(Hong Kong) Welcome to the inaugural Asian Championships of the International History Bee and Bowl! We’re delighted to welcome 48 History Bowl teams from throughout Asia and nearly 100 players in the History Bee to Hong Kong this weekend for an amazing event. A big thank you to Sha Tin College and to all coaches, parents, teachers, and school administrators who are making this weekend possible. The weekend begins with a boat trip excursion in Victoria Harbour on Friday, continues with our Sports and Entertainment History Bee early Saturday, and then the main events: the History Bee Saturday afternoon and the History Bowl all day Sunday. If you have any questions, please email nolwenn@historybowl.com. We’re busy putting the finishing touches on the event, but are happy to respond to you as soon as possible. On top of all that, IHBB staff is visiting three schools in Hong Kong on Thursday to interest them for next year before beginning outreach efforts in Vietnam next week! So we’re always looking ahead too. But above all, good luck to everyone competing this weekend, and we look forward to seeing you in Hong Kong very soon!
