This is our first announcement for the CENTENNIAL TOURNAMENT in Ellicott City, Maryland to be held on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 8:30 AM (one day after the SATs).

For our 13th annual tournament, we will be using NAQT IS-171A set. ​​​​​​This question set is an INTRODUCTORY set written to accommodate new players, so this tournament will be ideal for teams new to quiz bowl or new members of established teams. These questions can also help to hone rapid buzzing skills for more experienced teams and players.

As we did last year we will group the MIDDLE SCHOOL teams into their own bracket or parallel competition! Elementary Teams are welcome to participate and we may have a separate division for them if enough elementary school teams sign up!

LAST YEAR, 36 middle school and elementary school teams signed up and we rurned away late requestors.
Like last year, we are expecting all teams to stay for the rounds after lunch, and we will require reregistration at lunch to verify afternoon participation.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m., and we will provide our traditional breakfast banquet. For those teams wishing to stay on sitefor lunch, pizza will be sold at registration.

We will have a coaches/parents' round during lunch with fossils/minerals as prizes, the proceeds of which will be donated to the Howard County Special Olympics.

The cost for teams participating in the tournament is $75 for the first team and $70 for each extra team from the same school. Teams can bring a working buzzer for a $10 discount (but only one buzzer set per team entered).


However, for questions (not registration), e-mail [email protected]. Feel free to share this announcement with other teams that might be interested in attending. Please note the new email address. We are no longer using [email protected]
