Team & Roster Size
There is a maximum of 6 players and a minimum of 1 player on each team - no exceptions without explicit permission from the tournament director. Up to four members may play at once. We recommend no more than four members on a team, so that students may play the maximum number of rounds.

Following January 27, 2018, two additional teams from that school on the waitlist will be moved off of the waitlist and registered (assuming that there are spots still open).

Please fill out the registration form ( by February 3rd. You should receive a confirmation email from within the next few days (if not, please email us ASAP!). By February 7th, please provide us with a tentative roster - it can be changed it later, but having a roster just makes our stats person's job much easier.

Kudos to Audrey and the JHU folk who ran this tournament. This was a very well run tournament. Everything was on time, good moderators, a great mix of quality teams. A wonderful day of quiz. Congratulations to the top three finishers; Montgomery Blair, Richard Montgomery A & B. You were all not only good players but also good competitors and sportsman. It was worth the flight from Florida!
