ACE 2016 Summer Classic (June 24 – 26)

Post by Nick » Fri May 13, 2016 1:15 pm

ACE is pleased to announce a new event for quizbowl players called the ACE Summer Classic.

The ACE Summer Classic consists of three events, outlined below:

Main Event – an individual buzzer competition for all academic competitors! This competition is using NAQT's ICT Division II set. The Champion of each division (High School, Collegiate, and Masters) receives an exciting new custom trophy called the Golden Buzzer

Anniversary Doubles - a doubles (teams of two) buzzer tournament based entirely around content (academic and pop culture) that has been newsworthy or noteworthy in the previous calendar year

Family Quiz Night - a visual tournament with teams of four answering on a worksheet questions displayed on a screen. This is “quizbowl pub trivia.” This will be the same familiar quizbowl content asked in creative ways: maps, scientific models, math computation, quotes, works of art, etc.

The 2016 ACE Summer Classic will be held on the campus of Bellarmine University (Louisville, KY) from Friday evening (June 24th) to Sunday morning (June 26th). More details and the registration form can be found on our website but please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have (info <@>

We hope that in the years (and Classics) to come, this event has a custom set for the Main Event and attracts the greatest quizbowl players of past, present, and future. We will post a picture of the Golden Buzzer as soon as we have it – but I’m telling you right now, it’s pretty glorious.

Are you the greatest quizbowl player in the land?
