Eureka Kickoff Tournament (10/15/2016)

Post by Mickey0R0urke » Tue Jul 05, 2016 4:20 pm

I'm posting this announcement on behalf of Michael McDonald, the coach at Eureka High School.

Hello everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that Eureka will be hosting a season-opening tournament on October 15, 2016. We will be using NAQT's IS 158, which will also be used at a tournament happening at Hallsville in October, so you will be unable to attend this tournament if you are attending Hallsville's Fall tournament.

Fee Structure
Base Fee: $65 for 1st team, $60 per subsequent team
Moderator Discount: $25 per qualified moderator
Working Buzzer Discount: $5 per system (must work for 2 teams of 4 players each)
Distance Discount: $5 per 100 miles (one-way, as determined by Google Maps)

This tournament will initially be capped at 18 teams, and we will do our best to expand depending on interest and staffer availability. I will email details about the structure of the tournament closer to the day of.

Registration
Please use the following link to register!

I look forward to seeing everybody on October 15th!

We've just received confirmation that we will be using IS 158, which will also be used at a tournament in Hallsville in October. You will be unable to attend this tournament if you are attending Hallsville's tournament.

The initial field cap has been reached, and Lutheran-St. Charles has the first two spots on the waitlist. We're still looking at expanding the field, so fill out the form if you're interested in attending!

Eureka has been given platinum certification by PACE, which means that the top 25% of the field will qualify for the 2017 NSC, which will be at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare from June 10-11, 2017.
