TQBA’s first Golden Triangle Open will take place on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at Monsignor Kelly High School (5950 Kelly Dr, Beaumont, TX 77707). This event is open to high school teams from East Texas and West Louisiana.

Check-in for this tournament will begin at 3:30. Matches will begin at 4:00. Each team will play 5 preliminary matches. After a pizza dinner, teams will be seeded into a single elimination playoff bracket. The event should be finished by 9:00 p.m.

Quiz Bowl is an 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.

This tournament is FREE for the first teams from all schools. Additional teams from a given school can be entered for a $90 entry fee. TQBA encourages all teams to bring younger players (particularly those in 9th and 10th grades) to this tournament. As a bonus, each entering team composed entirely of 9th and 10th grade students will receive a FREE Bonito Study Guide.

Registration is open and can be done by email to tqbamail@gmail.com. This tournament will use NAQT set IS-159-A. A sample IS-A packet is also available.
