Starting a new team in the west

Postby cwt421 » Mon Jan 02, 2017 7:04 pm

I'm currently a freshman in college and I'm trying to create a quizbowl team at my college in Oregon. I did quizbowl back in high school all four years when I lived on the east coast, but I know the quizbowl scene isn't as big in the west as it is in the east. Does anyone know much about the quiz bowl scene in states like Oregon, Washington, California, etc? Also, any advice on how to start a new team in general? Thanks!

Welcome to the Pacific Northwest! As you mentioned, the Pacific Northwest circuit is currently quite small. There are however teams at UWash, Boise and the University of Oregon. Due to the circuit's small size only 1 or 2 in person tournaments are run each term, typically by UWash. In fact, a mirror of Terrapin is being held there this weekend. The 2 or 3 Skype tournaments that are run each year make up the rest of the Pacific Northwest schedule.

Which university do you go to? If it is UO, then you should private message me about playing for the UO team. If you go elsewhere, then you should still contact me about possibly carpooling to UWash and California tournaments.
