Bloomington High School is interested in attending and competing in this as well!

We should have 2- 3 teams with 2 buzzer sets.

Please put Fenton down for 1 team. We can bring 1 buzzer system and I can staff if needed.

I have just received word that this tournament is Platinum certified by PACE. The top 25% of the field will qualify for the 2013 PACE NSC tournament.

Based on the amount of interest, I am announcing that there will be a small pop culture side event after this tournament.

Format: tossup-only, 20pt powers, no negs. Teams of up to 4. Anyone can play (even hobos if they fork over the dough). $5/head, proceeds go towards Matt's Buzzers.

If you want in, shoot me an email.

Sidney would like to bring one team. I will get the registration form filled out and e-mailed in and the requisition for the check filled out this afternoon.

Edit: School being difficult about out of state travel - not looking good :sad:

Excellent! The field has expanded a lot in the last couple days. We are temporarily capping the field at 18 due to staffing concerns, but would happily grow further if enough teams and moderators are interested. If you want in this field, though, please register soon.

Northmont beat Macomb in the first game of a final in which they were advantaged. Third place was Fenton; fourth place was Bloomington A. Tristan Willey (Macomb) was the top individual scorer in the prelims, with 202.86 ppg.

After the tournament, there was a small trash tournament. The Mike Sorice-led "We Hate Basketball With All Our Heart" went 7-0 to clear the field. The funds raised will be donated to Matt's Buzzers.

Thanks to Bloomington, Centennial, and IMSA for sticking around despite the logisticial snafus. Major thanks to Arun Doogar (Centennial), Jonah Greenthal, and Sabrina Lato (IMSA) for reading, and the other IMSA players who scorekept.
