Three Trails Tournament VI - Nov. 17, 2018

Post by FortOsageScholarBowl » Tue Aug 21, 2018 6:15 pm

Fort Osage is pleased to announce Three Trails Tournament VI will be held Saturday, November 17, 2018 at the Fort Osage High School Freshmen Center. This tournament will use the ATHENA II set (a link to the question information is here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... 09&t=20712) which will also be used on November 10 at Washington University-St. Louis. Please ensure that you do not accept a bid to this tournament if you plan to come to Fort Osage.

The ATHENA II set has 15 point "powers" for those who are correct on an early buzz. Consequently, we WILL have "powers" and 5 point "negs" for those who buzz in early and are incorrect.

We will divide the field into preliminary pools that will each play a round robin in the morning, after which teams will be rebracketed into playoff and consolation pools for the afternoon. After the playoffs, the top 2 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 (based on a targeted 18 team field). Round 1 will begin by 9 AM, and we anticipate finishing the afternoon rounds around 4 PM, with the top couple of teams potentially playing one or two more matches after that (as described above). 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 are limiting the field to 18 teams at this time, but that number could change based on interest.

Fees:
Base fee (first team from each school): $65
Second or subsequent teams: $60
Travel discount (100 miles or more one way, based on Google Maps): -$10
Buzzer discount (must work for 8 players, limit 2 per school): -$5
Staffer discount (up to the discretion of tournament organizer): TBD
Minimum cost (if multiple above discounts occur): $40

If you have any questions, please e-mail jmalecki@fortosage.net

Hope to see you at the Fort in November!!
