2016 Pre-Nationals and Singles Championship - 5/14

Washington High School will be hosting this year’s Pre-Nationals and Singles Championship Tournaments. We will be using SCT-16DII from NAQT for our question set, which is a slight step down from the HSNCT-level questions. We will host the tournament on Saturday, May 14th, at Washington Middle School. The address is 401 E. 14th St. in Washington, MO.

This goal of this tournament is to prepare teams for Nationals so there will be a preference for those teams attending one of the national tournaments. Although all teams may attend, teams not registered for NAQT HSNCT or PACE NSC will automatically start on the waitlist. If a school has a team registered, but wants to bring a B or C team not currently registered for the same National events, that non-A team will also be placed on the waitlist. I will open the waitlist Monday, May 2nd, first to non-A teams, then to non-Nationals registered teams.

We will run timed matches of two 9-minute halves, using experienced moderators, with a round robin for the preliminary morning rounds. There will be tie-breakers and an advantaged final to decide the champion.

Registration will begin at 8:30 AM in the Cafeteria, and matches will begin promptly at 9 AM.

Be aware that this event does count toward the 14 tournament limit and can be your only tournament between Districts and Memorial Day weekend (other than districts/sectionals/state).

Fees:
Base fee for the first team from each school: $65
Second or subsequent teams: $55
Travel discount for 100 miles or more one way: -$5 per team
Buzzer discount (buzzers must be functional): -$5 for each buzzer system

Right now, the field is capped at 12 teams, so register soon to guarantee your spot. Please fill out this form to reserve your spot, and we can finalize how many teams you will bring. We look forward to seeing you in mid-May.

Teams can sign up for the tournament here:


Immediately after the main event, we intend to host the MOQBA Singles Championship, which is a tournament in which students play solo against each other in games consisting of 20 tossups. Because this event will only use tossups, it should run very fast. Also, because MSHSAA jurisdiction only involves team-based events, this will not count towards a player’s 14 tournament limit. This event has proven very popular in the past, and players who weren’t even in the main event have traveled in to participate, so we hope to see this year attract a very competitive field again. There will be an 18-player cap. We will be using the Harvard Fall Tournament (HFT X - tossups only) and the cost will be $8 per player.

This morning's field consisted of 3 teams, playing a double round robin without a final. Washington A and Hannibal both went 3-1, with Washington B finishing 0-4.

In the solos championship, Parth of Hannibal won in the second match of an advantaged final against Joe of Washington.
