ATHENA II @ Lexington HS MA, (March 31st, 2018) CANCELLED

Post by 19.prasadm » Sun Sep 24, 2017 9:29 pm

The Girls in Quiz Bowl Committee is pleased to announce we will be hosting the Academic Tournament for Highschool Education N’ Achievement, (ATHENA) at Lexington High School in Lexington, MA on March 31st, 2018.

The purpose of the tournament is to promote diversity in quiz bowl. By hosting this tournament we hope to portray quiz bowl as a welcoming community and promote questions that aren’t the same basic ones you see in every set but actually encourage people to study about more nuanced topics. The set will be housewritten.


The field is capped at 24 teams, but could increase with more interest.

Fee structure:
$80 base fee for each team
-$5 buzzer discount (max 2 per school)
-$15/100mi distance discount
-$10 experienced staffer discount

Teams interested in registering can either reply to this post or fill out this google form, https://goo.gl/forms/LBwGgZjkUBSlzK5k2
Please include the number of teams you are bringing, how many fully functional lockout buzzer systems you can bring, as well as how many experienced staffers you can provide. If you do plan on bringing staffers, please inform me whether said staffers would like to read and/or scorekeep, and whether they will be able to provide a laptop. In addition, please provide a team contact, as well as their email.

On the day of the tournament, registration will be from 8:15-8:45, and rounds will hopefully begin at 9:00 after the opening meeting. We hope to see you there!

UNFORTUNATELY ATHENA II WILL NOT BE TAKING PLACE THIS YEAR DUE TO A CONFLICT WITH NHBB NEW ENGLAND CHAMPIONSHIPS. WE LOOK FORWARD TO HOSTING NEXT YEAR.

The tournament cancellation is a shame, but is the set still being housewritten, or is that cancelled as well?

The set will be housewritten and ready for mirrors in the 2018-2019 school year
