I know this is early, but Danville High School will be hosting a tournament on september 23rd 2006. It will be a four quarter format. I wanted to give coaches advance notice since it is somewhat early in the season.

I believe it's Kentucky...Danville, Alabama doesn't have much of a quiz bowl tradition as far as I can tell.

They may someday, but the poster was the former coach at Dunbar out of Lexington (Kentucky, not the small town in NW Alabama :grin: ) and went to Danville...there supposed to be really, really, really good

Knupp is building a strong program in Danville. He was our former JV coach and is really doing well with Danville. He took a very weak team, and turned it into one of the top 5 programs in the state within one year.

After consulting with the new Danville coach, Rob Kremer, this tournament has been moved to Russell KY for 2006. The date remains the same.

I'm not familiar with it, so what is the "four-quarter format?"

by mknupp
The four quarter format is Q1: 10 quick toss-ups, Q2: 5 toss-ups with attached bonuses, Q3: team worksheet, Q4: 8 pyramid style toss-ups worth double normal toss-up points.

I would like to thank everyone who braved the storms to come. We only had one team not able to attend. In all 30 teams from 17 schools competed. After the morning rounds Johnson Central had earned the top seed for the playoffs with Detriot Catholic Central not far behind as the second seed.

Playoff results:

1st: DCC A
2nd: Johnson Central A
Semis: Paintsville A, Pikeville
Quarters: Cabell Midland A, Paul Blazer A, Johnson Central C, Central Hardin A
Round of 16: Fleming Co. A, DCC B, Piarist A, White Cloud, Ripley, Eastern, Johnson Central B, Hurricane A

Thanks to all players and coaches for coming. Hopefully next year will be even better.
