Patriot Academic Tournament IV (01/27/2024)

Post by Mickey0R0urke »

Dear Coaches,

On behalf of the academic team of Parkway South High School, my assistant coach Allison MacDonald, and our tournament assistants Jacob O'Rourke & Sean Phillips, I, Scott Degitz-Fries, am pleased to announce the fourth annual Patriot Academic Tournament brought to you by Parkway South High School, a varsity level event to be held on Saturday, January 27, 2024. Parkway South HS is located at 801 Hanna Rd., Manchester, MO, 63021.

I will be serving as the Tournament Director for this event. We will be using IQBT’s Regular Season Set #4. This set is currently scheduled to be used at Nevada HS on March 23rd. We would love to see you at Parkway South for PAT IV!

The fee structure for the event is as follows:

-Flat $10 fee per team regardless of letter designation.
-Additional $70 for a first team and $60 for each subsequent team.
-$10 discount for each buzzer system
-$15 discount for providing each qualified moderator
-$10 discount for providing each scorekeeper.

The initial field cap will be 18 teams but we may be able to expand if we have enough interest and can find the staff. Please limit your rosters to no more than six players per roster. If you have more kids, don't hesitate to add another team.

Instead of emailing me, all registrations should be made using this form.
1st - 4th place teams will receive a plaque and the top 10 individuals in preliminary rounds will receive a medal.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on January 27th at Parkway South!

Sincerely,

Scott Degitz-Fries
Patriot Academic Tournament
brought to you by the Parkway South Scholar Bowl Team

I've updated the announcement to include some information from the Tournament Director, Parkway South coach Scott Degitz-Fries.

Since the previous three versions were online, we would like to emphasize that the tournament will be taking place in-person.
