Hello Quizbowl Community,
Today we’re happy to announce a major overhaul and expansion of our blog. From this day forth, we will be posting as the Greater PENNSYLVANIA Quizbowl group. That’s right all yinz, we will now be devoting just as much space to tournaments, news, players, and coaches in and around Pittsburgh, up in the Poconos, and everything in between. As quality quiz bowl grows in the state, we thought it fitting to recognize the achievements of the hundreds of students participating in those parts of the state too. For those of you in Delaware and South Jersey, never fear, for we are still GREATER Pennsylvania and will be covering tournaments and such in these areas (as well as North Jersey, New York, Ohio, West Virginia, and Maryland where applicable).
Right now, there have been no announced tournaments in Western PA, but typically both the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University host two events a year. If you’re up for a bit of a drive, teams are always welcome to head to the Philadelphia Area and Lancaster County and play at their existing events. And most of all, if your high school is interested in hosting a tournament to raise some money and grow the game, consult our tournament guide! Please keep an eye on our regional calendar, which will now announce relevant events inside and outside of the State for those teams. Happy buzzing!
