Post Hallsville Invitational Tournament III (2/7/15)
Hallsville High School is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the third annual Hallsville Invitational Tournament on February 7, 2015. This is a varsity tournament but please feel free to bring additional teams.

This tournament will be run in the twenty tossup/bonus format on the 2014 BISB set. 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) and "negs" (five point deductions for incorrect answers before the question is finished).
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.

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

To register, please e-mail me at to reserve your spot. We look forward to seeing you in February.

We were actually able to host this tournament despite the terrible weather on Saturday (62 degrees and sunny..... which was a vast difference from the weather we had last year on this date).

Hannibal went 9-0 and cleared the field to take 1st place. Waynesville and Washington A were tied at 7-2 so we had a one game play-off which Waynesville won on the last question to take 2nd place with Washington A finishing in 3rd place.

I'd like to thank all those that helped out on Saturday. Things ran very smoothly because we had excellent help that a big thanks to Jeffrey, Kyle, Stephanie, Jason, Luke, Preston and Ciara.

The stats for the tournament are posted below:
