University of Charleston will host the 4th Annual UC High School Quiz Bowl Kick-Off on September 24, 2016 on the UC campus in Charleston, WV.
Questions will be purchased from NAQT. We will be using set IS-159A.
Format: 20 TOSS-UPS WITH BONUS, POWERS, NO NEGS.
All teams will play morning and afternoon rounds. At least 9 rounds guaranteed – we will play 4 rounds in the morning, regroup based on morning standings, and play 5 rounds in the afternoon, and a final round if necessary to declare a winner. Teams are allowed to have up to 5 players and alternates. If you volunteer to bring buzzers, please make sure they are 10 player sets, all parts are included, and buzzers are working!
CASH PRIZES: If we have at least 20 teams in attendance, there will be small cash prizes for the top teams. The number and amount of prizes will depend on the number of teams. We also have book prizes this year for top scorers in the morning.
Registration will be from 8:00-9:00.
Readers meeting starts and 8:45.
Informational meeting from 9:00-9:25 (along with readers meeting).
Rounds will begin at 9:30 and usually finish around 5, although we have cut one morning round to try to finish a little earlier this year (last year we did 10 rounds and this year we are doing 9).
Buffet lunch will be available in the campus cafeteria for $5.
Cost & Registration
The cost of registration is $50 per team. Teams may get a $5 discount for bringing 1 volunteer, and may get $5 off for a set of buzzers per team.
Registration will close on Monday, September 19th at NOON or when we reach 30 teams.
Please email Michelle Herdman to register your teams or with any questions.
