Texas Quiz Bowl Alliance invites you to compete in the fourth annual Winter Rodeo Quiz Bowl Tournament on January 25, 2014, at Cinco Ranch High School, 23440 Cinco Ranch Blvd, Katy, TX 77494. This tournament is open to all Texas secondary schools and will include both black and red divisions intended for experienced and novice teams respectively. The registration fee for all teams is $125 per team with a $35 buzzer discount available.

Quiz Bowl is a academics-based game in which two teams of four students compete to answer questions about math, science, history, literature, religion, and arts. Students buzz in to answer tossup questions and correct tossup responses are rewarded with an opportunity to answer 3 bonus questions that cannot be stolen by the opposing team. The team with the most points after 20 tossup-bonus pairs is the winner.

Registration will open at 8 a.m. We will have a brief meeting at 8:45 and start our first matches around 9:15 a.m. Each team will play at least 6 matches. Pizza will be available for pre-order on tournament morning and drinks and concessions will be available during a 30-minute lunch break after round 6. The tournament will conclude with an elimination phase to determine a champion.

At this event schools earn points towards qualifying to participate in the 2014 Texas Quiz Bowl State Championship. The winning team at this tournament will qualify for 15th annual Texas Quiz Bowl State Championship.
