9/19/15 - Unnamed House-Written Tournament at West Point

Post by quizbowllee » Sat Aug 15, 2015 12:46 am

West Point High School in Cullman, AL will be hosting our first-annual house-written tournament on Sept. 19. We will be shooting for a difficulty level somewhere between NAQT A-series and Regular IS-sets. We will also still be hosting a tournament on NAQT questions in December.

Registration for this event will be $60 per team with a $5 discount per buzzer system per team.

The questions will be power-marked and we will use powers and negs.

Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in attending. E-mail me thenry@ccboe.org.

Also, this set will be available for mirrors after Sept. 19. Please contact me if you are interested in mirroring our tournament for details.

Thanks.

Sure. $55 for each additional team.

We will also likely have JV division if there are enough interested JV teams. At the very least, we will give a trophy to the top JV team(s).

If this tournament isn't renamed "Lee Henry's House Party", I'm not sure I can come.

James Clemens plans to bring one team and one buzzer system. Can the registration fees be paid onsite on the tournament date?

Due to conflicts, Good Hope will only be able to bring one team, not two.

Fair enough.

SMART I: Lee Henry's House Party.


As for format, it will be NAQT-style tossups and bonuses, complete with powers and negs.

I will decide whether to do pools, power-matching, etc. when I get a definite number of teams.

I sent all this information to the coaches.

Try to arrive between 8:00 and 8:15. I hope to be playing by 8:30.

I hate trying to estimate when a tournament will end, but we're usually done by 4:00.

Can we expect full stats by Monday?

Good Hope greatly enjoyed the set and tournament as a whole, and would like to thank you guys. We thought the set was very well written.

EDIT: forgot about mirrors

Full stats definitely will NOT be done by Monday. Truthfully, it may be a while.

I'm working on stats now. Unfortunately, it looks like a few score sheets have gone missing... So the stats will not be 100% complete.
