Ladue Fall Novice Tournament - 10/27/18

Post by agov01 » Fri Aug 24, 2018 3:23 pm

The Ladue Academic team is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a fall, novice-oriented tournament on Saturday, October 27th, 2018.

We will be using the PSACA: Groundhog Day set, information about which can be found here. This set is primarily directed towards novice and mid-level teams, with a difficulty roughly lower than that of an NAQT IS-A set.


Tournament Rules:
• 20 tossups and bonuses per game
• no computational math
• 15 point powers
• no negs
• NO bouncebacks on bonuses

Format:
• 20-team field cap
• Bracketed round robin prelims
• Re-bracketed round robin playoffs
• Four-team superplayoffs and final (if needed)

Entry Fees:
First team from a school: $70
Each additional team: $65
Buzzer discount: $5 per system
Staff discount: $5 per staff member

Registration:
To register, email laduequizbowl@gmail.com, indicating how many teams, buzzers, and staffers your school will be bringing.
Payments mailed in advance should be addressed to Jonah Krueger, 1201 S. Warson Road, St. Louis, MO 63124, although payments on the day of the tournament will also be accepted. All checks should be made out to “LHWHS Attn: Jonah Krueger”.

When registering, please indicate the number of staff and/or buzzers you may be able to bring. We will let you know whether they are needed or not closer to the tournament date.

EDIT: The tournament date has been confirmed for October 27th. We hope to see you there!

Unfortunately, this tournament will be cancelled due to an insufficient field. Although we wanted to give new players a chance to compete early in the season, we felt that the interest we gathered was not enough for our school, coach, and team to host the tournament.

We hope to see you at our spring tournament in March.
