St. Mark's Invitational IX - 2/25 (Dallas, TX)

Post by johnc » Wed Jan 18, 2017 7:47 pm

On Saturday, February 25, 2017, St. Mark’s School of Texas, with support from the Texas Quiz Bowl Alliance, will be hosting its ninth annual NAQT tournament in Dallas at St. Mark’s (10600 Preston Rd., Dallas, TX 75230). The event will feature separate Varsity and Novice divisions for high school. Both divisions will use IS-164.

Schools may bring multiple teams. Registration for the tournament must be done online through the NAQT website. Click here to register a single team. Be sure to select the appropriate level for your team, either the Novice or Varsity division. If you plan on bringing multiple teams, please register each team separately. The cost of the tournament will be $110 per team with a $10 discount for providing a fully operational buzzer system. The entry deadline is Friday, February 17. Each team will receive a copy of the questions at the conclusion of the tournament.

Previous years have seen around 32 teams attend the tournament; given that we reach that same size this year, we will have 5 seeding games and a double elimination playoff. If we have too few teams for a double elimination tournament, we will run a simple round-robin tournament.

This tournament recruits the best teams in Texas to come up and play. Previous teams have included: LASA, St. John's, Cistercian, and Seven Lakes. Of course, non-Texas teams are more than welcome to join too.

If you have any questions, email or send me a pm on this forum.
