The Northern California Quiz Bowl Alliance is pleased to announce that the first Bay Area elementary school tournament will take place on Sunday, September 27, 2015.

Location: This tournament will take place at the Embasssy Suites Santa Clara, 2885 Lakeside Drive in Santa Clara.

Questions: We will be using the SAGES set produced by Alex Dzurick of the Missouri Quizbowl Alliance.

Qualifiers: This tournament will be excellent practice for upcoming middle school tournaments. Teams are encouraged to participate even though this tournament is not a qualifier for any national championships (because there is currently no national championship of elementary school quizbowl).

Eligibility: This tournament is open to any players who have not yet completed sixth grade. All schools with applicable grade/age levels (public, private, charter, religious, homeschool, etc.) are eligible to play in this event.

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


Base fee: $50 per team

$10 discount: second or subsequent team from the same school

$10 discount: per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)

$20 discount: per experienced moderator

$10 discount: per 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 September 27th. Please make checks out to "Jeff Hoppes."

How to register: please contact the tournament director, Jeff Hoppes ([email protected]), on or before Wednesday, September 23rd, indicating how many teams, buzzers, and staff your school plans to bring.
