BrainBusters Fall V tentative info (Ithaca HS, 11/19/16)

Brainbusters Fall V will be held on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at Ithaca HS in Ithaca, NY. We will be using a NAQT IS set to be determined that will be different from the one used at Delaware Valley's Tri-State Tussle on October 15 (since we expect significant overlap between the fields), and hopefully that used at the Lehigh Valley tournament in late October (I do not yet know whether LVA is using a NAQT IS or A set, or mirroring a housewrite), so that teams should be able to, and are encouraged to, compete in all 3 tournaments. The field size will initially be set at last year's tournament size of 36 teams, with the right being reserved to increase the field to up to 48 teams depending on interest and buzzer and staffer availability. The fees will be about the same as last year's ($80 per team, $10 discount per buzzer or staffer, $10 discount for each team from a school that has never played BB Fall before).

The official tournament announcement will be posted after the start of school in September. If you're interested in competing or would like to pre-register, contact me at scottblish at gmail dot com.
