We will have preliminary cap of 18 teams, with some room to expand. I will be co-hosting this tournament with our coach at Rock Bridge, Greg Irwin. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot and how many buzzer sets/staffers you can bring. I am seeking MSHSAA and PACE approval and will update with more information as it becomes available. We look forward to seeing you in April.
Also, I'd like to personally apologize for the late announcement date.
EDIT: We are currently in the process of changing our set due to the many overlaps between IS153A and other tournaments in the area. Our most likely switch will be to 151A, but if that does not work out we will likely be switching to a house write.
EDIT: It appears that the switch to 151A has gone through and the tournament will be played on that set.
EDIT: We still have spots left, last minute additions would be welcome. Barring a large number of late additions this will be a small tournament, but getting a couple more teams would allow us to play a few more rounds.
EDIT: Unfortunately do to a miscommunication with NAQT we were sent the wrong set. Due to overlap with our field we will sadly have to cancel the tournament. I'd like to personally thank Jason Loy and Kyle Hill for helping us organize this tournament and apologize to them, as well as the whole Moberly, Helias, and Richland quiz bowl programs for the unfortunate canceling of this tournament.
