Posted on behalf of Sara Young:

Hello coaches,

I am pleased to announce that Sullivan Middle School will be hosting a middle school quiz bowl tournament on Saturday, November 18, 2017. Tentatively, the tournament's field will be capped at 18 teams; we will consider raising the field cap if we have enough staff and space. All students in grades 7 and 8 enrolled in a MSHSAA member school or affiliate school are eligible. Teams are limited to eight players, although teams of six or fewer are encouraged to maximize each student's playing time. Schools may bring multiple teams. Each game consists of twenty tossups and up to twenty three-part, thirty point rebounding bonuses. 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 tournament will use NAQT's MS-24 question set. If you plan to attend this tournament, please do not attend any other tournaments using MS-24. As of now, the Tri-County (North) conference tournament is the only other middle school tournament in Missouri using MS-24.

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.

You may register by emailing me at youngs@sullivaneagles.org with the number of teams and buzzer systems that you plan on bringing. Please don't hesitate to email me with any questions you may have, and I look forward to receiving your registrations. I hope to see you in November!
