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.

FEES:
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).
If your team has not played an OLHS tournament before then you automatically qualify for the minimum entry fee of $40.
MINIMUM Fee: $40

To register http://goo.gl/forms/8z5b9xKB4X or for more information, please email cortney_bird [AT] olsd [DOT] us. I hope to see you in Powell in November 2016!

To donate directly to Matt's Buzzer see: http://www.mattsbuzzers.com/
For more information on the PA Novice set see: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... 09&t=18820
The Pennsylvania Novice set writers will be donating a portion of the mirror fee to Matt's Buzzer's.
Sponsors are the Ohio Quiz Bowl Alliance, Pennsylvania Novice set writers, Decker Electrionics (Buzzer repair in Cbus), Big & Little Craft Doughnuts (Powell), Brooklyn Pizza and El Campo Empanadas

We will be doing food a la cart from local gourmet outlets.

Morning Big & Little's Craft Donuts $2 -$2.50 each

So will Scioto, Liberty, St. Charles, Tipp and Miami Valley all be playing their younger players then?

Most of my kids will be working it and I will send out a team of underclassmen. St. Charles A/B fit the mold. That is the stated goal. Pending names on registrations I will approach coaches about certain names ie Clark etc. I have had these kids read MS.

Ok great. I just found it odd that if it were advertised as a novice tournament, that all these powerhouses would be bringing their A teams to play. Thanks for the clarification.

Last year a 3 teams dropped at the last minute and Koh from Scioto was reading MS then I had him play solo vs. a team I put together with two good kids just to give him some competition.

For what it's worth, right now my plan is to have our high school first team play at Little Miami's OAC event on 11/19 and have our other freshmen and sophomores come to Liberty.

Clark will be reading or playing with OSU, Bellas is sending underclassmen so I think that most people have read the post correctly.

I know that Tipp and Northmont are coming to my tournament at Little Miami on that date, and I'm assuming that they will be bringing their top teams

Understood. Cortney clarified it perfectly. I just didn't want to see anyone freaking out about bringing their younger kids only to have to play some powerhouse team. I figured that was the case, but I wanted to ask to be sure.

Same arrangement for Tipp. Although I appreciate still being considered a "powerhouse" and lumped in with those other strong schools, we are definitely second fiddle this year in the Miami Valley. :)
