10/22 North Kansas City JV/Novice

Post by pat.okeefe » Tue Sep 13, 2016 10:32 am


We will be hosting our annual JV Scholar Bowl Tournament on October 22, 2016 at North Kansas City High School.

The tournament will be a mirror of the SCOP Novice 7 set produced by the Scholastic Community Outreach Program of Illinois, which is specially written to appeal to newer or inexperienced players. At the time of this announcement, this set is also assigned to these other Missouri tournaments:

• Oakville SCOP Novice on October 29

• Tuscumbia Winter JV/Middle School Tournament on January 14

If you have attended or are planning to attend one of these tournaments or any other tournament using the SCOP Novice set, your team is ineligible to participate in this tournament. Question set assignments are subject to change at any time; more information about the SCOP Novice set and a complete list of tournaments using the set are available here: ... 09&t=18739

This tournament will have eligibility restrictions:

• All freshmen may play.

• Sophomores may play if they did not attend a national tournament (NAQT HSNCT, NAQT SSNCT, or PACE NSC) in their freshman year.

• Juniors may play if this is their first year of quizbowl.

• No seniors may play.

We will be limiting teams to a maximum of six players, so if you have more than six players, please do not feel hesitant about signing up a second or even third team! The extra playing time will be an invaluable experience for your novice players!

Each round will consist of 20 tossup questions with 3-part bonuses should a team answer a tossup correctly. The tournament will use 15-point "powers" (reward for an early enough buzz), but will not be using "negs". Bonuses will be rebounding. There is no computational math in the SCOP Novice Tournament set.

The field will be capped at 24 teams. Teams will be divided into preliminary pools that will each play a round robin in the morning, after which all teams will be rebracketed into playoff and consolation pools for the afternoon. All teams will be guaranteed approximately 8-9 matches throughout the day. Registration will be from 8:00 to 8:30, with a brief team meeting around 8:30 before round 1 begins by 9:00. We anticipate finishing the afternoon rounds around 4:00 PM, with the top couple of teams possibly playing another match or two after that. In order to provide the best experience and maximum playing time to all participants and to keep scheduling predictable, all teams are expected to return from lunch to play all of their scheduled matches. Note that this is a change in expectations from previous years. Please be sure you understand these expectations and the time frame before registering.

For lunch there are a number of different restaurants within walking distance or a short drive off Armour Road (Wendy’s, Dairy Queen, Subway, McDonalds, Burger King, Pizza, Hut, Quik Trip, and Sonic).

To register, please use this registration form: ... rm?c=0&w=1

Note that you are not considered officially registered until you receive an email from us that your spots in the field are confirmed.
