Culver Academies are proud to announce our 2012 High School History Bee and Bowl Tournaments, using the NHBB B Set! The tournaments will be held on February 11, 2012, and we hope your school will be able to send teams and/or individuals to compete in our tournaments!

Field size is limited to a total of 48 teams . All teams will be guaranteed five preliminary matches. The Registration Fee for the Bowl is $50 per team, with a discount of $5 available if you bring a buzzer system, a $10 discount/team if your school is more than 150 mi from Culver, and a $20 discount per team if your school is more than 300 miles from Culver. Cost per individual for the Bee is $10.

To guarantee your spots, please post here or e-mail Phil Blessman at blessmp [at] culver [dot] org by January 29, 2012, indicating the number of varsity and/or Frosh/Soph teams (and individuals) you would like to bring. We look forward to welcoming you to Culver Academies for our History Bee and Bowl tournaments! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time!

P.S.: We have substantial housing available at the campus motel at a cost of $20 per two-person room. Lunch in our dining hall is pretty good, AYCE, and only $5 per person. Breakfast and dinner are also available to teams staying overnight at a cost of $4 and $6 per person respectively.

St. Joseph of South Bend has signed up 2 teams for this. A few teams in Western Michigan have also expressed interest, and we hope to get some other Indiana schools to come as well. Ohio, Kentucky, and Illinois schools are also more than welcome to come.

Three weeks out to this event, so I thought I'd give this a bump. David mentioned several schools who are interested, so I encourage them (and anybody else) to sign up!
