Texas Quiz Bowl Alliance invites you to compete at San Antonio Fiesta, to be held at Northside ISD’s John Jay High School in San Antonio. This tournament will consist of a varsity division and a middle school division. Registration will be $125 per team; single teams from unique schools will be given priority of multiple teams for single schools. Schools which have not competed in a TQBA event in the past three years can register one team free of charge.

The tournament will be held March 29, 2014, at 7611 Marbach Rd, SA TX 78227. The tournament is being organized and directed by Texas Quiz Bowl assistant director Stephen Fontenot. Schools wishing to register for the event should email their school name, faculty sponsor, team member names and grades (as soon as possible, but not necessary for registration), and contact information to Stephen at sfontenot@texasquizbowl.org.

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 a.m. Each team will play at least 6 preliminary round matches. The tournament will conclude with a single-elimination phase to determine a champion in each division.
