Post MARS II at FORT OSAGE - Feb. 27th, 2016
Multiple Answer Responses Suggested (MARS) II at FORT OSAGE HS - Feb. 27

Fort Osage High School is pleased to announce the MARS II Spring tournament to be held at Fort Osage High School on February 27, 2016. This tournament will be run in the twenty tossup/bonus format. Matches will consist of 20 tossups with 3 part rebounding bonuses worth up to thirty points. We will be using the Maggie Walker GSAC set (details about the set are below), which will be mirrored at Oakville High School on Feb. 27th, as well. For the first time, this set IS powermarked, so we will have 5 point "negs" for the first incorrect early buzz, along with 15 point "powers."

Set Details:
4/4 Literature (1/1 American, 1/1 British, 1/1 European, 1/1 World/Ancient)
4/4 Science (1/1 Biology, 1/1 Chemistry, 1/1 Physics, 1/1 Other)
4/4 History (1/1 American, 1/1 European, 1/1 World, 1/1 Ancient/Modern (post-1945))
3/3 Fine Arts (1/1 Visual Art, 1/1 Music, 1/1 Other)
2/2 Religion, Mythology
1/1 Trash
.5/.5 Social Science
.5/.5 Philosophy
.5/.5 Geography
.5/.5 Current events and Civics

We will divide the field into preliminary pools that will each play a round robin in the morning, after which all teams will be rebracketed into playoff and consolation pools for the afternoon. After the playoffs, the top teams could play a one or two game championship final depending on playoff standings. All teams will be guaranteed approximately 9 matches throughout the day. Round 1 will begin by 9 AM and we anticipate finishing the afternoon rounds around 4:00 PM with the top couple of teams potentially playing one or two more matches after that. In order to provide the best experience and maximum playing time to all participants, teams are expected to play all of their scheduled matches. Please be sure that you fully understand the time frame before registering.

We will be limiting teams to a maximum of 6 players, so if you have more players, we encourage you to sign up more than one team. We will begin by limiting the field to 18 teams, but further expansion is possible. This is one of the only KC-area Scholar Bowl tournaments in the month of February, so demand should be high. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Base fee (first team from each school): $65
Second or subsequent teams: $60
Travel discount (100 miles or more one way): -$10
Buzzer discount (must work for 8 players, limit 2 per school): -$5
Staffing discount (discretion of tournament director): TBD

To register, please e-mail me to reserve your spot.

Thanks to all the teams that came out today!! We finished 9 rounds by 4 PM, and played a 10th round for final 1-4th placement. All matches were done by 4:30ish. The Robotics competition and other factors altered our preliminary seeding, as teams were missing Varsity starters.

Park Hill took 1st, by winning on the last question of Round 10. NKC B took 2nd, and St. Pius X A took 3rd.

Here is the link to the final stats.

Fort Osage will host its first ever Novice housewrite on April 9th for any teams still interested.
