I am pleased to announce that West Middle School in Columbia will be hosting a middle school quiz bowl tournament on Saturday, February 11, 2017. Tentatively, the field will be capped at 18 teams. All students in grades 7 and 8 are eligible to compete. The limit on team size is eight, although teams of six or fewer students are encouraged. Each game consists of twenty tossups and up to twenty three-part, thirty point rebounding bonuses. If you're interested in staffing in exchange for a discount or have students in different grade levels who are not playing in this tournament and are interested in helping out, please let me know!
The tournament will be using a middle school question set written by Olympia Academic Competition Questions, a Missouri-based question company.
Entry fees are as follows:
First team from each school: $65
Second and subsequent teams from each school: $60
Providing a fully functioning buzzer system: -$5 per system
Travel discount (at least 100 miles each way): -$10 per team
Providing a trained scorekeeper: $-5 per scorekeeper (if needed)
Providing an experienced moderator: negotiated on an individual basis
All teams will play at least seven games regardless of performance; the exact format of the tournament will be decided once the field is set. Teams are expected to stay for the duration of the tournament so we can offer all teams their guaranteed number of games.
To register, please email both Jason Loy at firstname.lastname@example.org and Heidi Barnhouse at email@example.com with both the number of teams and buzzer systems that you plan to bring.
