Bay Area Fall MS Tournament (Oct 19)

Post by njsbling »

The Bay Area Fall Middle School Tournament will take place on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at Stratford School-Fremont Osgood in Fremont. This competition features separate JV and Varsity divisions. Registration will begin at 9:00AM and we plan to start round 1 at 9:30AM.

Questions: We will be using NAQT Middle School Series #31. Schools cannot play both this event and the September 28 Sacramento Fall MS Tournament.

The top 15% of teams will qualify for the 2020 NAQT Middle School National Championship Tournament, to be held near Chicago in May, 2020.

Eligibility: All middle schools (public, private, charter, religious, homeschool, etc.) are eligible to play in this event. This tournament is open to any players who have not yet completed 8th grade, though the questions are targeted at 7th and 8th graders.

Schools are encouraged to enter multiple teams, but please note that players must play for the same team throughout the tournament.


Base fee: $70 per team

-$30 per team from a school that is new to quiz bowl

-$20 per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)

-$20 per staffer (We will hold a brief training session during check-in for those volunteers who have never kept score before.)

Minimum entry fee: $0

Payment (cash or check) will be taken at check-in on October 19. Please write any checks out to Stratford School.

Registration takes place on the NAQT website here.
[one must have an account on the NAQT website in order to register]
