Post Orchard Farm Winter Invitational (1/9/16)
Orchard Farm is glad to announce the 4th Annual Orchard Farm Winter Invitational on January 9, 2016. We will be using NAQT Invitational Series 151A, which will also be used at the Marionville Academic Team Challenge on 10/31/15. General tournament rules will include awarding additional points for significantly early buzzes on tossups (powers), not penalizing incorrect early buzzes (no negs), and bonus questions will rebound.

Please note: Your team (not just your school) must be registered with MSHSAA to attend this event. If you are not registered, contact your school's activities director for more information.

In addition, schools that placed 1st-4th at the 2015 MSHSAA State Tournament or made the championship bracket at the NAQT Missouri Qualifier on March 7, 2015, will not be eligible to participate in this event. A list of those teams is below.

Fee Structure
First team: $60.
Additional teams: $55 each.
Buzzer Discount: $5 per fully functional system. Buzzers must be functional and be able to individually identify at least 8 players.
MOQBA Event Discount: $10 for any school that did not participate in an MOQBA event last year
Experienced Moderator Discount: $10 for each experienced moderator a team brings. Moderators must be approved prior to the tournament to receive the discount.

Registration
Rather than sending an email, please complete this Google Form to enter your school's information. Once you have received an official confirmation email, you will be registered for the event.

If you have any questions, my contact information is below.

Thanks, and I hope to see you at "The Farm" on January 9!

This should be Central (St. Joseph) finishing in the top 4 at MSHSAA State. (I made the same mistake several times that day... :oops:)

--edit--
Washington also advanced a team to the championship bracket at the Qualifier.

We have now filled up and are taking teams for the waitlist. If more staff can be secured, there's a possibility of expanding the tournament.

Thank you to all the teams that braved the weather. We had an outstanding tournament and I would like to congratulate Francis Howell for their tournament victory. Howell beat Parkway South A in the final and Eureka placed third.
