Detroit Catholic Central in Novi is hosting History Bowl and History Bee tournaments on Saturday, March 31 at its campus at 27225 Wixom Road, Novi, MI 48374. These are the only tournaments in Michigan this year, so this would the best opportunity for Michigan teams to experience these great new tournaments.
History Bowl is a team competition much like your regular quiz bowl competition where teams of four compete against other teams. You can get more information about the format of this tournament at http://www.historybowl.com
History Bee is an individual competition, so even if you can't bring your team, maybe some of your students would be interested in competing individually! You can get more information about the format of this individual competition at http://www.historybee.com/
Both the Bowl and Bee will consist of a varsity division and a junior varsity division. We will be using set B for this tournament.
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 $75 per team, with a discount of $5 available if you bring a buzzer system. Registration for the History Bee is $15 dollars per person.
