I am happy to announce a high school tournament at East Central College on November 2nd, 2019. It will be held in the west end of Hansen Hall at East Central College in Union, MO.
The tournament will be in the 20 Tossup/20 Bonus format. We will be using “Powers,” or 15 points for an early correct answer, but we will NOT be using “Negs” or “Interrupts” (-5 for early incorrect answers) Bonuses will be three parts, but will not rebound.
We are restricting team rosters to 6 players. If you have more players, feel free to sign them up for a second team. We are currently capping the field at 18 teams, but can expand if we are sure of more staffing help.
This tournament will be using the regular-difficulty RAFT question set Details about the writers, editors, and distribution can be found here.
$60 for the first team from a school, $55 for each additional team. (B, C, D, etc.)
- Fully functional buzzer systems are a $5 discount (must work for 8 players, limit 2 per team)
- Providing an experienced moderator (reader) is a $10 discount. Please let us know about these well in advance. We reserve the right to refuse moderators.
Registration will begin at 8:15 AM, the first matches will take place at 9:00 AM, and there will be a lunch break around 12 PM. Most teams should be done by 3 PM.
Spots will be filled on a first come/first served basis. Rather than emailing me, please use this form to register. You are not registered until you receive a confirmation email from the tournament director.
Teams placing 1st-3rd will receive a trophy. There are prizes for the top 10 individual scorers from prelims.
One cool thing - this was the first tournament I can think of where every single team in attendance had a player go home with a scoring medal.
Stats are here.
Thanks to our staffers: Joel and Lynda Doepker, Sara Young, and Current and Former members of the ECC Team - Adam, Gwen, Jeremy and Josh.
