We are hosting our fifth annual ESA Cade Cane Classic Tournament. We sincerely hope you will plan to enter the quiz bowl team(s) from your school.
All Louisiana schools should have received an online invitation to the tournament through NAQT accounts. If your school did not see one, please notify Ashley Dugas immediately. You may also go to www.laquizbowl.org and find a link to the tournament under the Schedule tab.
When: Saturday, January 20, 2018
Where: Episcopal School of Acadiana
1557 Smede Road
Broussard, LA 70518
Time: Registration will begin at 8:00 AM and play will begin between 8:30 AM and 8:45 AM. To allow time to set up the game sites, please plan to arrive at least thirty minutes prior to play if you are providing a buzzer system.
Price: The entry fee will be $60.00 for each team. A $10.00 discount will be given to teams that bring a buzzer system. While you may bring more buzzer systems if you have multiple teams, the discount will be applied once per school. Checks should be payable to Episcopal School of Acadiana.
Format: NAQT style with twenty toss-ups and twenty possible bonus rounds per toss-up. No bounce-back for bonus questions. We will be using Invitational Series # 173A. The format of the preliminary and playoff matches will be finalized once we see how many teams will be participating. You will be notified the week of the tournament if not sooner.
If your school would like to participate in this tournament, you may choose to send your payment to the address above or bring with you to the tournament. If you require an invoice prior to the day of the tournament, it will be available upon request. Registration deadline is Tuesday, January 16.
Lunch will be provided on campus for the tournament. There is no need to leave campus. We will have a meal for all participants courtesy of Rotolo’s. Each person with the team (including parents if they so choose) should bring $5.00 to pay for the meal.
ESA has a rural campus; therefore, we invite you and your team to dress casually so that you may enjoy the outdoors between matches. Be prepared for any weather condition! We are very excited to be holding a tournament again on our beautiful campus. We look forward to seeing you!
