We have reached our capacity of 18 teams registered and one team (Ft. Morgan, who registered a heart-breaking one minute and five seconds after Elizabeth) on the waitlist. If any team is unable to come, let us know ASAP so we can give Ft. Morgan a spot.

You can see the schedule here (hopefully final):

We'll have toroidal breakfast foods, juice, and information for you there. We'll set up around 8:45 AM for an on-time 9:30 AM start to play. If you're paying by check, please make checks out to University of Colorado Trivia Buffs. Don't forget to bring your buzzer systems.

We had a last-minute cancellation from Cherokee Trail High School's two teams. Ft. Morgan took one of those slots, but we now have room for an additional team.

If you're not already at the maximum number of teams (3) and would like to bring another team (or know of a school who'd like to get in), please contact [email protected] ASAP. First come, first served.
