The Miami Valley School quiz bowl team cordially invites you to the Groundhog Day Classic! This will be a mirror of WHAQ II, a regular-difficulty high school set housewritten by Miami Valley in collaboration with Washington HS (Washington, MO). The tournament will take place at Miami Valley's campus in Dayton on February 3, 2018.

The initial field cap will be 12 teams. If there is sufficient interest, we will try to raise this cap, provided that we have enough moderators and we can secure enough space on our small campus.

Assuming a full field, teams will be split into two morning brackets of six and play round robin. In the afternoon, teams will be re-bracketed into two new brackets of six (championship and consolation) and play round robin again. If necessary, there will be a final played (either advantaged or unadvantaged depending on records of teams involved). This format is subject to change depending on field size, but all teams will be guaranteed ten games.

More information on the WHAQ II set can be found here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewto ... 09&t=20041.

Payment can be made to The Miami Valley School (put "Quiz Bowl" in the memo). Our address is 5151 Denise Dr, Dayton, OH 45429. You may also bring cash or check to the tournament site.

Registration will be from 8:00 A.M. until 8:30 A.M., followed by a brief meeting for coaches and players. We expect to begin play promptly at 9:00 A.M.

FEES:
First Team: $55
Each Additional Team: $45
BUZZER DISCOUNT: -$5 per buzzer system, limit two per team that you are bringing.
READER DISCOUNT: -$10 for a competent moderator, limit two per team that you are bringing.
TRAVEL DISCOUNT: There is a $10 discount for teams traveling over 100 miles one way (our zip code is 45429).
MINIMUM Fee: $35

If your program has not played a pyramidal tossup-bonus quiz bowl tournament in the last three years, your team(s) will automatically qualify for the minimum fee of $35. Please ask if you have questions regarding this discount.

For lunch, we will offer cheese and pepperoni pizza for $10/pie. There is a dearth of convenient dining options around MVS, so please plan on staying on-site.

To register or for more information contact Tyler Benedict: tyler DOT benedict AT mvschool DOT com. We hope to see you in Dayton in February!

Field as of 1/23/18 (teams/buzzers/readers)

Benjamin Logan (1/1/0)
Northmont (2/1/1)
Little Miami (2/1/0)
Beavercreek (1/2/0)
St. Charles (1/2/1)
Battle Ground Academy, Tennessee (1/0/0)
Celina (1/1/0)

I'm glad! Since the field cap is small right now, we'll currently limit registration to 2 teams per school. Coaches, if you'd like to bring C teams and beyond, please let me know...we will maintain a waitlist for such teams and we'll do our best to get all interested teams in the field. Thank you for inquiring!

Bump for 1/21 field update!

We are also removing the limit on the number of teams one school can bring. If any currently registered teams would like to bring more than two teams, we will register your additional squads.

With the addition of Celina, we now have 12 teams signed up for the Groundhog Day Classic. We have enough rooms and staff to raise our field cap to 18 and will continue to take registrations (including registrations for C teams and beyond).

Hi Tyler!

Looks like I posted before I read your most recent post. The Wellington School is planning on bringing one team to this tournament. Thanks!

We might be down to one team. I will have a good idea today after practice.
