Our tournament will be held on February 5th, 2022 at:
Chattahoochee High School:
5230 Taylor Road
Johns Creek, GA 30022
The tournament is tentatively scheduled to be in person, but we will continue to monitor conditions and adjust according to our district’s COVID protocols. All KITTEN participants will have to adhere to Fulton County masking rules, whatever those are at the time of the tournament.
In the event that we are unable to host the tournament in person, we will host the tournament in an online format (likely Discord).
Both middle school and high school teams are permitted to play this tournament, which is aimed at providing an introductory Quiz Bowl experience for new players and JV/novice teams. We loosely define JV/Novice players as anyone in the 9th-10th grades OR is in their first year of playing pyramidal Quizbowl. Although we obviously won’t reject anyone from participating, we request that more experienced players either send a novice team or sit this one out.
