CIS Middle School Autumn Invitational, October 20, 2018

Post by Lisa McClary » Thu Aug 30, 2018 5:14 pm

Hello coaches,

I am pleased to announce that Columbia Independent School will be hosting its first-ever middle school academic bowl tournament on Saturday, October 20, 2018. We will be mirroring Ohio’s Northmont Middle School Invitational; the question set is called NMMS 2. Each game consists of twenty tossups and up to twenty three-part, thirty point rebounding bonuses. There will be powers, but no negs. The field will be capped at 24 teams, and registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.

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 eight 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 Lisa McClary (mcclaryl@cislions.org) with the number of teams, buzzer systems, and scorekeepers/moderators that you plan to bring.

Please don't hesitate to email with any questions you may have, and I look forward to receiving your registrations. See you in October!

Thank you,

Lisa McClary
Tournament Director
