Appreciate seeing a tournament in the works in Northwest Arkansas. A couple questions to give teams a heads-up what to expect:

1) Will this be set to AGQBA format (15 tossups, 10 tossups/bonus, lightning round, 15 tossups) or a different format?
2) Who is the question provider/writer?

On an unrelated note, is Huntsville considering making trips north to tournaments in Springfield, Joplin and thereabouts?

Good to see you on the boards, and hope all is well with the Eagles there in Madison County.

Thanks for the welcome. To respond:

1) We will be following AGQBA format: Round 1 20 -toss up questions, Round 2 toss ups with 4 part bonus questions, round 3 10 question lightning round with bounce backs, Round 4 20 toss ups.

2) Questions at this tournament have been written by my students and a retired coach, They have all been vetted and will all be good.

Thanks for your time

By the same token, we would love to see Huntsville and other northwest Arkansas teams at Missouri tournaments. The dates of most of the tournaments in the southwest part of the state have not been finalized, but it would also be great to have even more geographical diversity at tournaments in the Kansas City, St. Louis, or mid-Missouri areas.
