Post Tuscumbia Winter JV/MS Tournament - 1/14/17
Hello coaches,

I am pleased to announce that Tuscumbia High School will hosting an academic quiz bowl tournament on Saturday, January 14, 2017 with JV and middle school divisions. Tentatively, both divisions will be capped at 18 teams. All students in grades 7 and 8 are eligible to compete in the middle school division; all students in grades 9 and 10 are eligible for the JV division, regardless of previous experience. The limit on team size in both divisions is eight, although teams of six or fewer students are encouraged. Other than the field limit, there is not a limit on the number of teams that an individual school can bring. Each game consists of twenty tossups and up to twenty three-part, thirty point rebounding bonuses. Each field is initially capped at 18 teams, but we will consider raising the field cap if we have enough staff and space. If you're interested in staffing in exchange for a discount or have students in different grade levels who are not playing in this tournament and are interested in helping out, please let me know!

The JV division will be using the SCOP Novice 7 question set written by coaches and former players from Illinois.

The middle school division will use the SCOP 7 Middle School question set, which is based on the accompanying JV set but will be adapted to be made more accessible to middle school teams.

Entry fees are as follows:

First team from each school: $60
Second and subsequent teams from each school: $55
Providing a fully functioning buzzer system: -$5 per system
Travel discount (at least 100 miles each way): -$10 per team
Providing a trained scorekeeper: $-5 per scorekeeper (if needed)
Providing an experienced moderator: negotiated on an individual basis

All teams in both divisions will play at least eight games regardless of performance; the exact format of the tournament will be decided once the field is set. Teams are expected to stay for the duration of the tournament so we can offer all teams their guaranteed number of games.

Because of the lack of fast food options in and around Tuscumbia, we will be operating a concession stand at lunch and circulating snack carts throughout the day.

Please don't hesitate to email me at jloy@tuscumbialions.k12.mo.us with any questions you may have, and I look forward to receiving your registrations. I hope to see you in January!
