Upcoming: Stegosaurus Bowl in Ottawa -- Dec. 5

Stegosaurus prepping for quizbowl.

Stegosaurus Cup will be a quizbowl tournament on Saturday, December 5 at Lisgar Collegiate Institute in Ottawa. It will use a Canadian edition of the BASK question set.


Teams should be at Lisgar by 8:30 AM to register and pay. We will start at 9:00 AM, and teams may miss their first rounds if they arrive late. We will finish by 5:00 PM. We intend to play 11 rounds of quizbowl, though we may shorten the event if time is running out.

There will be a one-hour lunch break. Teams should bring a lunch, or they should get fast food on Elgin Street (three blocks west of the tournament).

We intend to use a ladder-style match schedule, to try and get more even match-ups and close games. We may switch to a round-robin schedule depending on attendance numbers.


It will cost a base fee of $60 for a school's first team, with these discounts:

  -$10 for subsequent teams (i.e., if a school sends three teams, their second and third teams both get this discount)
  -$20 for new teams to quizbowl (i.e., has only played Reach or History Bee and Bowl since 2014)
  -$10 for each scorekeeper you register and bring (anyone can do this job, but I will need scorekeeper contact info ahead of time)
  -$5 for each working buzzer set your bring
  -$10 for teams of only one or two players

The minimum fee for a team is $30. We can take cash or cheques written to "Lisgar Collegiate -- Reach."


Please email me (Brendan) at Please include the number of teams, number of buzzers, and names and emails of any volunteers you are bringing.
