Post Tuscumbia Winter High School Tournament - 12/6/14
Hello coaches,

Tuscumbia High School will be hosting an academic tournament on December 6, 2014 using NAQT's IS-142 question set. This question set is also being used at a tournament in Washington on February 21; as a result, you may not attend both tournaments.

The initial field cap for this tournament is twelve teams. Each team will be guaranteed eight games regardless of performance; that number may rise depending on the number of attending teams. Games will consist of 20 tossups and up to 20 three part 30-point, rebounding bonuses. 15 point powers and 5 point negs will be used on tossups. Math calculation tossups will not be read. This tournament will be a qualifier for NAQT's High School National Championship Tournament; the top 15% of the field will qualify.

Entry fees are as follows:

Base fee: $55
Base fee for second and subsequent teams from the same school: $50
-$5 for each working buzzer set (limit three discounts per school)
$-10 per team traveling over 100 miles one way

Staff discounts will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis and will be awarded based on need.

To register, please send me an email at jloy@tuscumbialions.k12.mo.us stating the number of teams and buzzer systems you plan to bring. We hope to see you in December!

Thank you,

Jason Loy
Tuscumbia High School

Due to several generous offers of staffing help, we are now able to slightly expand the field to 14 teams. The field is currently full. I will consider further expanding the field once we're able to find more staff.

Now I wish I went to Mystery School growing up.

What would their mascot be? The Fighting Shadows?

Actually it's an anthromorphic question mark.

More like the fighting magnifying glass. They incinerate everyone they meet on the football field.
