The Ithaca High School quizbowl team will be hosing the second annual BrainBusters Spring Tournament on Saturday, April 7th. Registration will start at 7:45 with staff and player meetings at 8:30. We plan to start the first round no later than 9:00.

Set used
We will be mirroring the Maryland Fall set, a regular-difficulty high school set written by the University of Maryland quizbowl team. You can find more details about the set, including a subject distribution, here.

Please complete this form to register. We are setting a soft cap of 24 teams for bracketing purposes, but that can be expanded if there is enough interest. Registration will close on Saturday, March 31st.

Fee Structure
The base price is $80 for the first team and $70 for each additional team. We are also offering the following discounts:
  • -$5 per functional buzzer
  • -$10 per staffer provided by the school
  • -$10 per 150 miles traveled to IHS (one way, according to Google Maps)
  • -$10 for any new team (a team that has never played at either BB Fall or BB Spring in the past).
The minimum fee per team is $50. Checks should be written to "Ithaca High School Brain Team" and mailed to Ithaca High School, 1401 N Cayuga St, Ithaca, NY 14850

As of the registration deadline of March 30, we now sit at 17 teams officially signed up. We will likely bump this up to an even 18 teams with one Ithaca High School house team.

I have closed the registration form. If you are still interested in registering, please contact me directly at bkirk at icsd dot k12 dot ny dot us
