Wildcat X (11/1/08) @ Northwestern University (Evanston, IL)

Post by EverlastingWrane » Wed Sep 03, 2008 8:29 pm

The Northwestern University Quizbowl Team will be hosting the tenth annual NAQT Wildcat Invitational Tournament on Saturday, November 1st, 2008. This will be an official NAQT tournament, with the top 15% of the field qualifying for the HSNCT. It will be held on our campus in Evanston, Illinois, in the Norris University Center, the same building it was held in last year (featuring lovely views of Lake Michigan). Pricing will be as follows:

+$65 Base fee per team
-$10 Discount for each additional team from the same school
-$5 Discount per school for each working buzzer system provided

To register, or if you have any questions, please contact Rebecca Fischer at: rebecca-fischer AT northwestern DOT edu

See you there!

Rebecca--I can probably bring 3 teams if you would like 9 (8 team round robin) teams.

Is there any way a last minute plea can be sent to other schools to come to this? I doubt every school is going to Lincoln-Way East, so I have to believe some teams are planning on sitting at home on Saturday.

Though the lack of revenue is unfortunate for Northwestern, who deserves better, and the lack of exposure to IS is unfortunate for Illinois teams, this will be a fun tournament to play. If it is similar to last week's tournament, with a 7-match round robin followed by a 3-match round robin (top four teams and bottom four teams in separate divisions), or something along those lines, then a good time will be had by all.
