Tuscumbia Fall MS/Elementary Tournament - November 9, 2019

Post by tstockwell » Mon Jul 22, 2019 2:46 pm

I am pleased to announce that Tuscumbia High School will be hosting a MS/Elementary tournament on November 9, 2019. The hard cap on team size is eight players; we request that you limit teams to six players so as to maximize playing time for all students. No more than six players may play in any one match. The field cap for each division will be set at 18 teams.

This tournament will use NAQT's MS-31 question set. PLEASE be sure your students have NOT heard questions from this set.

Matches in the middle school division will consist of twenty ten-point tossups (with the possibility of fifteen for an early correct answer) and up to twenty three-part, thirty point rebounding bonuses. All teams will be guaranteed at least eight matches regardless of performance.

Matches in the elementary division will consist of sixteen ten-point tossups (with the possibility of fifteen for an early correct answer) and up to sixteen three-part, thirty point rebounding bonuses. All teams will be guaranteed at least eight matches regardless of performance.

We will offer a lunch of a hamburger, chips, and drink for $5. There will also be extra soda and candy available for $1. Please give me an estimate of how many meals your team will need, so we can be adequately prepared.

Entry fees are as follows:

base fee (first team from each school): $70
second or subsequent teams: $65
travel discount (100 miles or more one way): -$10 per team
buzzer discount (as needed, and must work for eight players; limit two discounts per school): -$5
scorekeeper discount (as needed, must be trained; first come, first serve): -$5
moderator discount (as needed, must be experienced; first come, first serve): -$10

Payment is required the day of the tournament. Each team should receive an invoice with confirmation of registration.

To register, or if you have any questions whatsoever, please email me at tstockwell@tuscumbialions.k12.mo.us. I hope to see you in November!

The MSHSAA has changed the age groupings for competitions - 6th - 8th grade is now middle school, and 5th grade and below is elementary.
