Post Missouri Academic Invitational 2004
The following is the invitation letter for the 2004 Missouri Academic Invitational to be held November 13, 2004 at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Dear Academic Coach,

I am pleased to announce that the Missouri Academic Invitational will be held on Saturday, November 13, 2004. The tournament will be held in the Arts and Science building on the MU campus. Trophies and medals will be given out to top teams and individuals this year.

Due to the long distances many teams must travel to get to Columbia, the tournament will begin at 9:30 a.m. A random draw of all participating teams will take place the morning of the tournament to determine opponents for the morning preliminary rounds. All teams will be guaranteed three matches in the morning (except if we have an odd number of teams, in that case, there will be one bye per round). Top teams (8 or 16, depending on attendance) will move on to the single-elimination afternoon rounds, but for teams that do not make the playoffs or get eliminated, they can still play unofficial scrimmage rounds for practice. MSHSAA rules will be followed throughout the tournament, as we are applying for being an MSHSAA-sanctioned event as usual.

The cost to play is as follows:

· We’re going to bring a team $60
· We’ll bring along a volunteer $55
· We’ll bring a working buzzer system $55
· We’ll bring a volunteer and a system $50
· We’re bringing a second team add $50.

These fees are the same as last year.

Tournament space is limited. Only the first 36 teams to reply will be accepted. To ensure your spot in the MAI, please send the entry form by November 5, 2004. Please make checks payable to MU College Bowl and include a contact email address in your reply. After your entry is received, you will receive a confirmation notice with more information. Note: you can email the filled-out entry form to me. Payment can either be sent in advance (via regular mail) or be presented on the day of the tournament. Just make sure to specify which option you choose.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jcmpn7@mizzou.edu or 573-771-1822. I look forward to seeing you in November.

Sincerely,
Jason Mueller,
MU College Bowl President

Mr. Stallard, stop bashing our tournament! It is a great tournament and is much better than the Rolla tournaments!

November 13 is the same day as all-district orchestra, band, and jazz band auditions in KC... that affects several members of Liberty's team.

Dang, we conflict with band again!? Well, I hope Liberty still comes. I know last year Savannah got second, as Kim Kerr couldn't attend due to band. Come to Mizzou, everyone!

I'm not begging, I'm spreading the word about our excellent tournament! Come to Mizzou, as we have a great tournament and you can see firsthand that Bill Stallard is just jealous and cannot stand that Mizzou and its quiz bowl experiences are better than Rolla and its quiz bowl experiences!

Actually, the main conflict is orchestra, with three members of our team. On a side note, our school musical is that night, which affects (at least) two members.

How many tournament did you guys do to last season? i have 2 (and one of those was just because NAQT needed place holders) As for exprience how about a team putting together an Intramural team, or reaching out to other schools to practice against? Which one of use had his teammates impeach him? How many tournaments have you run Jason? I'm at 4 and after this season I will be at 9. So what is the overall exprience that is better at mizzou, putting up with your ego? One might say you are jealous that a school 10% the size of mizzou is a better school and the team for said school has fun playing quiz bowl and goes to 3 times as many tournament as you do.

Mr. Stallard, we are planning on going to many tournaments this year; last year was an anomaly. We will run great tournaments, we will do well at tournaments, and we will prove that we are the best program in the area. Also, we here at Mizzou have done better at tournaments than you Rolla folks have.

Let's see. Who won Route 66 in 2002? We did. Who won TRASH Regionals in 2002? We did. Who played in the last three NAQT Nationals? We did. Who went to TRASHionals? We did. Who's going to win when we face off this year? We will.

M-I-Z-Z-O-U!

NAQT only because you hosted the worst ever sectional in NAQT history, and last year because wash U needed fill in teams. I believe you guys only won three games ;) Why did you win Trash regionals caused you stayed away from Battleplanet(which by the way is listed as OU and Rolla ;) ) You may have went to TRASHionals but Rolla won it in 2002, took 2nd in 2001(Ben Lea is our coach) and 2003 and took3rd last year so suck on it Jason. Is it true NAQT will not let you be the TD again for any of their tournaments?

List of national champs look at the Trashionals

I haven't heard anything about NAQT not letting me be a TD for any of their tournaments. And when we play TRASH we don't get any help from OU; it's all Tiger Power for us.

Anyway, back to the actual topic. Come to the Mizzou high school tournament on November 13.

It's not my fault that last year's incompetent coup couldn't obtain transportation.
Anyway, I'm back and we will be coming to tournaments. (Although I'm unsure about Rollapalooza/FOGHAT, not because of your rude flaming/dissing of me and Mizzou, but because I'm unsure I can get people to go to Rolla during Homecoming weekend).

Anyway, can we stay on topic? Come to Mizzou November 13!

Definitely sounds like you're begging, Jason. And to my knowledge, only one or two coaches visit and/or post here. Plus KC's already committed to Smithville (I told Jeff they'd get a better glimpse of state competition at your tournament in a decent format (flimsy MEC), but Smithville's sounding like a better leadoff tourney than Lee's Scummit North) and teams from STL will lack math and science players.

You try inviting Kirksville? Hannibal? The NCMC might just be your best bet.

Wishing I could get our guys to host a HS tourney,

Maybe we should set up a poll and see if you're a major rude jerk.

P.S. You've never even been to our tournament. Why don't you ask Paul Nelson about our tournament? He's actually helped out with it (and even wrote a few questions for it two years ago).

Also, if anybody actually has coaches' e-mail addresses, pass them along to me.

One more year of this bickering, and the real college bowl power will arise with little or no formidable challengers...
Thank you Tom, Black Jack, and Harry.

SEMO, yeah, they're fun. I like scoring 17 tossups in a game and winning 475 to minus 5. Of course they were supposed to come to our NAQT Sectional; they no-showed and screwed up the Division II bracket.
SMS, well, they can improve; isn't Darren Wood going there?

A good TD except things to go wrong and plan for them, not coming up with a new bracket as you hold up the tournament

Yeah, very funny. I of course am referring to the school where all of its returning in-state members have earned all-district honors, and almost all have state championship experience. The school where 24 students expressed interest in joining the team this year. The school which will successfully defend its Region 11 CBI Title.

I'm fairly certain you both knew what I was getting at to begin with.

I'd vote yes in both. Just a thought.

Well, I consider myself a passable science player, but the only reason I might have a problem is all-district choir that day. Darn it...and I had looked forward to going...I'll pass this on to my coach anyway. Thanks Jason.

Hey, this is Manda. I'm on the Viburnum team, and I was just wondering what time the tourney would be over on Saturday, cause I have a Story of the Year concert to attend. Can anyone get me a schedule? I LOVE KU!!

Shut up, Bill. I'm just about to send out tournament info. Registration will start at 8:30 a.m. and the tournament should be over at 5 p.m. (sooner for teams that get eliminated earlier and don't want to play the playoff packets for fun). Also, ku stinks.

Alright thanks for the info guys. Unfortunately, our main tourney scheduler screwed some stuff up, and we have transportation, so looks like I'll get to see SOTY afterwhile. And don't diss KU, I was talkin bou basketball anyway. I don't know squat about other teams.

So far, we have Pilot Grove, Tuscumbia, Viburnum, Rock Bridge (1 or 2), Boonville, and Helias (2); although I just heard that Eureka may be coming. Also, I sent out the e-mail with details out to Matt, so make sure he forwards it to the Viburnum coach.
