The Harding Academic Quiz Team is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the 2011 Harding Kickoff Tournament on September 24th, 2011 in Searcy, Arkansas. This tournament will use the Minnesota Novice set. This should be a great opportunity for high schools to get back into the swing of things before getting deep into the regular season. This tournament has been certified by the Quiz Bowl Alliance of Arkansas, a newly formed organization committed to promoting high quality quiz bowl in the state. Some of the criteria required for tournament certification include pyramidal questions and a 7-game minimum for all teams.

How to register: Send an email, with subject line “2011 Harding Kickoff Tournament”, to [email protected] indicating the number of teams you would like to register and the number of buzzers you can bring.

Fee Schedule
Base Fee: $40
- B, C teams: $10 off base fee of any additional teams
- Buzzer set: - $5 each
- Distance: -$5 for every 50 miles, one way

If there are any problems with fees, please let me know and we’ll work something out – no team will be turned away for lack of funds.

A round robin format with appropriate playoffs will be used so that teams will play at least 7 games.

Registration will take place at 830. Rounds will start as soon after that and a team meeting as possible. This tournament will be held at the Reynolds Building located on the campus of Harding University. Directions to this building and lunch options will be in a ‘logistics’ email that will be sent to registered teams closer to the tournament date.
