Richard Montgomery Spring Tournament (LIST VI) CANCELLED

Post by avo »

Unfortunately, due to the lack of registrants, we will be cancelling the tournament. We are considering rescheduling but as of now, the tournament will not be happening on April 1st. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Richard Montgomery High School would like to announce that we are hosting our annual spring tournament on Saturday, April 1, 2017 on our main campus in Rockville, Maryland. The tournament will be mirroring the LIST VI set (more information can be found here)

The tournament will be conducted as a round-robin with matches consisting of the reading of an untimed set of 22 tossups and 22 sets of bonuses. We ask that teams carry no more than six players on any single team. Teams planning to bring more than six players should register a second team. Players also cannot switch between their school's teams; they must stay on the same team for the duration of the tournament.

250 Richard Montgomery Drive, Rockville, MD 20852

Tournament Fees
The fee structure is as follows:
Base fee per team: $70
Buzzer discount: -$5
Moderator discount: -$10
Travel discount: -$10 per 100 miles, one-way (via Google Maps)
Minimum fee per team: $50

Registration will begin at 8:15 AM, with matches starting at about 9:00 AM. The tournament should end around 5:00-6:00 PM.

Checks should be made out to “Richard Montgomery High School” with “It’s Academic” as the memo line. They may be mailed in advance to 250 Richard Montgomery Drive, Rockville, MD 20852, with Wendy Sparks in the attention line. Please remember to put the name, as we've had checks lost in the mail because they lacked a named recipient. Payment must be received before or on the day of the tournament.

Please send registrations to [email protected] - in the email, be sure to clearly indicate the number of teams, buzzers, and moderators you plan to bring. Please also include a phone number and email address where we can contact you on the day of the tournament. Remember that forum posts do not constitute a registration.

There will be a soft cap of 24 teams, although this may change if we have more readers. Any team that registers after the cap has been filled will be placed on the waiting list.

An assortment of breakfast foods will be provided in the morning. Lunch will not be provided, but a list of nearby eateries and a map of the local area will be provided instead.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to send them to us at [email protected]. We hope to see you on April 1!
