Post April Eagle Regional Open (4/2/2016)
Orchard Farm is proud to announce the inaugural April Eagle Regional Open (AERO) on April 2, 2016. We will be using BASK, a set written by members of the Columbia University, University of Chicago, and Cornell University quiz bowl team. Information about the set can be found here. Please note, this set will also be used on February, 27, 2016 at Hickman. General tournament rules will include awarding 15-point powers, 5-point penalties for incorrect tossup interrupts, and three non-rebounding bonuses for each of the 20 tossup questions. The tournament will be pooled for prelims followed by playoff rounds, and if needed, include an advantaged final.

There are no restrictions on registering aside from being a member the Missouri State High School Activities Association (or related organization for teams outside of Missouri). Teams not from Missouri are more than welcome to join, but should register for the tournament before March 1, 2016. This is to ensure the tournament is a sanctioned event by both states.

Fee Structure
First team: $70.
Additional teams: $60 each.
Buzzer Discount: $5 per fully functional system. Buzzers must be functional and be able to individually identify at least 8 players.
Travel Discount: $5 per 100 miles of travel (door-to-door, one way as determined by fastest route on Google Maps)
Experienced Moderator Discount: $20 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 a confirmation email, you will be registered for the event.

Our initial cap for the tournament is 24 teams, but will expand if sufficient staff can be secured.

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

Thanks, and I hope to see you at AERO on April 2!

Orchard Farm HS Coach

I want to thank Kevin Stockman and his whole crew at Orchard Farm for running an excellent event yesterday! Despite a little more than usual early morning chaos, we ended the finals on time at 4:55 pm after a triumphant display by Hannibal. Each and every person Kevin has supporting him is quality and I highly encourage anyone reading this, especially coaches, that if you are local to him and want to go to an excellent event that is worth your money to definitely do so ASAP. Thanks for a great day Kevin!
