12/02 Mount Carmel Invitational

Mount Carmel Academy and the Louisiana Quiz Bowl Alliance would like to invite your team to the fourth annual Mount Carmel Invitational. The tournament will be held at Mount Carmel Academy in New Orleans, Louisiana on Saturday, December 2nd.

Teams will play a preliminary round-robin in the morning and playoff rounds in the afternoon. Plaques will be awarded to the first- and second-place varsity teams. A plaque will also be awarded to the top JV team (open to players in 10th grade and below). If there are enough JV teams, there will be a separate JV bracket. Individual trophies will be awarded to the top four individual scorers.

Payment may be made on the day of the tournament by check or cash. Checks may also be mailed in advance to Mount Carmel Academy, 7027 Milne Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70124. All checks should be made payable to “Mount Carmel Academy.” The base fee is $60 per team, and each school may register up to three teams. In order to encourage more teams to register, there is a limit of six players on a team (four playing at a time, plus two substitutes), and a $10 discount for the second and subsequent teams from the same school. There is a $5 discount for bringing a fully functional buzzer system with at least eight working buzzers (limit one discount per team). There is a $10 discount for bringing an experienced moderator (subject to the tournament director’s approval).
