C.E. Byrd Fall Tournament - Shreveport, LA 10/20 - IS178A

Post by sgoebel »

C.E. Byrd High School in Shreveport, Louisiana is pleased to announce that its Fall Quiz Bowl Tournament that will take place on Saturday, October 20, 2018, starting at 8:30 AM. We will be using NAQT questions and format (un-timed) for the tournament. The question set will be IS-178A. After lunch, teams will be re-bracketed, which means that every team will play until the end of the day’s competition. We plan on scheduling at least eight rounds of competition for every team that signs up.

This year we will have both a junior varsity and a varsity division. JV teams will consist of students in 10th grade or lower. Exceptions may be made in cases of schools with little or no prior experience with quiz bowl.

Check-in and room assignments will begin at 8:00 am in the learning center (located on the north side of campus, near Kings Highway). The entry fee for the tournament is $60 per team. We are not offering a buzzer discount this year, but would appreciate your buzzer sets if possible. If you would like to read for the tournament, let me know. We appreciate having coaches and sponsors who would like volunteer the day of, but it is not required.

Teams may register here. You may pay the tournament fee by mailing a check payable to C. E. Byrd High School to 3201 Line Ave., Shreveport, LA, 71104 (or by bringing the check with you on the day of the competition).

There will be complimentary breakfast items served in the learning center from 8:00-8:30. Lunch will be from 12:00-1:00 pm, and I recommend selecting a quick option so that afternoon games can begin as scheduled at 1:00pm. Our school is located near a number of easily accessible locations for lunch (these are within two or three blocks of campus, and some are easy to walk to). These include Julie Anne’s café, Wendy’s, Cane’s, McDonald’s, and Taco Bell. We are located on Line Avenue, which also includes more options within a 5-minute drive.

Feel free to email me at [email protected] if you have any questions about the tournament.
