The North High School Quizbowl team would like to invite your team(s) to the second annual OAC Fall Qualifier Tournament, to be held on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at North High School in Lake County (Eastlake), Ohio.

The tournament will consist of 8-team (or 6-team if that works out better number-wise) round-robin brackets, with each bracket winner qualifying for the OAC regional tournament and taking home a small award. There will be no JV brackets, but JV and younger teams are encouraged to play the set to get better. There is a tentative field cap of 32 teams. I’m expecting to have registration from 8-8:30, with a meeting at 8:45 and play beginning at 9. Break for lunch (off-site) at noon, back by one and then finish up by 3. That’s the best-case scenario schedule. I will provide info on various places to eat locally (there are tons) and also numbers for local pizza places if teams would rather order pizza instead. Last year, we were done right around 3:15pm, so I'm expecting for things to run smoothly once again.

The questions will be mostly written by myself and Tom Moore, with contributions from other former players and current college players. Just like last year, I am sure this will be one of the best OAC sets produced this year. Additionally, the tossups in each category round and all final round questions are 4-5 lines and pyramidal.

$70 for first team
$60 for second team
$50 for any additional teams
-$5 discount for each buzzer system

The cost includes an electronic copy of the question set to be emailed out once all mirrors are complete.

EACH TEAM IS REQUIRED TO BRING AN EXPERIENCED READER FOR THE TOURNAMENT. If you do not provide a reader, the coach WILL be expected to read.

Additionally, former OAC regional/state writer and former OAC committee member Michael Bindis and I have been writing OAC rounds for various leagues around Ohio since 2004. I am offering the yearly sets we've written for very low cost for each set. The prices are way marked down due to the fact I know some questions will be out of date and there are repeats in each set, just not in proximity to one another. They will be immediately sent out in a .zip file upon order.

The years we have available:
2006-07 (16 rounds) - $10
2007-08 (25 rounds) - $20
2008-09 (75 rounds) - $50
2009-10 (85 rounds) - $60
2010-11 (15 rounds) - $10
2011-12 (28 rounds) - $20
2012-13 (62 rounds) - $40
2013-14 (60 rounds) - $40
2014-15 (60 rounds) - $40
2015-16 (60 rounds) - $40
2016-17 (60 rounds) - $40

**There will be repeated answer lines in any given year / across years**
**Feel free to purchase sets from more than one year if you would like**

All checks should be made out to:

North High School (please put "quizbowl" in the memo line)

and mailed to:
Bob Kilner
c/o North High School

Eastlake, OH 44095

If you are going to pay the day of the tournament -- please let me know.

Please email me at robert.kilner at weschools dot org to register. Include in your email the number of teams, number of buzzers and name(s) of experienced readers. (If you can bring more than 1, that would be GREAT)

I am also seeking mirrors for the set. I'm trying to find a mirror in each part of the state. The mirror fee is $10 per team in attendance, which is far lower than any other mirror fees you will find out there. Please email if you're interested in mirroring the tournament.

We look forward to seeing you on the shores of Lake Erie in Eastlake in October -- please email me to register or with questions.
