E. O. Smith High School Academic Quiz Bowl and IQConn are pleased to announce Connecticut Invitational III, which will take place on April 7th, 2012 at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT. In what we believe is the first ever use in New England, we’ll be running HSAPQ questions (tournament set 22, to be exact).
This is the third annual tournament with the purpose of promoting quiz bowl in the New England area. New England teams are strongly encouraged to attend.
Registration will begin at 8:30 AM with the first round beginning at 9:30 AM. Though it is difficult to know exactly when the tournament will end, it is safe to assume sometime in the early evening around 5 or 6 PM.

Base fee, first team: $55
Additional teams: $50
