Fleming County - High School Tournament – Jan 7, 2023

The Fleming County High School Academic Panthers are pleased to announce that we plan to return to in-person competition for the 2023 Fleming County Academic Tournament. We will resume hosting the FCAT on January 7, 2023, at FCHS. There are, however, a few planned changes from past years.

In previous years we have utilized a hybrid format of NAQT toss-up questions with single-part bonuses. The newest iteration of the FCAT will return to the traditional Kentucky quick recall format. We have secured a question set to be written by individuals with a background in quick recall that will make it possible to play a format that we’re all familiar with while also keeping the best attributes of quiz bowl.

The tournament will consist of a varsity division and a “B” division. We do have a cap of 32 teams at this time.

Morning round robin brackets will be used to seed afternoon rounds, allowing us to rank the field.

The entry fee for a school’s first team is $80. Additional teams from a school may enter for $40. We ask that schools currently limit entry to no more than 2 teams at this point. Schools wishing to include more than two teams may be able to do so closer to tournament time, depending on the available space.

We also ask that participants provide a working buzzer system (non-computerized) and a moderator or scorekeeper. Running a tournament without enough help to man each competition room is impossible.
