You are cordially invited to our iteration of Give Thanks for Matt’s Buzzers Invitational. This invitational is targeted towards teams that are new to tossup/bonus as well as those who have received buzzer grants. This will be the OQBA’s first service project for the Quizbowl community. Teams that have received grants should attend to show support of the Matt’s Buzzers grants. There will be a buzzer system given away to the highest placing team that does not currently have a buzzer system. The initial field cap will be 24 teams, but I will try to open that up if there is interest and I can secure enough readers/score keepers. Teams are expected to bring a moderator/coach (that is why the price is cheap). This will be a tournament where coaches will read/scorekeep and let their students enjoy the competition. We will be using the Pennsylvania Novice set. We will have gourmet doughnuts for sale at breakfast. For lunch we will have Argentine empanadas and pizza by the slice. Payment can be made to OLHS In The Know and the address is 3584 Home Rd. Powell, Ohio 43065.
We will be running a MS tournament as well. They will be using the NAQT MS-20 set.
Teams will be broken into 4 preliminary brackets of 6 teams each and will play round robin. At the conclusion of morning play, teams will be re-bracketed into 6 brackets of 4 to play another round robin with similar teams, with the top 2 teams at the conclusion of afternoon play for the tournament championship if needed. Every team will be guaranteed 8 rounds.
Registration opens at 8:00 A.M. until 8:30 A.M. followed by a brief meeting for coaches and player. We expect to begin play promptly at 9:00 A.M.
Each Team: $50
BUZZER DISCOUNT: -$5 per buzzer system, limit one per team that you are bringing.
TRAVEL DISCOUNT: There is a $10 discount for teams traveling over 80 miles (our zip is 43065).
