Tournament in Chicago in May. We will have a regular division and a novice division for teams (or players) in their first year of quiz bowl. All teams are guaranteed at least five preliminary rounds and the top 32 teams in the regular division will compete in a single-elimination playoff. (The number of novice teams advancing to the playoffs will depend on the size of the field)
* Playoff seeds will be sorted by W-L and PPG.

Each school can pick up a copy of the questions after all teams from a school are finished for the day.

FORMAT:
Each round will consist of 20 tossups with 3 part bonus questions. We will use powers and negs. Bouncebacks will not be used on bonuses.

*Each team will play with 5 players at a time with substitutions between rounds and at halftime.

Registration will begin at 8 AM and we hope to start Round 1 at 9:00. Lunch will be served on campus after Round 5. Lunch will be provided for a cost of $5 for pizza lunch or $6 for Chick-fil-A lunch.

FEE STRUCTURE:
The registration fee for the tournament will be $70 per team. There is a $5 discount for bringing a working set of buzzers (limit 2). The registration fee will increase to $80 per team after November 9th unless prior arrangements have been made.
