Truman Bowl

Post by JMAC the Chef »

Hello,

I am proud to announce that Truman State will be hosting a high-school tournament for March 10, 2012. The price will be $60 for the first team and $55 for subsequent teams. There will be discounts for buzzers and staff, as well as travel distance but those have not been determined at this time. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me Jared McNett at [email protected] Thank you all very much and we luck forward to seeing you in Kirksville on March 10.

We are now using an A-set for this tournament, due to concerns about the previous set.

EDIT: Once NAQT confirms this, we'll be using IS-114A.

Jared has informed me that we have received MSHSAA certification for the tournament. If any teams were waiting for this, they should be good to register.

Fatima High School won a one-game playoff with Kirksville A (who only had one A-team member at the tournament). Stats can be found here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournament ... all_games/.
