Re: L&N Train Bowl—Knoxville TN (10/08/2016)

Unfortunately, quizbowl at Farragut is pretty much dead. The few guys who are interested only go to a few history bowl tournaments, and from what I've heard they've made it a "private" club. From what I remember, Farragut's and STEM's clubs were the only decently active ones in Knox County for the ...

Re: L&N Train Bowl—Knoxville TN (10/08/2016)

Do the Knox County schools even play quiz bowl anymore?? L&N is in downtown Knoxville, and yet Farragut and Cedar Springs (home school team) are the only schools representing Knox County.

Figured I'd give this thread a bump. Field update was posted on 9/21. Still some spots remaining!

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

I hope things are coming together with contacting schools in the area. As I mentioned earlier, my school is considering holding a tournament next year; however, my one major concern regarding this is getting enough competent moderators/readers. It will almost certainly be a novice tournament in the...

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

I'm not sure if a league would be the best format necessarily for East TN. Leagues are often time and travel-intensive and seem to work better in a single large urban area where the travel time is relatively low. Something small that's centered in Knoxville might work, but it seems like just gettin...

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

So this is pretty telling. How bad has quiz bowl participation gotten in the Knoxville area? I was looking at the team list for this year's Scholars' Bowl competition on PBS, and of the ~2 dozen public and private high schools currently in Knox County, half of them didn't participate (Karns, Halls, ...

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

I'm super excited to hear some Quizbowl activity in East TN. My school (STEM Academy) started up a few years ago and we have a very small club that can field two teams at a tournament on a good day. That said, I think all the schools in the region would benefit from some local tournaments. Without ...

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

Oh hey, I'm glad someone is taking the initiative to getting quizbowl back up and running in East Tennessee again! I recently revived UTK's quizbowl team this school year, although I haven't been able to spend time doing much outreach thus far (I really wanted to host a tournament this semester, bu...

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

Not sure how many active Knoxville-area members of the forum there are out there, but I'm in the process of reaching out to schools in the area, to try and see what kind of interest there would be to form a quiz bowl league for the 2016-17 school year. If I get a "good" response, the next step would...

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

I'm new to this site, but I figured I'd weigh in. During the 90s and early 2000s, the quiz bowl network was very strong in East TN, largely because of the number of sponsors/schools hosting tournaments and the number of educators who were willing to dedicate time to quiz bowl. East TN used to host a...
