2020 David Riley Quizbowl Conference: Postponed

Post by Blackboard Monitor Vimes »

The 2020 David Riley Quizbowl Conference will be posted for viewing online at a later date.

The conference began in 2015 as the PACE Coaches Conference, and has since expanded to become a panel discussion on all facets of the quizbowl community. Topics discussed at past conferences include team and circuit development, conduct and interactions between community members of different ages, scaling up from high school to college quizbowl, and “Making Your Home in Quizbowl.”

The conference is named in honor of David Riley, the former quizbowl coach at Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois. He was a tournament host, chair of the Illinois High School Scholastic Bowl Coaches Association, question writer, and PACE member. He passed away in 2015 at the age of 59, but his enthusiasm for quizbowl has had a deep and lasting impact on our activity in Illinois and across the country.

All coaches and players are welcome, and we plan to have recordings and transcripts of the conference available for those who are unable to view it live.

Panelists will be announced shortly. If you would like to suggest a topic to be covered or to help us select a date and time that will reach the largest audience, please use this form. A final date and time will be announced Wednesday, 5/13, but topic suggestions will be accepted through Monday, 6/1.
