Strafford Winter Invitational- January 21, 2023

Post by micheler@straffordschools.net »

Strafford High School will host a Varsity and Middle School tournament open to schools in Missouri. The tournament will be in the 20 Tossup/20 Bonus format and we will be utilizing powers for early buzzing. We will be using bouncebacks on bonus questions but no negative points (negs) for incorrect answers. This tournament will be in-person, at Strafford High School.

We will use question set IS-218A from National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT). Please double check no other tournament you attend is using this set before entering.

The varsity field will be capped at 18 teams, which will compete in one of three pools in the morning to seed positions for the afternoon.
The middle school field will be capped at 10 teams, playing in a round robin format for the entire tournament.

Prices are:
- $70 for each team from a school
- Fully functional buzzer systems are a $5 discount (must work for 8 players, limit 2 discounts per team).
- Providing an experienced moderator (reader) is a $10 discount.
- Providing an experienced scorekeeper is a $5 discount.
-$50 minimum per team.

Check-in will be at 8:30AM and matches will begin no later than 9:00 AM. There will be a lunch break around 12:00 PM. The intent is to finish no later than 5:00PM to distribute awards.

In an effort to open the tournament to a cross-section of teams, initial registrations will be allowed one team. As the date gets near, open spots will be filled with teams that can send more than one.

This information was not confirmed at the time of the original posting.

The question set for Middle School will be MAKEMAKE from Conor Thompson and his writers. This is a mirrored set, so if you plan to bring your team to the Strafford tournament, you cannot attend any other contests where this set will be in use.
