Richard Montgomery High School is excited to announce that we are hosting a spring mirror of our house-written set RMBCT on SUNDAY, MARCH 18, 2018. We had originally intended to host on Saturday the 17th but our school forced us to reschedule. More information about the set can be found here: ... 09&t=20016

The tournament will be held in our school at 250 Richard Montgomery Drive, Rockville, MD 20852

The tournament will be conducted as a round-robin with matches consisting of the reading of an untimed set of 20 tossups and 20 sets of bonuses (each consisting of three parts). 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.

The fee structure is as follows:
Base fee per team: $70
Each additional team: $65
Buzzer discount: -$5
Reader discount: -$10
Travel discount: -$10 for 150 miles away
Minimum fee per team: $40

Registration will begin at 8:15 AM, with matches starting at about 9:00 AM.

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.

We will most likely be capping the field at 24 teams. Teams that register after that cap has been filled will be placed on a wait list.

Just a reminder that this is a SUNDAY tournament. Sorry, we were originally scheduled for Saturday but got moved a month back.

Seeing as we are only five days away, registration is now closed at 18 teams.
Teams may still apply to be put on the waitlist.
