Thanks to the 7 teams who attended, to Michael Goodyear for his continued service as our Tournament Director, and to Gail Heninger for coordinating the hosting arrangements at Davenport Central High School. Thanks as well to our moderators and staff who assisted with reading and scorekeeping throughout the day. We hope that all teams and students who attended will be able to join us at our upcoming B Set and A Set tournaments in the area, including our Central Illinois tournament in Mattoon, IL, on Saturday, February 24, and the Iowa State Championships on March 3.

We also look forward to welcoming all students and teams who qualified for our 2018
National Championships to Arlington, VA and Washington, DC on April 27-29, 2018. Also, all students who
finished in the top 25% of the Bee in their division (in either prelims or after playoffs) or who were on a
winning Bowl team qualify for the 2018 International History Olympiad in Berlin, Germany on July 14-22!
Thanks again for coming and for your continued support of our tournaments!
