ANNOUNCEMENT: MSU Fall College Tournament (11/8/08)

Post by jhn31 »

The MSU Quiz Bowl Club is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the MSU Fall College Tournament on Saturday, November 8, 2008 at Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi.

We will be using NAQT set IS-79 for this tournament.

Fee structure:
Base fee: $80
Buzzer systems: -$5 each
Staffers: -$10 each
Travel: -$10 for every 200 miles traveled one way

Eligibility:
Any two-year or four-year institution is welcome to come. Graduate students are welcome to play, but they must play on a team with no more than 2 people. Also, anyone who has played at the ICT may only play on a solo- or two-person team.


On Sunday, November 9, we are also hosting ACF Fall (info here). Teams can receive a discount for that tournament if they play in this one.

The tournament will begin at 9 AM on Saturday, November 8, with registration beginning at 8:30.

If you plan to attend the tournament or have any questions, please e-mail me, Harry Nelson at [email protected].

An IS tournament for colleges on the date of ACF Fall? Really?

They're doing ACF Fall the next day. This doesn't obviate the problems with running high-school questions for colleges as a general principle, but they aren't competing with Fall or anything.

Congratulations to Alabama G (grad team) for winning the tournament. They defeated MSU in a 1-game final when both teams finished 9-1 on the day.

Note: A team leaving after the 4th round forced an impromtu rescheduling off the top of my head, which is why every team's game totals don't match.

I guess NAQT high school questions really are impossible!
