Post by cardigansrule » Thu Jan 15, 2009 12:35 am

We are pleased to announce the beginning of what we hope may become a Northeast Missouri tradition- Truman Bowl I at Truman State University in Kirksville, MO on March 21, 2009. This tournament is open to all high school teams. We will be using HSAOQ written questions and guarantee each team at least five games. Tournament style will be determined by field size. We will be e-mailing further details to all registered teams (format, directions, etc.)

Pricing for the tournament is as follows:

One team will cost $70 to enter
Any additional teams from the same school will cost $60 to enter.
Any team bringing a buzzer system will receive a $5 discount.
There will be a maximum of $15 discounted.

If you have any questions or concerns,or to register, please feel free to e-mail Tournament Director Hank Kimbrough at jhk5376@truman.edu. We thank you for your interest in our tournament and look forward to seeing you at Truman Bowl I!

A change has been made to the format for Truman Bowl I. In order to accommodate more teams around the region, we will now be holding 2 tournaments on consecutive weekends in March, March 21st and 28th. These tournaments will be wholly independent of each other, and will consist of entirely different questions. However, those teams wishing to compete in both weekends will be given a larger discount.

The pricing for teams wishing to compete in 1 tournament remains the same.

The pricing for teams wishing to compete in BOTH tournaments is as follows:

$110 for the first team from any school.
Additional teams from any school will cost $90.
Buzzer discounts remain the same, but will only be assessed for 1 weekend, with a maximum of $15 discount.
Schools may choose to bring 1 team to both tournaments and 1 to a single weekend, so the cost would be $170, with any discount taken off.

If you have any questions please contact Hank Kimbrough at jhk5376@truman.edu or jhkimbrough@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you at Truman Bowl I!

Could you please post this on moquizbowl.com too? Most of your market reads that site over this one.
