Due to impending weather, this tournament has been cancelled and rescheduled for March 17th, 2018. The set may or may not be changed, pending confirmation from NAQT. Registration has been re-opened using the same Google Forms link in the original post.

Does this also mean that the deadline for registration will be moved?

The set has been switched to IS-175A, so teams that played at Tippecanoe or SAGACITY can now register. The other Ohio tournaments using this set are Northeast In the Know and Eastwood.

Inspired by Solon's excellent POTUS side event at their February tournament, we have decided to announce our own optional singles side event during lunch at this tournament - the Boardman Spartan AGOGE (Academic-Challenge Gauntlet of Greek Erudition).

This tournament will be a tossup-only shootout; we aim for one round of 32 tossups or two rounds of 16 if there is enough demand. Players will compete individually, and the cost for this event is $3 per player, and the winner will be provided an award.

We will allot approximately 45 minutes-1 hour for lunch, and we anticipate AGOGE to take about 20 minutes; participating players should finish lunch about 20 minutes after the end of round 5, then immediately head to the competition room. Players are strongly encouraged to stay on campus for lunch if they plan on playing; we will be selling pizza, chips, candy, and drinks at BHS.

This side event will consist of questions about ancient Greece, and the difficulty level will be close to an NAQT IS (regular difficulty) set. The majority of the questions will be history, literature, or mythology. Art, philosophy, math, and science will also be covered. The questions will be written by the Boardman High School Varsity quiz bowl team.

If you have any players who are interested in AGOGE, please email me at ppadmanabhan7 AT gmail DOT com with the names of the players competing. Players can also sign up on the day of the tournament. Thank you!
