2019 MOQBA Fall Championship - Nov. 23 at Columbia College

Post by Jeffrey Hill » Tue Sep 10, 2019 7:40 pm

The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the MOQBA Fall Championship on November 23, 2019 (the Saturday before Thanksgiving week) at Columbia College in Columbia. As this is one of MOQBA's flagship events, we expect to host a geographically diverse field and encourage high school teams from every area of the state to attend.

The MOQBA Fall Championship will use the 2019 Harvard Fall Tournament (HFT) XIV set written and edited by the Harvard University academic team. As of September 10, this set was not assigned to any other tournament in Missouri. It is your responsibility to ensure that your team has not previously heard this question set and will not compete in any other tournaments using this set. Question set assignments are subject to change at any time; a list of tournaments known to be using this set is available in the forum thread linked above.

For more information about the tournament and a link to the registration form, see the full announcement on our website.

As of this post, there is only one spot remaining in our original 24-team field. Per our announcement, the first team from each additional school that registers before October 15 will be given priority on the waitlist over the 17 B and C teams already waiting for a spot. We hope to be able to expand the field once we have a firmer handle on the number of moderators and scorekeepers we will have available, so if you sign up before October 15 there is a good chance we can fit you into the field. As always, we will do everything we can to accommodate as many teams as possible.

We have now reached our initial cap of 24 teams, so all further registrations will be placed on the waitlist. We are working on expanding the field and are optimistic we will be able to do so, but that is dependent on finding a sufficient number of good moderators. If anyone is interested in staffing on November 23, please get in touch with either Jeffrey or me at your earliest convenience; we provide a free pizza lunch to all our staff and can also reimburse your gas expenses if needed.
