Post Missile of October mirror at Rock Bridge
This post is just a heads up to any college people reading this that Rock Bridge got approved to run a mirror of the MOO tournament being written by the University of Michigan and University of Virginia's quizbowl teams, and it will probably be on October 1st pending confirmation of that date from people with more decision making power than me. We welcome all college teams to attend, and we will be again allowing high schoolers to play on their own open teams also, Battle Hymn of the Tamil Tiger Mother-style. More information to be released down the line.

Since this is about 140 miles round-trip less than the main site (and I have a car with a low-mileage lease), at least one Illinois team will attend this mirror.

Hello everyone,

Rock Bridge High School in Columbia, MO has officially decided to run a mirror of the Missiles of October tournament on October 1st, 2011. I will be the tournament director. The set is being written and edited by quizbowl teams at the University of Michigan and the University of Virginia, and it will be a "regular difficulty" event.

We will be allowing teams representing different colleges, made up of students at those colleges who are eligible to play in either official NAQT or ACF events this season, including graduate students. We will also allow open teams for high schoolers to play in the event, although we will not allow any college students or people to play on any open team.

The base fee for this tournament will be $120 per team. Discounts for the following things will be offered:

$5 off for each buzzer a team brings
$10 for each staffer a team brings (that staffer also gets free lunch)
$10 for every 200 miles a team travels, one way, as determined by Google maps

You will need to pay the quizbowl team at Rock Bridge HS.

Rock Bridge's street address is 4303 S Providence Rd., Columbia, MO, 65203. We will be meeting at 8:30 AM in the media center, and starting games at 9.

To register, please email CharlesDeesMOQBA@gmail.com, and let me know how many teams you will be bringing, and what discounts you will be claiming.

The following teams are attending:
Harding University

See you all in October!
-Charlie Dees
