University High School History Bowl/History Bee Tournament (12/15/2012)

Location: University High School, 4771 Campus Drive, Irvine, California, 92612

Date: The tournament will be held on Saturday, December 15th, 2012. Registration will begin at 8 AM, and the opening meeting will start at 8:50 AM.

Format: We will be using the History Bowl/History Bee Regional C Set, and adhere to the rules officially found on http://www.historybowl.com/ and http://hs.historybee.com/. In addition, during the lunch break, the U.S. Geography Challenge Regional Exam, a 50-question multiple choice exam, will be held.

As stated in the official rules, any team with a .500 preliminary record or better or a playoff win will qualify for the History Bowl National Championships. Individuals qualify for the National History Bee Championships by finishing in the top half of their draws or by advancing at least one round in the finals. Students who finish in the top half of their site or the top site nationally will qualify for the National Championships of the U.S. Geography Challenge, which will be used to select the four members of the U.S. team for the International Geography Olympiad in Kyoto, Japan next summer.

Eligibility: All high school students are welcome to attend.
Pricing: The cost is $75 per team for History Bowl, and $15 per student for History Bee. There is a $5 discount for every functioning buzzer brought for History Bowl. For every two teams, every school must bring along one adult to be a reader and scorekeeper.

Field Cap: None

Registration: Please register at this site: http://www.historybowl.com/registration/.

Lunch: Many restaurants are located at the UCI Center, which is a short 5-10 minute walk from University High School.

Updates for the tournament will be made primarily through the SoCal Quiz Bowl Facebook group as well as on this forum.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email [email protected]

Thank you, and we hope to see you all there!

I mentioned this on the Socal Quizbowl Facebook group a few days ago, but Arcadia is planning on sending 4-5 teams to your December 15 tournament.

This isn't an official message from Arcadia History Bowl (we'll send the full details by email in a few days), but I just wanted to give you guys a heads up.

Just wanted to thank Alex Jow and everyone in Southern California for their support with outreach for this tournament, as this tournament has seen the largest growth of any NHBB event so far this year (8 teams last year, 20 this year!). Some of these schools haven't done much in the way of quizbowl outside of NHBB, so be friendly and enthusiastic with them, and talk up other upcoming events in the area.

When will results/stats be up for this tournament? Also, while I did not attend this tournament and am unaffiliated with Arcadia History Bowl, I'm reasonably sure Arcadia A was the Varsity champion, not Arcadia B.
