Hancock High School in St. Louis County will be hosting their annual fall tournament on December 5th. This is the 4th year for the tournament and we hope to attract 16 teams. Cost is $75 per team with discounts for providing buzzer /responder systems discounts of $5 for multiple teams, distance of an hour or more traveled, and MACA membership. The state format will be used and the cost includes a copy of the questions.
This tournament will operate on questions from NAQT, specifically set IS-92. The format will be similar to recent NAQT tournaments held elsewhere in Missouri—pyramidal questions, neg-5’s for incorrect early buzzes, 15 points instead of 10 for correct early answers, and no rebounding on bonuses.
The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance will host the third annual NAQT Missouri Qualifier on March 20, 2010 at the University of Missouri-Columbia. As MOQBA's flagship event, this tournament regularly features a diverse field of teams from throughout Missouri, recognizing the state's top teams for national tournament qualification and creating a championship atmosphere. Matt Chadbourne and Jeffrey Hill will serve as tournament directors of this official NAQT event, which will use untimed NAQT rules.
This tournament will use a modification of the standard Missouri format, in order to allow teams to play more games and face a wider variety of opponents. Each game will still have four quarters, and each quarter will contain eight tossups, for a total of thirty-two. Tossups answered correctly in the second and fourth quarters will be followed by bonuses as normal.
NOTE: This tournament was rescheduled from 1/30/2010 due to inclement weather.
Missouri State University will be hosting a varsity academic tournament on Saturday, February 20, 2010. This tournament will be a mirror of the Classic City Classic set written by the quiz bowl team at the University of Georgia, and games will consist of twenty tossups worth ten points each and bonuses worth thirty points each. Tentatively, the top two teams in the field will qualify for the PACE NSC. Each team will be guaranteed at least nine matches.
