Update: this has been postponed because Fallon was unable to reserve rooms for March 12th. --JTH

The Northern California Quiz Bowl Alliance and Fallon Middle School are pleased to announce that Fallon will host its first middle school quizbowl tournament on Sunday, March 12th, 2017.

Location: This tournament will take place at Fallon Middle School, 3601 Kohnen Way, Dublin, California.

Questions: We will be using NAQT Middle School Series #21. (For practice material similar to the questions we will use at the tournament, please consider the NAQT New Middle School Package.)

The top 15% of teams will qualify for the 2017 NAQT Middle School National Championship Tournament, to be held in Dallas, Texas on May 13-14, 2017.

Eligibility: All middle schools (public, private, charter, religious, homeschool, etc.) are eligible to play in this event. This tournament is open to any players who have not yet completed 8th grade, though the questions are targeted at 7th and 8th graders.

Schools are encouraged to enter multiple teams, but please note that players must play for the same team throughout the tournament.

Fees:

Base fee: $60 per team

-$10 second or subsequent team from the same school

-$10 working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)

-$20 experienced moderator

-$10 scorekeeper (We will hold a brief training session during check-in for those volunteers who have never kept score before.)

Payment will be taken at check-in on March 12th.

How to register: please contact the tournament director, Jeff Hoppes (jeff.hoppes@gmail.com), on or before Tuesday, March 7th, indicating how many teams, buzzers, and staff your school plans to bring.
