Piasa Bird Invite III (PBI III) @ Southwestern 1/13/18

Post by Piasa Coach » Wed Sep 06, 2017 4:49 pm

Southwestern High School (Piasa, Illinois) will be hosting the Piasa Bird Invitational III (PBI III) on January 13, 2018. The PBI III will be run on the DEFT (Darien's Excellent Fall Tournament) set.

Each round will consist of 20 tossup questions with 20 3-part bonuses. The tournament will use 15-point "powers" (reward for an early enough buzz), and there is no penalty for incorrect answers. Bonuses will not rebound.

For a 24 team field we will use four preliminary pools rebracket into two parallel playoff pools and four consolation pools (8 rounds). After Round 8, the top team from Championship Pool A will face off against the top team from Championship Pool B in a one ­game final, and the second ­place teams from the same pools will play a game for third place. Ties in the Championship Pools will be played off prior to the championship game.


Fees
Fees are $50 for the first team and $45 for each subsequent team.

There will be an initial cap of 24 teams for this tournament. If there is interest and available staff, we will consider expanding the field.

A concession stand will be available on site for teams. There are no viable options to leave the campus during lunch break.

Please be advised, due to a conflict in question sets, the PBI III will run with the DEFT (Darien's Excellent Fall Tournament) set rather than NAQT 171A.

If weather continues to be a concern, we will have a go/no go for launch on Friday evening.
