This is one of the few tournaments where your team can participate in a Missouri format competition. We continue to use the Missouri format since that is what is required in District and State completion.

This tournament will consist of a minimum of eight games for all teams in a modified NAQT/national format:
The initial field cap for this tournament is twelve teams. Each team will be guaranteed eight games regardless of performance; that number may rise depending on the number of attending teams. Games will consist of 20 tossups and up to 20 three part 30-point, rebounding bonuses. 15 point powers and 5 point negs will be used on tossups. Math calculation tossups will not be read. This tournament will be a qualifier for NAQT's High School National Championship Tournament; the top 15% of the field will qualify.

Fort Osage High School is pleased to announce the 2nd annual Three Trails Tournament to be held at Fort Osage High School on November 15, 2014. This tournament will be run in the twenty tossup/bonus format. Matches will consist of 20 tossups with 3 part rebounding bonuses worth up to thirty points. We will be using the highly regarded BELLOCO set (a link to the question information is here: http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=109&t=14763). The set is not powermarked, and we will not have “negs” either.
Games will consist of 20 tossups with three-part, non-rebounding bonuses. The exact schedule for the tournament will depend on the final field size, but teams should expect to be divided into preliminary pools that will each play a round robin, followed by a rebracketing into championship and consolation pools. If the field fills, all teams should expect to play 10 games, ending around 4:00, with any necessary finals and tiebreakers following.
Oakville Senior High School will be hosting a mirror of GSAC, a housewritten tournament produced by Maggie Walker Governor's School (VA), on March 28, 2015.

The set is once again a mirror of Yale's BHSAT event. We are looking forward to a tournament that will (hopefully) be bigger and better than ever!
Each round will consist of 20 tossup questions with 20 3-part bonuses should a team answer a tossup correctly. Bonuses will rebound.
Since this is a regular difficulty question set, there will be no eligibility restrictions as there were for last year's tournament. Also, a single team can have no more than six players. If you have more than six players, please do not hesitate to sign up a second or even third team!
