2018 Rowdy Raider Invitational - IS 179 - 12/1/18

Post by djones » Thu Aug 09, 2018 2:53 pm

The 13th Annual Rowdy Raider Invitational will take place at Northmont High School, Clayton, OH on Saturday, December 1, 2018. We will use NAQT set IS-179.

The initial field cap will be 36 teams, but I will try to open that up if there is interest and I can secure enough competent readers. Each year, this tournament draws an excellent field from Ohio, Kentucky and surrounding states, and we would love to have a large field again this year.

Teams will be broken into 6 preliminary brackets of 6 teams each and will play a round robin. At the conclusion of morning play, teams will be re-bracketed into 6 brackets of 6 to play another round robin, with the top 12 teams at the conclusion of preliminary play being eligible for the tournament championship. A championship match will be played between the winners of the two championship flights in the afternoon. All teams are guaranteed at least 10 games.

FEES:
First Team: $65
Each Additional Team: $55
BUZZER DISCOUNT: -$5 per buzzer system, limit one per team that you are bringing.
MODERATOR DISCOUNT: -$10 for a competent moderator. Please let me know in advance if you are planning to claim this discount. Given that this tournament draws a strong field each year and we want the best possible readers available, we may deny some requests.

Feel free to email me at djones@northmontschools.net if you have any questions! Hope to see you in Clayton in December!

The Rowdy Raider Invitational has been granted Platinum status by PACE, meaning that the top 25% of the field will qualify to the 2019 PACE NSC in Reston, Virginia. As always, the top 15% of the field will qualify to NAQT's HSNCT in Atlanta. Should be a great field - hope to see you in Dayton in December!

Only three spots left after some registrations this weekend. Not sure we will have the ability to expand the field, so if teams are interested, let me know ASAP!!

The tournament filled this morning with the addition of George Washington. Since we are likely unable to expand beyond 36 teams, I withdrew 2 of my Northmont teams from the field to create some additional space. If anyone is interested, please let me know ASAP as this may be the last two spots available. Thanks!
