Holt Winter Invitational - 1/7/17

Post by kstockman »

On behalf of Brett Saunier at Holt High School, I would like to announce the following tournament:

Fellow Coaches,

Holt High School Scholar Bowl is glad to announce, in affiliation with the Missouri Quizbowl Association (MOQBA), the 1st Annual Holt Winter Invitational on Saturday, January 7, 2017. We will be using NAQT Invitational Series 161A which will also be used at Lee’s Summit North (12/3/16) and Houston (2/25/17). General tournament rules will include awarding additional point for significantly early buzzes on tossups (powers), not penalizing incorrect early buzzes (no negs), and bonus questions will rebound.

Since this is our first year of hosting, we will try and limit it to a smaller field. We will limit it to 20 teams to start and we may expand it further if there is a large interest and if we have the moderators for it. So please respond quickly.

Please note: Your team (not just your school) must be registered with the Missouri High School Activities Association (or equivalent organization for non-Missouri teams) to attend this event. If you are not registered, please contact your school’s activities director for more information.

In addition, schools that placed 1st-4th at the 2016 MSHSAA State Tournament (or equivalent state championship) or made the Championship Bracket at the NAQT Missouri Qualifier on March 5, 2016, will not be eligible to participate in this event. A list of those schools is below.

Fee Structure:
$60 – First team
$55 – Each additional team
$5 – Discount per fully functional (8+ person) buzzer system.
$10 – Discount per experienced moderator (approved by tournament director prior to even)
$10 – Discount for any school that did not participate in a MOQBA event last year

Registration:
Please complete this Google Form to enter your school’s information. Once you have received an email from the tournament director, you will be registered for the event.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks, and I hope to see you on January 7!
