The Miami Valley School quiz bowl team cordially invites you to the Miami Valley School Spring Invitational on March 9, 2019, replacing the cancelled Groundhog Day Invitational. This is a regular-difficulty high school tournament using the RMBAT question set written by Richard Montgomery and Montgomery Blair High Schools. Please note that this set was used for the Uber division at Olentangy Berlin's SHATEYAHRONYA tournament on January 12.

The initial field cap for this tournament will be 12 teams, with a potential field expansion to 18 teams if enough rooms can be secured. Due to the small field size, we will initially limit the number of teams per school to 2. If teams wish to register C teams and beyond, they will be placed on a waitlist.

Assuming a full field, teams will be grouped into initial brackets of six and play a round robin within their bracket. After lunch, we will re-bracket teams for afternoon rounds. During afternoon rounds, teams will be placed against other teams with similar records. With a full field, all teams will play at least ten games.

Payment can be made to The Miami Valley School (put "Quiz Bowl" in the memo). Our address is 5151 Denise Dr, Dayton, OH 45429. You may also bring cash or check to the tournament site.

Registration will be from 8:00 A.M. until 8:30 A.M., followed by a brief meeting for coaches and players. We expect to begin play promptly at 9:00 A.M.

FEES:
First Team: $60
Each Additional Team: $50
BUZZER DISCOUNT: -$5 per buzzer system, limit two per team that you are bringing.
READER DISCOUNT: -$10 for a competent moderator, limit two per team that you are bringing.
TRAVEL DISCOUNT: There is a $10 discount for teams traveling over 100 miles one way (our zip code is 45429).
MINIMUM Fee: $35

If your program has not played a pyramidal tossup-bonus quiz bowl tournament in the last three years, your team(s) will automatically qualify for the minimum fee of $35. Please ask if you have questions regarding this discount.

For lunch, we will offer cheese and pepperoni pizza for $10/pie. There is a dearth of convenient dining options around MVS, so please plan on staying on-site.

To register or for more information contact Tyler Benedict: tyler DOT benedict AT mvschool DOT com. We hope to see you in Dayton in March!
