Pilot Grove Winter Invitational

Post by iwinn44 » Tue Sep 11, 2018 12:21 pm

I am pleased to announce that Pilot Grove High School will be hosting the Pilot Grove Winter Invitational academic tournament on Saturday, January 5, 2019. We will be using NAQT’s IS-180A question set. We are setting the team size limit to 6, but you may register more than one team. Each game will consist of 20 toss-ups with up to 20 three-part 30 point rebounding bonuses. There will be powers, but no negs. We will cap the field at 14 teams, and we will register teams on a first-come, first served basis. If we have more than 14 teams who want to play, we will place you on a waiting list. The cap will be raised if we can secure enough staff to work the tournament.

Teams who participated in the Small Schools Nationals (SSNCT) ARE eligible to play, but teams that went to either open-eligibility nationals (HSNCT or NSC attendees or top 4 in MSHSAA State) will be ineligible to play.

The entry fees are as follows:

1st team from each school: $65
2nd and subsequent teams from each school $60
Buzzer discount -$5
Travel discount (100 miles each way) -$10
Scorekeeper (if needed) -$5
Providing an experienced moderator - to be negotiated on an individual basis

All teams will play at least 8 games regardless of performance, and all teams will be expected to stay throughout the tournament’s duration so that we can offer everyone their guaranteed number of games.

To register, please email Tara Winn at twinn@pilotgrove.k12.mo.us and let us know the number of teams, fully functioning buzzer sets, and scorekeepers/moderators you plan to bring.
Please email me if you have any questions, and we look forward to seeing you on January 5, 2019!
