FORKAST IV JV - December 5th. 2019

Post by FortOsageScholarBowl » Fri Nov 08, 2019 10:10 am

Fort Osage High School is pleased to announce the return of the Fort Osage Regional Kickoff After-School Tournament or FORKAST IV on December 5th, 2019 at 3 PM in the Fort Osage High School Freshman Center.

For this tournament, we will use the 20 question tossup/bonus format which we used last year. There will be 10 tossups per half, each with a three part bonus attached. We will be using the Miami Valley RAMS set this year. Details about the set are here: https://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic ... 09&t=22751

Due to time constraints, a maximum of 16 teams will be allowed in this tournament. We would like to have 4 , four team brackets for the 3 preliminary rounds. After a short dinner break, we will rebracket the teams into playoff and consolation brackets. A maximum of 5 rounds will be played.

Due to the time limitations, teams would not be able to leave for their dinner break. We will order pizza to provide for teams, so when you register, please let us know how many pizzas you would need. Teams can, if they choose, bring food with them or send a non-playing individual to get food, but teams will need to stay on campus during the dinner break.

Fees: (includes pizza)
Base fee (first team from each school): $60
Second or subsequent teams: $55
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 December!!
