This tournament will feature the twenty tossup/bonus format using the BASQT II set by Bergen Academies. Games consist of twenty tossups worth ten points each followed by non-rebounding bonuses worth up to thirty points. Tossups will feature "powers" (additional points awarded for correct buzzes very early in the question) and "negs" (five point deductions for incorrect answers before the question is finished).
We anticipate using two full round robins in the morning and afternoon with an advantaged final to decide the champion depending on the number of teams registered.
base fee (first team from each school): $70
second or subsequent teams: $65
travel discount (100 miles or more one way): -$5 per team
buzzer discount (must work for eight players; limit two per school): -$5

We played 9 rounds today and at the end of round 9 we had a 3 way tie for 1st place with only 30 points separating all three teams (Washington B, Helias A and Southwestern). Helias A defeated Southwestern in a play-in game for the right to play Washington B in the championship match. In the final match, Helias A defeated Washington B in a very close match to become the champion of our fifth annual tournament. Congratulations to all teams involved in today's tournament for their excellent play and sportsmanship. We look forward to seeing you at next year's tournament (February 3rd, 2018).
