Ladue Fall Novice Tournament ― 11/16/19

Post by eygotem » Sun Aug 04, 2019 12:26 am

Hello everyone,

The Ladue Quizbowl Team is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Ladue Fall Novice Tournament on Saturday, November 16th, 2019. This tournament will be primarily aimed at newer players, and will be a great way for them to hone their skills on an easier question set (although older players are welcome to help staff). We hope to attract teams from across the state, and possibly some out-of-state teams as well.

For questions, we will be using RAMS 2, a housewritten, middle school-difficulty set written by the Miami Valley quizbowl team. Full details can be found here.

Eligibility
In order to ensure a level playing field, all players must meet the following requirements:
• be in their first or second year of playing multi-subject pyramidal quizbowl outside of the MSHSAA State Series, AND
• have never played in HSNCT, PACE NSC, or NASAT

Tournament Rules
• 20 tossups and bonuses per game
• no computational math
• 15 point powers
• no negs
• no bouncebacks on bonuses

Format
• 16-team field with the possibility that this might expand
• Bracketed round robin prelims
• Re-bracketed round robin playoffs
• Four-team superplayoffs and final if needed

Entry Fees
First team from a school: $65
Second, third, etc. teams from the same school: $55
Buzzer discount*: -$5 per system
Staff discount*: -$5 per staff member
New team discount: -$25 for teams that have not attended any multi-subject pyramidal quizbowl tournaments for the past 3 years

*Buzzers and staff are on an as-needed, first-come, first-serve basis. When registering, please detail how many staff and/or buzzers you may be able to bring. As the tournament approaches, we will let you know whether they are needed or not.

Any payment mailed in advance should be addressed to Jonah Krueger, 1201 S. Warson, St. Louis, MO 63124, though it is also fine to pay on the day of the tournament. Please make all checks out to "LHWHS Attn: Jonah Krueger".

We are setting a tentative field cap of 16 teams. There is no maximum to the number of teams each school may bring. We will likely be able to expand if there is enough interest, but until that point, we will accept teams on a first-come, first-serve basis. If our field fills, we will be able to guarantee every team in attendance at least 8 games, if not more. Fields can fill fast, so sign up soon to reserve your slot! To register, please send an email to laduequizbowl@gmail.com.

If you have any questions, or wish to register, please email laduequizbowl@gmail.com. We hope to see you here at Ladue on November 16th!

Edit: The post has been updated to include the link for the RAMS 2 set.

Request: If any forum moderators can see this, would it be possible to remove the "Re:" from the name of this thread? Thanks
