Comet Winter Clash VI
Solon High School will be hosting our annual four event, two day tournament on February 18-19 2017. We have renamed the event the Comet Winter Clash, but the basics (with one big change re: Middle School) remain the same!

Saturday February 18th will be our 14th annual NAQT tournament, run on Invitational Series 164. We will guarantee 10 matches for Varsity teams. Standard NAQT scoring, untimed 20 question matches. We will field a JV division if warranted.

After Saturday’s finals, we will play a free 3-5 round trash tournament, open to players, coaches, parents, adults, etc. We are house-writing this for 2017!

IMPORTANT CHANGE: Saturday will also be the date of the Middle School event run on NAQT MS 20. This event has been run on Sundays in years past, but this will be a Saturday event for 2017. 8 matches guaranteed.

Sunday February 19th will be our PACE format tournament, run on Harvard Fall Tournament 2016. We will guarantee 10 matches for Varsity teams. PACE scoring: 10 point tossups, 20 point powers, bonus bouncebacks, no negs

Fee Structure:
1st Team Saturday: $70.00
2nd Team Saturday: $60.00
Additional teams: $50.00
Saturday Buzzer Discount: $5.00 each, 2 max per team
Saturday Experienced Reader Discount: $10.00 each (please supply reader’s name; this discount is subject to approval)
1st time NAQT Discount: $25.00 (confirmed at naqt.com)
Saturday MS: $50.00
Saturday MS: $5.00 buzzer, $5.00 reader (because of lower fee structure)
Sunday HFT: $50.00
Sunday Buzzer Discount: $5.00 each, 2 max
Sunday Reader Discount: $5.00 each

Field Update is current. Plenty of spots still available, especially for Saturday's Middle School event!

Saturday evening trash again house-written this year.

It is. He contacted me this summer with a thought of coming stateside. As far as I know it's still under consideration.

We're going to temporarily cap the field at 24 Varsity/4 JV pending reader availability. As of now we've got 16 confirmed for Varsity, 2 for JV, and around 9 interested. Any new registrations will probably go on the waiting list.

If registration is still open, Scioto would like to play at both the Saturday and Sunday tournaments. We can provide a reader for Saturday.

We are going to hard cap the Saturday HS field at 30 V. Right now Strongsville has interest in 1-2 spots. If they take only one, then we will have one spot left.

If anyone is interested in playing the Wordsworth Memorial Literature Tournament at this tournament, go ahead and post below so I can gauge interest. More info about the set for anyone who has not seen the original announcement: http://ohioqbforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=332. If you'd like to play but are not interested in attending our Spring Tournament, this will most likely be the only chance to do so. Contingent on enough people signing up to play, it will start directly after HFT on Sunday. Thanks!
