Post Louisiana EARly November Tournament (LEARNT) - 11/04/2017
Hello!

On behalf of the Louisiana Academic Team, I am pleased to announce that I will be directing the inaugural iteration of the Louisiana EARly November Tournament (LEARNT) on the fourth of November, 2017 (11/04/2017). We will be using IS-170 for this tournament; this set is also being used at the Missouri Fall Academic Tournament as well as by the Gateway Athletic Conference, so make sure you do not share any of these tournaments in common.

Rules/format
Games will use the standard 20 tossup/bonus format. 15 point powers will be used for early correct answers and -5 point negs will be used (for incorrect interrupts before the end of the question and before the other team has buzzed). Bonus bouncebacks will be used. Math computation tossups will not be used and there will be one math computation bonus per round.

Entry fees
First team: $70
Second, third teams (and so on): $65
Functioning buzzer system: -$5
Functioning scorekeeper: -$5
Functioning + experienced moderator*: -$15

(*We reserve the right to deny offers for staff if already covered/not needed.)

Registration
To register, simply e-mail lamoqb@gmail.com with how many teams, buzzer, and staffers you are bringing.
We're placing the initial field cap for this tournament at 18 teams. Expansion to 24 is highly unlikely, but possible.

We look forward to seeing you on November 4th!

This tournament has been given platinum qualification status by PACE, which means that the top 25% (the top 5 teams) will qualify for the 2018 National Scholastics Championship, which is on June 2nd-3rd at the Hyatt Regency in Reston, VA.
