Dunbar Bulldog Tourney (MG/JV) 10/26/19

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding the 2019 Dunbar Bulldog Tournament on Saturday, October 26th. As with previous years, we will be hosting a middle school tournament and a parallel high school JV tournament (9th & 10th ONLY). We will be using NAQT MS-31 for the middle school division and NAQT 189-A for the JV division, and we will once again be following NAQT-style rules. We will also be continuing our tradition of themed worksheets, which will be completed at half-time by each team for each round. We are planning on having registration begin at 8:30, starting round 1 at 9, and hope to end around 4pm.
Registration will be $70 per quizbowl team and $40 per FPS team with a $5 buzzer discount. Lunch will be available at Dunbar for $5 per person, and will include two slices of pizza, a cookie, and a drink.

2019 SLMS Cardinal Classic (11/23/19)

When?
Saturday, November 23rd, 2019

Where?
South Laurel Middle School in London, KY – just 2 miles off of I-75

Who can compete?
Our tournament features two divisions – an Open Division and a Sixth-Grade Division.  The Open Division is made up of teams of any combination of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.  The Sixth-Grade division is open only to sixth graders.  Sixth grade students who compete in the Open Division cannot compete in the Sixth-Grade Division.

How much does it cost?
Open Division – $60 per team (a school can enter a second team for $50)

Sixth-Grade Division – $60 per team (limit one per school)

Written Assessment
The day will begin with one written assessment window.  The top ten students in each subject (M, SC, SS, LA, AH) will be recognized at the awards ceremony in the auditorium.  There will be separate assessments for the open division and for the sixth-grade division.

Quick Recall
Each team in both divisions will play a MINIMUM of six (but probably eight) rounds of quick recall.  Each team is required to bring TWO officials, one of whom can serve as a moderator and/or judge.  High school students are permitted to serve as scorekeepers, buzzer operators, and moderators.  A $15 discount is offered for schools who bring a third moderator/judge.  The tournament will follow KAAC quick recall format.  Teams will take part in pool play in the morning and those results will be used to seed new pools in the afternoon.  This will allow all teams a chance for success throughout the day.  Afternoon pool play will be used to place 4 teams into the championship and 3rd place matches.

Why should I bring my team?
Our tournament is perfectly timed to provide good competition for your sixth-graders just before Sixth Grade Showcase.  It’s also a great opportunity to provide valuable competition for your team as the academic leagues wind down and focus turns to Governor’s Cup.

Our 2018 tournament featured the eventual quick recall state champions, the eventual state fourth place quick recall team, a state quarterfinalist, and two more teams who advanced to the “Smart 16” at the state finals.  Our 6th Grade division featured four teams who went on to become sectional champs and 3 teams that would finish as sectional runners-up.
