Dear NHBB Students, Coaches, Parents, and Teams,

Thank you so much for coming out to the 2018 Greater Rockford History Bee and Bowl! We had a fantastic tournament today with tons of great competition. Thank you to all the volunteers, with special thanks to Stuart Warner and everyone at Belvidere HS for being awesome hosts, Linda Greene and Luke Wigtil for coming out to read, and Tyler Vaughan for helping me in tournament central. Every tournament I run runs on the awesome support of people like you, and I cannot thank you enough.

Congratulations to Team Patriots A and Keith Country Day, our Varsity and Junior Varsity Bowl champions, to Michelle Yang and Govind Prabhakar, our Varsity and Junior Varsity Bee champions, and to Sophie Netzel, the top scorer on the US History Bee exam! Your performances today were stellar, as were all that I personally saw and all that I heard from our moderators. I look very forward to seeing continued amazing play at Nationals in less than a month!

Nationals registration is still open, but you’ll want to act quickly! You can consult the attached stats files to see our qualifiers from today’s events. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you again for a great day!
Brad Fischer
