Thank you to the 8 teams who attended and to Mr. Kevin Commo for coordinating the hosting arrangements and directing the tournament.  Additional thanks goes to the individuals who read and kept score for matches throughout the day.  We hope that all teams will be able to attend our New England Championships at ConVal High School on March 31, 2018, which will use our A set.  We look forward to welcoming all qualified teams to our national championships in Arlington, VA on April 27-29 and all qualified students (all students on winning bowl teams or who were in the top 25% of their division, either after preliminaries or after playoffs, in the bee) to the International History Olympiad in Berlin, Germany on July 14-22.  Thanks again for attending and continuing to support our tournaments!
