Olmsted Falls High School will be hosting the annual Battle Buzz at Olmsted Falls High School. The tournament will be on Saturday, February 11th.

We will be using NAQT format and we will be playing an IS-162 set and observe NAQT rules. However, rounds will not be timed. We will have a bracket for already qualified for HSNCT Teams and a bracket for non-qualified teams as long as we have enough teams enter that have already qualified for HSNCT to form a bracket. Please specify on your registration which bracket you would like your teams to participate in. With sufficient interest, we will have a JV division as well. There will be a cap of 32-36 teams for this tournament. The tournament will consist of preliminary rounds of round robins between small groups of teams, which will then be re-bracketed into groups of similar performance in the preliminary rounds. We will do everything we can to guarantee each team at least seven games of play. The brackets will have at least 6 teams each, with the winner of each bracket qualifying for OAC Regionals. Each match will consist of 20 tossups and 20 bonuses. Teams may be made up of up to six players. Four players may play at a time for a team. Teams with less than four players are allowed. Once a player is assigned to a team’s roster at the start of the tournament, those players cannot be moved between teams. JV matches will consist of 16 tossups and 16 bonuses.

Registration will be between 8:00 – 8:30 and we will plan on having a coaches meeting at approximately 8:45. We would like to start Round 1 by 9:00 am and lunch will be approximately after Round 4 or 5, depending on how quickly everything is going. If you enter 2 teams, you must bring a reader. If you bring 3 or more teams, you must have 2 readers.

We will have lunch for sale in the cafeteria (Chick-fil-A, pop, chips, and candy) for $5 per meal. Teams can bring their own food if they’d like but we will most likely not have time to leave for lunch and there’s not any closes close to our school anyways!

Email registrations to: Erin Stanton @ estanton@ofcs.net. We hope to see you in Olmsted Falls!

I was posting that on behalf of Erin - I have no idea what the field looks like except that her numbers are way down compared to past years.

Erin emailed me today about an SQBS problem she was having and she said there were 3 varsity brackets and 1 JV bracket... I'm going to assume the varsity brackets at 6 and the JV bracket is 8 because she said something about rebracketing all the 1s-2s, 3s-4s and 5s-6s for the afternoon.
