Post Missouri Fall Academic Tournament - October 17th, 2015
Hello Coaches,

The University of Missouri Quizbowl Club is pleased to announce that we are planning on hosting our eighth annual Missouri Fall Academic Tournament on October 17th, 2015. Sean Philips has graciously volunteered his time and will help me co-direct this year's tournament.

We're currently counting on using an NAQT IS set for the tournament, but this is tentative until I receive confirmation from NAQT that a set will be available. We will update coaches as soon as we have confirmation.

We will be giving out trophies to the top 3 teams, and if we have a large enough field of small schools, we will also give out an award to the top placing small school team. We will be using NAQT's definition of a small school, which is any non-selective public school with 500 or fewer students in grades 10-12.

This tournament will be using a rule where each team can have a maximum of 6 players. If you have more than that, do not feel hesitant signing up an extra team so that every player gets more opportunities to participate in games.

The field will be capped at 24 teams. Spaces will be allotted on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will form a waitlist, and if teams drop, we will proceed down the list in order. If the field fills, then we will be able to guarantee you a 10 game schedule, which we are very excited to offer your team to allow them to get increased early season playing time. Also, if we fill the field, then the top 6 teams and possibly the top small school will qualify for the 2015 NAQT High School National Championship. Additionally, the top teams will qualify for the 2015 PACE National Scholastics Championship.

We hope to expand the field, but we're setting a 24 team cap until we're sure we have enough staff to host a larger event.

Field (0/24):

Fee Structure:
First team from a school: $65
Additional teams from the same school: $60 per team
Buzzer system discount*: -$5 per system per team, up to $20 off.
Staffer discounts: -$5 per team that brings a scorekeeper, and -$15 for each experienced moderator a team brings. This can be a coach, parent, or any other person attending who isn’t playing. We will provide the scorekeeper with a lunch. For both the staff discounts, we need to know about your plans to bring staff before the tournament, and we reserve the right to not take you up on your staff and their discount.

Registering:

To register your team, please contact us at mizzouquizbowl@gmail.com with your school name, along with the number of teams, buzzers, and staffers you plan on bringing. Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will email all of the coaches to ask for rosters around a month before the tournament.

We hope to see you on October 17th for what should be an excellent tournament! If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at mizzouquizbowl@gmail.com.

Camdenton's registration means we have hit our initial cap of 24 teams. If you are still interested by all means let us wait list you in the event there is a drop or if we decide we can expand the field.

Once again on behalf of Itamar Naveh-Benjamin and the Mizzou Quizbowl Club I thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming yesterday! I hope each and every one of you had as much fun participating in that event as we did hosting it.

I'd also like to thank our incredible staff without whom this day would not have been possible: Matt Chadbourne, Kyle Hill, Jeffrey M Hill, Greg Irwin, Sierra from Tuscumbia, Jacob Bryce O'Rourke, David Dennis, Jason Loy, John Perlik, Colin, CJ and Jessica Leutkemeyer, Will Mason, Scott Allen,Sherry Xie, Franziska Weston, Erik Tomasic, Victor Topouria, Diana Harmata, and Charles Hang! This event would not have run half as well without each and all of them so thank you all! Extra special thanks to Iron Jeff Hill who moderated all 14 rounds yesterday!

Full statistics can be found online at the above links Jacob posted (Thank you for doing that Jacob!) If I misspelled any of your players' names (which if I know myself I probably have accidentally done) just let me know and I'll fix it.

Once again thank you so much for such an awesome day and a wonderful way to help kick off what many of us feel is going to be a very fun season!

Sincerely,

Sean Phillips
Co-Tournament Director, 2015 Mizzou Fall Academic Tournament
