Downingtown High School East Invitational

Post by orangutan » Fri Oct 19, 2018 7:16 am

Downingtown East High School is excited to announce our high school invitational on Saturday, January 5, 2018. Registration will be from at 8-8:30 AM, with matches starting at 9. This tournament will be directed by myself and Malaika Paralkar.

This tournament will have two divisions: experienced and novice. Any team may register for the experienced division, while the novice division is designed for underclassmen or those with less quizbowl experience. Please ask if you're not sure which division is appropriate for your team! Each school may register 3 teams total initially. Additional teams will be added to a waitlist.

The form does not allow 0 as an option for the number of open teams, novice teams or buzzers. What do we do if we are not bringing anything/anyone in one of these categories?
