Fort Osage Three Trails Tournament IV

Post by FortOsageScholarBowl » Fri Sep 30, 2016 9:14 am

Fort Osage High School is pleased to announce the 4th annual Three Trails Tournament will be held on November 19th, 2016. This tournament will use the WHAQ set (a link to the question information is here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... 09&t=18660) which will also be used on December 3 at Washington HS and on Feb. 25th at Hickman HS. Please ensure that you do not accept a bid to either of those tournaments if you plan to come to Fort Osage.

The WHAQ set has 15 point "powers" for those who are correct on an early buzz. Consequently, we WILL have "powers" and 5 point "negs" for those who buzz in early and are incorrect.

We will divide the field into preliminary pools that will each play a round robin in the morning, after which teams will be rebracketed into playoff and consolation pools for the afternoon. After the playoffs, the top 2 teams could play a one or two game championship final depending on playoff standings. All teams will be guaranteed approximately 9 matches throughout the day (based on a targeted 18 team field). Round 1 will begin by 9 AM, and we anticipate finishing the afternoon rounds around 4 PM, with the top couple of teams potentially playing one or two more matches after that (as described above). In order to provide the best experience and maximum playing time to all participants, teams are expected to play ALL of their scheduled matches. Please be sure that you fully understand the time frame before registering.

We will be limiting teams to a maximum of 6 players, so if you have more players, we encourage you to sign up more than one team. We are limiting the field to 18 teams at this time, but that number could change based on interest.

Fees:
Base fee (first team from each school): $65
Second or subsequent teams: $60
Travel discount (100 miles or more one way, based on Google Maps): -$10
Buzzer discount (must work for 8 players, limit 2 per school): -$5
Staffer discount (up to the discretion of tournament organizer): TBD
Minimum cost (if multiple above discounts occur): $40

If you have any questions, please e-mail jmalecki@fortosage.net

Hope to see you at the Fort in November!!

This tournament went off very well. We had a 3 way tie after 9 rounds, and the teams mutually agreed to break based on points. After that, Park Hill took 1st, NKC A took 2nd, and LS North A took 3rd. Stats are below!!

Thanks to Jeffrey Hill and Alex Smith from MOQBA. Thanks to St. Pius X, NKC, North Andrew and Lexington for providing staff. A huge thanks to all of my Varsity and JV kids, we keep getting better in hosting tournaments!!
