Missouri Fall Academic Tournament-October 29th, 2022

Post by InfinitePenguin »

Hello Everyone,
The University of Missouri Quizbowl Club is pleased to announce the 14th edition of the Missouri Fall Academic Tournament(MFAT) will take place Saturday October 29th, 2022.

I’m Felix Wang and will be the Tournament Director, with assistance from MOQBA and the Mizzou Quiz Bowl Club.


We have secured NAQT’s IS-Set#215.

The tournament will be in 20/20 format. We will be using 15 point powers and we will be using 5 point negs. There will also be no bounce-backs at this tournament.

We will give out trophies to the top 4 teams. We will also present an award to the top-placing small school. We will base the small school judgement on NAQT’s definition found here:
https://www.naqt.com/hs/small-school.html#public
The number of bids for SSNCT will be based upon how many teams register. Teams eligible for SSNCT Open may receive an SSNCT bid, but will be ineligible for the small school title.

There will be a maximum of 6 players on each team roster. If you would like to bring more players, please do not hesitate to sign up multiple teams in order to get the maximum amount of experience for your players.

The field will initially be capped at 24 teams, with a waitlist forming for further interest. Registration will be on a first come, first serve basis, and if teams are to drop, teams will be chosen off the waitlist in the order of their registration. If the field fills, we will be able to guarantee teams 10 games, providing a significant amount of early season experience. In addition, the top 15% of teams will qualify for the 2023 High School National Championship Tournament in Atlanta. Details regarding qualification for the 2023 PACE NSC will be available at a later date.

While this field is initially capped at 24 teams, we hope to expand once we can guarantee we have enough staffers to support a larger field.

Fee Structure:
$70 per team
Buzzer system discount*: -$5 per system per team, up to $20 off.
Staffer discounts: -$5 per team that brings a scorekeeper, and -$15 for each experienced moderator a team brings. This can be a coach, parent, or any other person attending who isn’t playing. We will provide them with lunch. For both the staff discounts, we need to know about your plans to bring staff before the tournament, and we reserve the right to not take you up on your staff and their discount.

Registration:

To register, please contact me at mizzouquizbowl@gmail.com with your school name, along with the number of teams, buzzers, and staffers you plan on bringing. Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will email all of the coaches to ask for rosters around 2 weeks before the tournament.

The tournament will be held in Arts & Science Hall. We will begin registration at 8:15 and would like all teams to be in Arts & Science by 8:45. We will then begin playing at 9:00AM.

We hope to see you all on October 29th for what is sure to be a fun as well as a quality tournament early in the season. For any questions don’t hesitate to contact me at mizzouquizbowl@gmail.com

-Felix Wang
MU Quizbowl President
