Post by ganman0305 » Sat Jan 05, 2019 12:42 pm

Hello! The University of Iowa Quiz Bowl Team is proud to announce that we will be hosting a mirror of Spartan Housewrite. This tournament will take place on Saturday, March 2rd, 2019 on the University of Iowa Campus in Iowa City.

We will begin checking in teams at 8:00 A.M. and then continue until 8:40 A.M. We will have a moderator meeting at 8:40 A.M. and then a team meeting at 8:45 A.M. Games will begin at 9:00 A.M. An email regarding the location of this on campus, the best parking spots, lunch recommendations, and any and all other information during the week leading up to the tournament. We will try to send out schedules electronically before the tournament, but if we experience changes, we will also print out copies for the team meeting. We will briefly go over the rules during the team meeting in the morning and will have a slideshow displaying these rules and more info too.

The fee structure is as follows:
Base fee per team: $100
Each Additional Team from a School: -$5
Buzzer discount (having at least 8 working buzzers), maximum of 1 buzzer set per school: -$5
Reader discount: -$10
Travel discount: -$10 per 100 miles, one-way (via Google Maps)
Minimum fee per team: $65

You can pay us in cash or with a check filled to "University of Iowa Quiz Bowl."

As of January 5th, 2019, we have a soft cap of 18 teams, but this can easily be expanded as we confirm more staffers. If needed, we will institute a waitlist and add teams as we expand.

To register, please email me, Ganon Evans, at with the tagline "Iowa Spartan Housewrite" to register. Please include how many teams you would like to bring as well as any staffers and buzzers you have as well as if you qualify for the travel discount. I try to check my email everyday, so if I do not respond within a day or two, please send another or call/text 636-443-9934.

Set Details:
