NAQT MS-24 @ Miami Valley (Dayton, OH): 1/27/18

Post by trbenedict » Fri Jan 05, 2018 12:29 pm

The Miami Valley School quiz bowl team cordially invites you to the rescheduled middle school division of Give Thanks for Matt's Buzzers IV on January 27, 2018. This tournament will take place at The Miami Valley School in Dayton, OH after being held at Olentangy Liberty in Powell, OH for the past three years.

The initial field cap for the middle school division will be 12 teams. If there is sufficient interest, we will try to raise this cap (particularly for HS), provided that we have enough moderators and we can secure enough space on our small campus.

Assuming a full field, teams will be split into two morning brackets of six and play round robin. In the afternoon, teams will be re-bracketed into three brackets of four (championship, first consolation, and second consolation) and play round robin again. If necessary, there will be a final played (either advantaged or unadvantaged depending on records of teams involved). This format is subject to change depending on field size, but all teams will be guaranteed eight games.

This tournament will be held on NAQT MS-24.

Payment can be made to The Miami Valley School (put "Quiz Bowl" in the memo). Our address is 5151 Denise Dr, Dayton, OH 45429. You may also bring cash or check to the tournament site.

Registration will be from 8:00 A.M. until 8:30 A.M., followed by a brief meeting for coaches and players. We expect to begin play promptly at 9:00 A.M.

FEES:
First Team: $55
Each Additional Team: $45
BUZZER DISCOUNT: -$5 per buzzer system, limit two per team that you are bringing.
READER DISCOUNT: -$10 for a competent moderator, limit two per team that you are bringing.
TRAVEL DISCOUNT: There is a $10 discount for teams traveling over 100 miles one way (our zip code is 45429).
MINIMUM Fee: $35

If your program has not played a pyramidal tossup-bonus quiz bowl tournament in the last three years, your team(s) will automatically qualify for the minimum fee of $35. Please ask if you have questions regarding this discount. If your program has received a grant from Matt's Buzzers in the past, your team(s) will automatically qualify for the minimum fee of $35.

For lunch, we will offer cheese and pepperoni pizza for $10/pie.

To register or for more information contact Tyler Benedict: tyler DOT benedict AT mvschool DOT com. We hope to see you in Dayton in January!
