Post Sullivan Middle School 2/20/16
Posted on behalf of Sullivan coach Sara Young:

Sullivan will be hosting a Middle School (7th and 8th grade) tournament on February 20, 2016.

The tournament will be in the 20 Tossup/20 Bonus format, with powers (15 pts. for early correct answers) and with bouncebacks on bonuses. There will not be negs (-5 for early incorrect answers) We will use question set MS-16 from National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT). This is the same set as will be used at Camdenton on April 2nd. You cannot attend both tournaments. You can find free sample questions at http://www.naqt.com.

We are currently capping the field at 18 teams. The field can expand if there is significantly more interest and staff.

Prices are:
- $45 for the first team for a school, $40 for each additional team. (B, etc.)
- Fully functional buzzer systems are a $5 discount.
- Providing a scorekeeper is a $5 discount. Please let us know about these well in advance. We reserve the right to refuse this discount.
- Providing an experienced moderator (reader) is a $10 discount. Please let us know about these well in advance. We reserve the right to refuse this discount.
- Teams traveling over 100 miles (one way per Google Maps) will receive a $5 discount.

Registration will begin at 8:30, the first matches will take place at 9:00 AM, and there will be a lunch break around 12 PM. There will be a concession stand (popcorn, candy, and sodas) open during the day. There are several options for lunch in town.

Spots will be filled on a first come/first served basis. Please use this form to register. You are not registered until you receive a confirmation email from the tournament director. If interest and staffing permits, we will lift the cap to as high as we can accommodate. Again, please let us know about buzzers and moderators as early as possible.

The top 3 teams will receive a trophy. There are prizes (books and medals) for the top 10 individual scorers.

Our school’s address is 1156 Elmont Rd, Sullivan, MO 63080.

If you have any other questions, my email is youngs@sullivaneagles.org or you can contact the co-tournament director David Dennis at david.dennis@washington.k12.mo.us.

After playoffs, Washington A, Washington B, and Washington C were all 2-1.

The tiebreaker (total points) for B places them in the final by 5 points. A is playing C for the right to join that final.

Union B is 4th.

Rounds 6-8 stats are here.
