LAMP Invitational 2017 HS & MS

Post by katewils »

The LAMP Scholars Bowl team will host our annual LAMP Invitational Tournament on Saturday, January 14th, at LAMP High School. This tournament will be for teams made up of students in grades 5-8 and 9 – 12, but all students on a team must be from the same school (contact me if there’s an issue). Multiple teams are welcome. We will have JV (5th and 6th for MS, 9th and 10th for HS) divisions if we have enough JV teams register. Registration will begin at 8AM, and we hope to start Round 1 by 8:45. Lunch will be off campus again this year, most likely after Round 5. There are plenty of options nearby. The entire tournament should be over by 4PM. We plan to play round robin within pools/divisions, with the top two or three teams from each advancing to the playoff rounds. The high school questions will be provided by NAQT, and the middle school questions are written by my students. Rounds will follow current ASCA format of 2 periods of 10 toss-ups and 2-part bonuses, divided by a period with a 20-question worksheet (written in-house). We should play five to seven preliminary rounds, but this depends on the number of teams registered. The registration fee is $60.00 for the first team, $50 for additional teams, and is non-refundable. You may receive a $5.00 discount per team for bringing a set of working buzzers, with a maximum of 2 buzzer discounts per school. (If payment is a problem, please call or email me and we’ll see what we can work out.) At the end of the preliminary rounds, each school will receive a copy of the questions used in those rounds.

The registration deadline (by GoogleForm, email, or fax, please) is MONDAY, January 9th. Further information regarding directions and the lunch options will be sent to you at the beginning of January. You may mail your check any time before the tournament or bring it with you. If you wish to mail your check, please note our updated address. All funds raised support the LAMP Scholars Bowl Team. We hope you can join us for the competition!
