The tournament will be a mirror of the NAQT IS-208 set produced by NAQT. At the time of this announcement, this set is also assigned to these other Missouri tournaments:
If you have attended or are planning to attend one of these tournaments or any other tournament using this NAQT set, your team is ineligible to participate in this tournament. Question set assignments are subject to change at any time; more information about the NAQT set and a complete list of tournaments using the set are available on their website.
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!
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), and five point "negs" (deductions for incorrect answers by the first team to answer before the entire question has been read). Bonuses will be rebounding.
The field will be capped at 24 teams, but if demand is high enough it may be expanded if staffing allows. Allow me to encourage any coaches or former players in helping us moderate. Some of the best and smoothest run tournaments are due to the experienced moderators, we’d appreciate all the help we can get with veterans in the chairs and it will also help keep your tournament fees lower!
Teams will be divided into preliminary pools that will each play a round robin in the morning, after which all teams will be re-bracketed 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 one begins by 9:00. We anticipate finishing the afternoon rounds around 4:30 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. If you feel like your team cannot commit to a full day of competition we would ask you to not register until you can confirm their full participation. Registration will be on a first come first serve basis.
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, QuikTrip, and Sonic).
