2023 OMAR - April 1, Moberly High School; registration is open

Post by mobscholar »

Academic Coaches,

The members of Moberly High School Scholar Bowl welcome your high school team to join others from across the region at the eighth Outstate Missouri Academic Rendezvous (OMAR), scheduled for April 1st, 2023.

NAQT has assigned OMAR the IS-217 set. This set was previously played at Washington High School (WHIT). Please check your schedule to ensure you have not attended/do not plan to attend an event using this set. We are currently limiting the field to 18 teams; this may expand depending on staff availability. 2 teams from each school will initially be placed in the field. Additional teams will be placed on a waitlist and contacted should an opening occur. If enough interest exists, we may consider establishing separate divisions based on skill level and/or experience.

We anticipate OMAR serving as a qualifier for the NAQT Small School National Championship Tournament, NAQT High School National Championship Tournament, and PACE National Scholastic Championship.

Teams will play five morning rounds, break for lunch, then return for at least three afternoon games. This setup is subject to change, depending on the number of teams signed up. We plan to start the team meeting in our cafenasium at 8:30 a.m., with the first round set for 8:50 a.m. and afternoon rounds slated to begin at 1:30 p.m. We anticipate the last game ending around 4 p.m.

Fee structure is as follows, per school:
Each team: $70
Discount for traveling greater than 100 miles: $10
Discount for providing a competent scorekeeper: $10
Discount for providing a competent moderator: $15
Discount for providing a working buzzer system: $5
Discount for your middle school team previously competing at 2023 MYST (Feb 11, 2023): $10
Discounts may be multiplied but may not exceed $35 per team. All discounts are subject to the discretion of tournament officials.

To register for this tournament, please visit https://tinyurl.com/2023OMAR
Questions concerning the tournament may be directed to either Kathy Brandon at kathybrandon@moberlyspartans.org. Please include “2023 OMAR” in the subject line.

We look forward to seeing your teams compete at the 2023 OMAR on April 1st.
