Molly Klodor, Greg Bossick, and the Streetsboro High School Quiz Bowl team will be hosting a mirror of TRASH '15 at Streetsboro High School on Saturday, March 5, 2016. If you’re interested in attending, please register here http://goo.gl/forms/T0S4ehgErV.

TRASH questions cover movies, computers, video games, sports, TV, music, and other topics that aren’t traditionally considered “academic.”

The plan is to have 6-team brackets so that every team is guaranteed five rounds. After lunch, everyone will be seeded into a single-elimination bracket until a winner is crowned. The matches, written by Bob Kilner, will be tossup/bonus format (NAQT), 20 questions per round (this is a mirror of the Olmsted Falls, Tippecanoe and East Palestine tournament on December 12) -- therefore, if you attended any of those sites, you are ineligible to compete at our site.

The cost is $35 per team with a $5 discount for bringing a buzzer set (limit one). If you bring more than one team, you are required to bring an experienced reader to help moderate matches. We welcome JV and Middle School teams! We will also be hosting an adult division at $10 per person. If you know of anyone who might like to compete in an adult division, please have them register here (adult division registration only).

The schedule (we hope) will be:
8-8:30 – Registration
8:45 – General Meeting
9:00 – First round starts
12:00 – 12:30 – Lunch. Lunch will be provided on site. Please advise students to bring at least $5. There will not be much time, so please bring money or pack a lunch.
12:45 - 2:00 – Single-Round Elimination playoffs begin
2:00 – Finals

Please note that this schedule is a best-case scenario. Finals typically end around 4 PM

Play will begin promptly at 9 AM. Please plan to arrive in Streetsboro by 8:30 at the latest. A small breakfast concession stand will be open. Students might consider bringing additional money to purchase coffee/donuts.

The championship and runner-up teams will receive awards, in addition to individual awards for best individual scorers and best wrong answer of the day.

Please note: This tournament will not serve as a qualifier for any post-season tournament.

We will also be hosting an adult division that day. If you know of anyone who might like to compete in an adult division, please have them register here http://goo.gl/forms/BYHBmG0YWQ (adult division registration only).

Please make the check out to “Streetsboro City Schools” and mail to:
