University of Washington Collegiate Novice Mirror - 10/5/13

Post by Mike Bentley »

The Quizbowl Team at the University of Washington will be hosting a mirror of the Collegiate Novice tournament in Seattle, WA on Saturday, October 5th, 2013.

This tournament is designed as an introduction to quiz bowl where novice players can play against teams of similar skill on questions that reward their level of knowledge. It is intended to give new players a positive first experience and get them hooked on playing.

Eligibility:
1. All ACF eligibility rules apply, except when they contradict the rules below.
2. This is a tournament for introducing collegiate novices to quizbowl. Consequently, no high school teams or players are eligible.
3. Anyone (who does not break Rules 1 or 2) who has never played quizbowl before is automatically eligible. Other academic competition does not count as quizbowl for this rule.
4. Players meeting one or more of the following criteria must apply to the head editor for special permission to play:

• i. If you have already completed your second year of college (calculated from time in college, not credits). Time in a post-secondary high school program does not count.
• ii. If you were ever on a playoff or top-bracket team at NAQT HSNCT or PACE NSC.
• iii. If you have ever scored at least 30 points per game at any college tournament.
• iv. If you have ever won any college tournament.
5. Anyone who does not fall into any of the four categories listed in Rule 4 is automatically eligible to play.

Fees:
Base fee: $10 per player. It is encouraged for teams to be composed of no more than 4 to maximize playing opportunities.
Buzzers: -$5 per functioning system with no less than eight working indicators (max 1 per team)
Travel Discount: -$10 for one-way travel in excess of 200 miles (verified via Google Maps)
Minimum fee: $5 per player

If you would like to register for this tournament, please email me at [email protected]. Please let me know the teams, buzzers, and/or staff that you will be bringing. You should also send me a phone number that will allow me to contact you the day of the tournament.
