TJMST @ TJHSST, 1/27/2018 [NAQT MS-23]

Post by AwkwardDioxide »

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the annual Thomas Jefferson Middle School Tournament (TJMST) on January 27th, 2018.

The tournament will run on NAQT’s MS-23 question set. Standard NAQT rules will be in effect, with the exception of rounds being untimed. The top 15% of the field will qualify for the 2018 NAQT Middle School National Championship Tournament (MSNCT).

TJMST's current field cap is 20, but this may be increased depending on room availability. Please sign up by 1/20/2018. Teams will be limited to a maximum of 6 people, and schools planning to bring more than 6 students must register multiple teams. During the rounds, up to 4 students are permitted to play at any given time, and up to 2 students can sub out at halftime. Teams are also allowed to have fewer than 4 people.

Registration will begin at 8:15 AM, and the opening meeting will start at 9:00 AM. Rules and regulations will be explained for any new Quizbowl teams and basic breakfast foods will be provided. Pizza will be available for order in the morning and will be delivered by lunch. The tournament will be held at TJHSST (6560 Braddock Road, Alexandria, VA 22312) and is set for January 27th, weather permitting. If not, we will reschedule for a later date.

Registration fees per team:
$70 for schools that regularly participate in pyramidal quizbowl
$40 for schools that are new to pyramidal quizbowl

-$5 per each fully functional buzzer set, defined as having at least 8 working buzzers
-$10 for moderators with reading experience for pyramidal quizbowl tournaments
-$10 for teams travelling over 150 miles
Minimum fee of $45 for schools that regularly participate in pyramidal quizbowl

Registration fees can be paid through cash or by check. Checks should be made payable to TJHSST Quizbowl with your school’s name and Registration Fee in the memo line. While payment the day of the tournament is preferable, mailing it in advance will work as well. Anything sent via mail should be addressed to TJHSST Quizbowl c/o John Laffey at 6560 Braddock Road, Alexandria, VA, 22312.
