Summer 2017 Practice

Some people requested alternate times for summer practice, so starting this week, there will be practice twice a week this summer.

We will practice from 2-4 PM on Tuesdays in ILC 301.
We will practice from 4-6 PM on Fridays in ILC 401 (or the nearest available room).

Practice is open to any interested students. Come to one. Come to both. (Come to neither, but I would be sad.) I’ll adjust the packet difficulty to the people present. If there are novices present, we’ll use an easier packet. If not, then we’ll use a national level packet.

In other words, if you want to hear an easier question packet, bring a friend who is new to quiz bowl! 🙂

Boise High School will host Matt’s Matches

We will have our second Matt’s Matches on Friday, October 23. Boise High School has offered to host the matches. Matt’s Matches are just informal scrimmage games for new players and teams to get used to the format. Any interested high school students may form a team and try out quiz bowl. To sign up, please fill out the form.

Matches will start at 4:00. Since these are informal scrimmages, if you can’t make it that early but want to play, let us know that you’ll be late and when you expect to arrive, and we can include you when you do arrive.

If you would like to host Matt’s Matches at your school at some point, contact us to set it up.

2015-2016 season of Idaho Quiz Bowl

Hope everyone had a great summer! With the start of the school year, the 2015-2016 season of Idaho Quiz Bowl begins as well.

We will begin this semester with a series of informal scrimmages we call “Matt’s Matches.” Any school wishing to host a scrimmage–either for their own students, or to invite students from other schools over–can contact us to arrange it. We can provide questions, moderators and buzzer systems. We just ask the schools to provide students and a few classrooms to play in. (And, optionally, refreshments or snacks for students.)

For established teams, think about starting to recruit new members. Talking to friends, having a table at your school’s club rush, advertising on the announcements and putting up posters are all ways to help your team grow. We have a poster on our promotional materials page that you are free to use.

For those interested in quiz bowl but with no school team/club to join, consider starting a team at your school. Feel free to contact us if you need help or suggestions.

Have an amazing school year, and we look forward to seeing all of you at our tournaments.
