Bradleyville vs. Chadwick


The cost per team was just $60 for up to six players* and included

  • Free soda and pizza from Hook & Ladder Pizza Co. for lunch
  • Free t-shirts for players and the coach
  • Medals for top scorers
  • Trophies for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place & consolation
  • Two-game guarantee with full matches
  • NAQT question set (# TBA)
  • High-quality moderators with reading and/or quiz bowl experience

*The $60 covers one coach and up to six players. You can add extra players to your roster for $10 each. Extra sponsors, bus drivers, guests, or anyone else who would like a t-shirt and pizza can be added for $10, but we must have the headcount and money at the time of registration. (E.g., a team of six with one coach and a bus driver would be $70; a team with eight players and one coach, but no bus driver, would be $80.)\

Chowing down on 30 pizzas from Hook & Ladder!


We used the bracket below. The two teams who lost in the first round of the consolation bracket were eliminated after just two games, but everyone else played three full matches. We had three rooms going at once and there were five rounds. Seeding was determined randomly.
