provincials, schedule, upcoming

Quizbowl at uToronto on March 3, Provincials in Ottawa on May 5

University of Toronto is hosting their High School Novice tournament on March 3 (Sunday) at their downtown campus. Meghan Torchia will be directing.

They’re charging $100 for the first team and $50 per extra team from a school. Do not be misled by the word “novice” — it is for any high school teams, no matter how advanced. Meghan often says “novice” to show that the tournament will be “not vicious.”

Ontairo Quizbowl Provincials will be on May 5 at Carleton University in Ottawa. That’s also a Sunday, and it’s the day after IHBB Canadian Nationals at Lisgar CI in Ottawa.

My hope is that some competitive teams from South Ontario will do a “big weekend” and make the trip to Ottawa for both championships. I’ll be directing, and I plan to do Quizbowl Provincials on a schedule of 8:00-to-3:00, using timed rounds, to leave time for all out-of-town teams to travel home on Sunday night. The fees should be under $80 per team.

As always, there is no “qualifying” for Provincials — any high school team can enter. You will register for the tournament by emailing me. If a team from outside Ontario wants to play, we’ll probably include them as an exhibition team.

The other upcoming events I know are Lisgar Reach next weekend, local Reach leagues, and local History Bee&Bowl events.
