Burlington Spring MS Tournament (CANCELED)

Post by kcommo »

The Burlington High School Scholars' Bowl team is proud to announce it will be holding its fifth annual first-semester middle school competition on April 4th on the BHS campus. The tournament is open to all students in grades 8 and lower with the aim of introducing them to our fun, competitive extra-curricular activity.

Matches will be played on the SCOP middle school set produced by the Scholastic Community Outreach Program in Illinois, following a tossup-and-bounceback-bonus format.

While we encourage schools to register teams of four for this event, we will also welcome individual registrations. We will do our best to pair single students together so that all participants get the opportunity to play.

The entry fee is $15 per student or $50 for a team of four, and there is no limit the number of teams a school may enter (though the $50 fee applies for each team). We will also offer a $5 discount for every working lockout buzzer system a school can bring, down to a minimum fee of $35 per team or $10 for an individual. Please note that individuals may choose to play as solo teams, but if so, the minimum team fee of $35 still applies.

Our competition will be held in C Building at BHS, with registration taking place in Room C102 from 9:15 to 9:45 am. Matches will begin at 10 am, and we hope to be concluded by 3:30 pm.

A lunch break will be included in the schedule and the BHS team will be selling pizza at a price of $5 for two slices and a bottle of water. Students are also free to bring their own lunches.

To register, email me at kcommo (at) scholarsbowl (dot) org and include a contact email address and phone number, the number of students and/or teams you wish to register, and whether or not those students will be participating in our pizza order.

I believe this should be posted in the Middle School board instead: viewforum.php?f=46

My apologies for posting this in the wrong place. That said, this event is now canceled out of an abundance of health concern.

If the situation improves going forward, we will try to reschedule.
