Additionally, for any prospective tournament hosts out there, here are the non-NAQT tossup-bonus sets being offered for mirrors this coming season that are not already claimed in the above calendar. (To order NAQT questions, email hosting@naqt.com or visit the NAQT website):

ATHENA II: HS regular difficulty with a specific focus on women, available for mirrors on September 8, 2018.

2018 Glasgow Scottie: HS regular difficulty, available for mirrors on September 22, 2018. This set is being run at Glasgow High School in Kentucky on August 25, 2018, at a tournament that drew Ohio teams from Miami Valley, Northmont, and Olentangy Liberty last year.

SCOP Novice 9: HS novice difficulty, available for mirrors on October 13, 2018. This set has significant overlap with SCOP MS 9, which will be mirrored at Olentangy Berlin's MS-only event on 1/12.

Harvard Fall XIII: HS regular-plus difficulty, available for mirrors on November 10, 2018. This set has historically been mirrored at Solon Winter Clash on Sunday, and I would imagine it will be again this year.

Illinois Reinstein Set: HS regular difficulty, available for mirrors in March 2019.

Last I talked with Mike Sedlack, he mentioned interest in a possible resurrection of the Golden Shamrock. Let me talk to him within this next week or so, and I’ll post back with a more firm ‘yeah’ or ‘nah.’

A pencil-in date for that would be October 20th.

Tom,
Fall is open in Columbus are you thinking about hosting an event?

Beavercreek will most likely be using one of the NAQT A-sets for its fall tournament.

I don't think I'm hosting an OAC tournament this year. My best player decided not to do quizbowl his senior year and I only have one remaining reliable player. I had a lot of interested freshmen, but we'll see how many actually show up when I schedule our first practice. TRASH at Olmsted Falls will be December 15 I believe and I think Joe will run the Tipp mirror on the 8th. Other mirrors TBD.

Miami Valley will host a middle school division at Give Thanks for Matt's Buzzers on 11/10 on a housewritten tossup-bonus set (target difficulty NAQT MS level). We will also host a second iteration of the Groundhog Day Invitational, but this time, for extra Groundhog fun, teams will play a six-person Deep Bench format (for an idea about how that works, click here).

This won’t be happening.

As of now... there are no events for the fall in Central Ohio.

I can’t guarantee that I would be available for any date in particular unless it’s a week or two in advance, so no.

180A and 182A are already assigned for Ohio leagues and tournaments, and 184A probably won't be ready for release in the fall.

That leaves 178A, which is being read at White Cloud on October 13th (a handful of Ohio teams will be there) or 176A, which Greg Bossick is using at East Palestine - literally the farthest spot in the state of Ohio from Beavercreek you could probably find. So I think you'd be okay hosting on either one of those.

Didn't you guys use BAIT last year, or what mirror did you have? I can't recall.

We used RMBCT last year. The process of writing questions was extremely harrowing, so we abandoned writing a reiteration. Are there any other housewrites available for fall?

For regular difficulty, ATHENA II is supposed to be ready by September 8 of this year, and there's also the Glasgow Scottie set available after September 22. For lower difficulty, SCOP Novice is available on October 13 (Olentangy Berlin is running SCOP MS in January, but that's a middle school-only division).

Some new tournaments have been added to the calendar...I realized the post was missing a few tournaments that were on the NAQT schedule (Petti Warz II @ Pettisville, Ohio Small School State Championship, Cleveland Open @ Western Reserve), so don't miss those!

I also added the regular-season History Bee & Bowl events currently scheduled in Ohio (and one just over the border in Western PA)...while these are not all-subject quiz bowl events, they do make up part of the tournament calendar for many quiz bowl teams in the state. Also please note that the so-called "Miami Valley" NHBB tournament does not take place at The Miami Valley School, but at Beavercreek HS. NHBB events are listed in orange.

Some updates...

Hicksville will be 11/10
Gahanna 11/17

If Smithville doesn't get back to me today, I will run something at Clermont Northeastern on 12/1.

Despite the failure to run the scrimmages at Zanesville, we will still go ahead with a regular event on 2/2.

The Northmont Middle School event scheduled for October 6th has been pushed back to February 9th to avoid conflicts that some teams had with that date. We will run it concurrently with our History Bowl high school event.

If Solon is using EFT for their February tournament, are there are any plans for a school to mirror HFT?

We only decided on using EFT yesterday because apparently Aurora is hosting HFT on 3/9 according to the HFT thread for the set.
