Houston Fall HS 10/28

Post by Mr. Pounds »

The Houston Fall Tournament will be on Saturday October 28th this year. We will be using NAQT Question set IS-224. This packet is being used in multiple tournaments, but nothing geographically close to Houston. The first round will start at 9:00 (or slightly earlier if possible) and consist of a minimum of eight rounds of 20-20 format (20 tossups and up to 20 three part bonuses) with rebounding bonuses and powers, but no negs. I will start the tournament limit at 24 and see how staffing goes from there. Traditionally we do a Competitive and Standard division for this tournament, but that will be determined as we get closer after seeing the lineup. We will do awards for the top two teams in each division and the top 10 individuals in each division as well. If you are interested in joining the tournament, please email me at jpounds@houston.k12.mo.us with the following information:
1. How many teams
2. How many moderators
3. How many buzzers
4. How many scorekeepers


The fee structure is as follows:
First team from a school: $75
Each subsequent team: $70
Scorekeeper discount: $5 per scorekeeper as needed
Moderator discount: $15 per moderator as needed (moderators must be approved by the tournament director)
Buzzer discount: $5 per fully functioning system
Maximum discount:$25
