Post Missouri Fall Academic Tournament - October 19th, 2013
Hello Coaches,

The University of Missouri Quizbowl Club is pleased to announce that we are planning on hosting our sixth annual Missouri Fall Academic Tournament on October 19th, 2013. This is the first varsity invitational tournament of the year, and we hope you will consider our event as a season kickoff for your team. The tournament will be co-directed by Avery Wagner and myself, Itamar Naveh-Benjamin.

We will be using an Invitational Series set written by National Academic Quiz Tournaments, and we will use the same game format as last year (20 tossups with 30 point rebounding bonuses, and tossups will have -5 point penalties for an early buzz that is incorrect, and powers, or an extra 5 points for a correct early buzz). These are the same style of questions that NAQT will be using in the MSHSAA State Championship.

We will be giving out trophies to the top 3 teams, and if we have a large enough field of small schools, we will also give out an award to the top placing small school team. We will be using NAQT's definition of a small school, which is any non-selective public school with 500 or fewer students in grades 10-12.

This tournament will be using a rule where each team can have a maximum of 6 players. If you have more than that, do not feel hesitant signing up an extra team so that every player gets more opportunities to participate in games.

The field will be capped at 36 teams. Spaces will be allotted on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will form a waitlist, and if teams drop, we will proceed down the list in order. If the field fills, then we will be able to guarantee you a 10 game schedule, which we are very excited to offer your team to allow them to get increased early season playing time. Also, if we fill the field, then the top 6 teams and possibly the top small school will qualify for the 2013 NAQT High School National Championship. Additionally, the top teams will qualify for the 2013 PACE National Scholastics Championship.

Field (30/36):
Hallsville
Marquette
Orchard Farm
Tuscumbia (2)
Hickman (2)
Thomas Jeffersn (2)
Parkway West (2)
Rock Bridge (4)
Ladue (4)
Mehlville
Pilot Grove
Webster Groves
Poplar Bluff
Oakville (2)
Salem (2)
Clayton (2)
Hannibal

Fee Structure:
First team from a school: $60
Additional teams from the same school: $55 per team
Buzzer system discount*: -$5 per system per team, up to $20 off.
Staffer discounts: -$5 per team that brings a scorekeeper, and -$15 for each experienced moderator a team brings. This can be a coach, parent, or any other person attending who isn’t playing. We will provide the scorekeeper with a lunch. For both the staff discounts, we need to know about your plans to bring staff before the tournament, and we reserve the right to not take you up on your staff and their discount.

Registering:

This is the first year that we are going to use a Google Form to register. Coaches, pleasure click here in order to access the form. Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will email all of the coaches to ask for rosters around a month before the tournament.

We hope to see you on October 19th for kick off the new Quizbowl season! If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at itamar_naveh_benjamin@yahoo.com.


Itamar Naveh-Benjamin
Tournament Co-Director

I updated the field with the registration of twenty-six teams. Only 10 more open slots, folks!

The field has been updated to reflect the drop of Columbia Independent and the addition of two Salem teams, two Clayton teams, and one Hannibal team. Only six open spots remain!
