Eureka Kickoff Tournament (10/15/2016)

Post by 1992 in spaceflight » Tue Jul 05, 2016 6:22 pm

I'm posting this announcement on behalf of Michael McDonald, the coach at Eureka High School.

Hello everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that Eureka will be hosting a season-opening tournament on October 15, 2015. We will be using NAQT's IS 158 set, which will also be used at a tournament happening at Hallsville in October, so you will be unable to attend this tournament if you are attending Hallsville's Fall tournament.

Fee Structure
Base Fee: $65 for 1st team, $60 per subsequent team
Moderator Discount: $25 per qualified moderator
Working Buzzer Discount: $5 per system (must work for 2 teams of 4 players each)
Distance Discount: $5 per 100 miles (one-way, as determined by Google Maps)

This tournament will initially be capped at 18 teams, and we will do our best to expand depending on interest and staffer availability. I will email details about the structure of the tournament closer to the day of.

Registration
Please use the following link to register!

I look forward to seeing everybody on October 15th!

There are 6 spots left in the field, so fill out the form if you want a chance to play in this tournament! We can expand depending on staff and team interest.

IS 158 is also being used at tournaments at Clever in November and Smithville (a Kansas City-area school) in January, so you cannot attend this tournament and attend those other tournaments.

There's one spot left in the field before we hit the original field cap. Register if you want that spot!

Other tournaments using this set in Missouri include Clever's tournament on November 19th and Smithville's tournament on January 21st, so remember that you can't attend those tournaments if you attend this tournament.

The initial field cap has been reached, and Lutheran-St. Charles has the first two spots on the waitlist. We're still looking at expanding the field, so fill out the form if you're interested in attending!

Eureka has been given platinum certification by PACE, which means that the top 25% of the field will qualify for the 2017 NSC, which will be at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare from June 10-11, 2017.
