Hallsville Fall Academic Tournament II (10/11/2014)

Hallsville is pleased to announce the second annual Hallsville Fall Academic Tournament to be held October 11th, 2014. This tournament will be run in the twenty tossup/bonus format on NAQT Set IS-138. Games consist of twenty tossups worth ten points each followed by non-rebounding bonuses worth up to thirty points. Tossups will feature "powers" (additional points awarded for correct buzzes very early in the question) but no penalty for an incorrect early buzz (no negs).
We anticipate using two full round robins in the morning and afternoon with an advantaged final to decide the champion depending on the number of teams registered.
This will be the first Saturday of the 2014/15 season that teams are eligible to participate. We have removed the "negs" to encourage younger players to buzz without the fear of a penalty, so we hope that you will not only want to bring your varsity team to the tournament but your JV teams as well.
We will also be limiting teams to a maximum of six players. But you may sign up as many teams as you wish. We are currently capping the field at 18 but may expand if we can acquire enough tournament personnel to host a larger field but still ensure a quality tournament.

Fees:
base fee (first team from each school): $65
second or subsequent teams: $60
travel discount (100 miles or more one way): -$10 per school
buzzer discount (must work for eight players; limit two per school): -$5

To register, please e-mail me at sallen@hallsville.org to reserve your spot. We look forward to seeing you in October.

This tournament will now be on the NAQT IS-138 set and the Missouri Fall Academic Tournament at MU will now be on NAQT IS-140. This change will have no effect on either tournament. It just allows NAQT more time to complete the IS-140 set.

Congratulations to Hickman High School for their victory on Saturday. They beat Hannibal in the first game of an advantaged final to win the second annual Hallsville Fall Academic Tournament. I'd also like to thank all of my moderators and tournament workers who volunteered their Saturday to ensure that this tournament ran so smoothly. Without you, we couldn't have pulled it off.
The stats for this tournament are posted at the following link:
