Logistics
Check-in will begin at 8:00 A.M., and the opening meeting will start at 8:40, with matches beginning at 9:00. Upon your arrival, your team will need to submit any buzzers for discounts, and then we will collect money for entry fees and lunch ($8 per sandwich from Jimmy John’s, drinks included). Lunch will take place between noon and 12:45, immediately following round 6 or 7, depending on when the food arrives. An email containing all information regarding logistics (location on campus, parking, payment, etc.) will be sent to participating teams a few days prior to the tournament.

Format
This tournament will be run using the Washington High Academic Question fest II (WHAQ II) set, a high school set. The day will begin with a round robin, followed by a single-elimination playoff for the top teams. We should be able to guarantee at least 8 games for each team. The tournament will be capped at 30 teams, and schools are welcome to bring multiple teams.

Entry Fees
$95 base fee for first teams
-$10 per functional buzzer system (applied to first team, must be functional buzzers)

To register for this tournament, please email romeroc@gmail.com with the number of teams you will be bringing as well as any moderators or buzzers you’ll have.
