2016 Louisiana State University SpoOoOoktacular

Postby kdmeche » Sun Sep 18, 2016 6:28 pm

Quiz Bowl at LSU cordially invites you to attend the 2016 Louisiana State University SpoOoOoktacular Quiz Bowl Tournament!

After a successful first time hosting this past spring, we've decided to double up and offer another tournament during the Fall. We've got some fresh faces full of energy and we're looking to hit a home run again!

Seeing as this tournament is the weekend before Halloween, we've decided to theme it up! If you would like, come in your favorite costume as a few of our members will be in their own costumes. If you're organized enough, you could even have your whole team organize a theme. Who knows, we could even see rounds of The Beatles vs. Soviet Premiers being moderated by Barnacle Boy! The possibilities are endless!
