Nov 12- Clever HS

Post by Reklaw »

Coaches,

Clever HS will be hosting its 8th annual Clever High School Invitational Scholar Bowl tournament on November 12, 2021. The tournament will be in the 20 Tossup/20 Bonus format and we will be utilizing Powers for early buzzing. We will NOT be using bouncebacks on bonus questions or negative points for wrong answers (negs). This tournament will be in-person, at Clever High School.

We will use question set IS-213 from National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT). This set is (at the time of posting) being used in Missouri by Sullivan HS on 11/19 and Smithville on 1/28. Please double check no other tournament you attend is using this set before entering. You can find free sample questions at http://www.naqt.com.

We are currently capping the field at 18 teams. The field can expand if there is more interest and more importantly staff. Last year we were able to accommodate 30 teams thanks to a wonder pool of staffers and helpers, and I would love to host that size or larger.

Prices are:
- $70 for the first team from a school, $65 for each additional team.
- Fully functional buzzer systems are a $5 discount (must work for 8 players, limit 2 discounts per team). Preference given to those whose systems require the moderator to reset buzzers.
- Providing an experienced moderator (reader) is a $15 discount. Please let us know about these well in advance. We reserve the right to refuse moderators.
-Providing an experienced scorekeeper is a $10 discount. Scorekeepers must be digitally proficient enough to work with a Google Sheets scorecard with limited training.
-$50 minimum per team.

Checkin will be at 8:30 and Matches will begin no later than 9:00 AM. There will be a lunch break around 12:00-12:30 PM. I’m looking for a group to help run my concession stand. In the past we have had Hamburgers or Chicken sandwiches and concessions throughout the day. I will have more information later. We hope to be done no later than 5:00PM (Last year we were done with Championship rounds (10 rounds) by 4:30pm)

Spots will be filled on a first come/first served basis. Rather than emailing me, please use this form to register. In an effort to get as many schools involved as we can, teams will be allowed 2 entries with all additional teams being put on the waiting list. “C” teams (and other letters) will be added to the lineup 2 weeks before the event.

Please understand that, until I confirm with you via email, your team(s) are not registered. I will create a waiting list if this tournament fills up. Those who can provide experienced staffers are likely to gain priority over those just bringing teams on the waiting list.

I plan on awarding trophy/plaques to the top 2 teams, and individual medals for the top 10 scorers of the morning sessions. Currently, this is scheduled at the High School off of Mo-14. Feel free to email me with any questions at walkers@cleverbluejays.org.

On a side note, if you are hosting a tournament we would gladly like information as we are looking to fill our season as well. If you are considering hosting, please feel free to ask me questions. If I don’t know the answer I have contacts who will.

School of the Osage would be interested in bringing 1 Team. We have a buzzer if it's needed.

I have your entry from the form. I will hopefully get to emailing those on the list by the end of the week. First week has been a bit nuts.

Tournament is currently awaiting MSHSAA Sanctioning. After that happens, we'll likely expand to 30. We currently have more interest, and may consider one more expansion after talks with admins about space available.

This tournament has expanded to 36 teams.

If you are wanting to attend but haven't signed up, please fill out the form. I will consider one last expansion to 42 if there is sufficient interest.
