Although I have no idea what kind of turn-out to expect at it, the GA Qualifier for the new National History Bee and Bowl is on March 5th at Ola High School in McDonough, GA.

Thanks for the info. I'll ask the question in reverse, then: what weekends are currently available in March and April for TN/GA/AL teams?

Just curious if there were any updates on the date for this tournament. As far as our team is concerned, we're pretty flexible with dates and very interested in this tourney.
What sets will be played?

Is registration information going to be posted soon? Gibbs High School from Knox County is interested in returning to this event after missing a few years. I have some field trip paperwork to fill out and the principal wants to know the per-team registration cost.

Thanks for your patience. We can now confirm that this year’s Dennis Haskins Open will use HSAPQ set #17. Here are full details for the tournament:

UT-Chattanooga’s 14th annual Dennis Haskins Open High School Quizbowl will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2011. Named in honor of the actor and UTC alumnus best known as Principal Belding on Saved by the Bell, this will be a one-day team academic quizbowl competition in Chattanooga, TN. The field is open to high school and middle school teams.

We are tentatively capping the field at 32 teams. Division I (varsity) is open to teams with players from all grades. Division II (JV) is open to teams where all players are in grades 6-10. To ensure that you have space reserved, we recommend that you e-mail [email protected] or call me at (423) 535-7147 at your earliest convenience with the number of teams your school expects to bring. Once the field is officially full, we will start a waiting list.

Also, in order to bring more than two teams from the same school, you are strongly encouraged to provide at least one experienced full-time official. This will allow us to expand the field to accommodate the extra teams while still allowing room for more schools.

FORMAT: This will be an untimed tournament with 20 tossups and bonuses per round, with no bounceback on bonuses. Questions will cover a variety of academic disciplines, with a little popular culture and general knowledge thrown in. The field will be split into brackets for a round robin, followed by playoffs for each division. During playoffs, non-playoff teams will have the option of playing consolation rounds.

ELIGIBILITY: Students in grades 6-12 are eligible. Those in grades 11-12 are eligible to play in Division I (varsity) only. Students in grades 6-10 are eligible to play in either Division I or Division II, although we strongly recommend that players in grades 6-8 play on Division II teams only. Separate trophies will be awarded for teams in Division II (teams composed entirely of players in grades 6 -10.)

Pre-registration and prepayment are not required -- as long as we know how many teams you’ll bring, and for which division(s). Rosters may be changed at any time before the tournament starts -- but once it does, a player may not switch from team to team.

ACCOMMODATIONS: With changes on the downtown hotel scene, we don’t currently have any standing room discounts. If you are planning an overnight stay and would like some help, please contact us at [email protected] and we’ll see what we can arrange.
If you need more information, I can be reached on my cell phone (423-504-8255), at my office (423-535-7147), or by e-mail at [email protected] . We hope to see you March 5!
--- Charlie Steinhice, UTC A.T.A. Coach

Directions to Grote Hall: Come towards downtown Chattanooga on I-24. Take the freeway splitoff labeled US 27 North – Downtown Chattanooga. Follow US 27 North to Exit 1A, 4th St. (Don’t worry about which way to turn on 4th St. – it only goes one way.) Follow 4th St. about ½ mile till you see the Mackenzie Arena (the “Roundhouse”) on your right. Shortly after you see the Arena on your right, 4th St. will merge with 3rd St. After they merge, watch for the second right (Palmetto St.) Turn right on Palmetto. Go 2 blocks on Palmetto, then turn right on Vine St. You will see barriers ahead where Vine St. is closed to auto traffic. The last parking lot on the right, just before those barriers, is the parking lot for Grote Hall. Tournament HQ is Grote 129. Enter by the door by the dumpster.

Here’s a link to GoogleMaps. Use with caution – note that Baldwin St. was shortened decades ago and Vine St. is inaccurately marked as a through street.

For those interested, Ezell-Harding A took first place with Station Camp High School coming in second and Webb A in third in the varsity division. I'm not sure about the junior varsity division however.
Congratulations and well done to all the teams who participated!
Thanks to everyone who put a lot of hard work into running this tournament--I really appreciated it.

Ezell completely dominated the JV bracket, taking first, second, and third place.

I am proud to say that the Webb Feet, with two players playing in their first tournament, took home the 4th place trophy.
