Old Christmas Classic – Floyd Central HS – MG/HS – 1/5/2019

Where:           Floyd Central High School

When:            January 5, 2019—Registration is from 7:45 to 8:30 AM EST

Cost:               $75.00 per team

Old Christmas is the traditional day when Appalachian families celebrated Christmas, on January 6. This is still marked around the world in a number of other ways—the traditional 12th day of Christmas, the Feast of the Epiphany…but for traditional mountain families, it was a holdover from the days when their European forbears refused to switch from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar, which cut eleven days from the year. Most families do not celebrate Old Christmas anymore, but many across our aging population can tell you about when they did. So, why not celebrate it with a good, old-fashioned academic team tournament? We will offer a few small touches nodding to the celebration of Old Christmas, and include some trivia from the holiday within our quick recall matches. A few articles about Old Christmas are listed here for your studying pleasure. 

Written Assessment

Each participating team may enter 3 students in each of the following written assessment areas: arts and humanities, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. There will be only one round of written assessment. You will be provided with copies of each assessment after the match.


Quick Recall Procedures

Quick recall matches will begin at 10:00 AM.  Three preliminary rounds will be played before lunch to establish rankings for the championship round. The teams with the better preliminary records will meet teams with poorer records. All teams are guaranteed four rounds of quick recall.  Match rules will follow Governor’s Cup guidelines.


All schools participating must provide at least one moderator.  We encourage all schools to bring a qualified quick recall judge. Also, additional persons to act as scorers and spotters would be greatly appreciated. Each school should provide a minimum of two proctors for the written assessment block. Also, each school should bring at least one working buzzer system; additional systems are appreciated.



Students placing in the top 5 in their respective written assessment area will receive an individual achievement award. The top four quick recall teams will also receive an award, as will the overall winner of the classic (points will be awarded for placement similar to Governor’s Cup guidelines).



Please reply with your intent by December 3, 2018. The registration form may be e-mailed to Brent Hutchinson ( Checks should be made payable to the FCHS Academic Team.

South Laurel Cardinal Classic (6th and 6th-8th) – 11/17/2018


Saturday, November 17th, 2018


South Laurel Middle School in London, KY – just 2 miles off of I-75

Who can compete?

Our tournament features two divisions – an Open Division and a Sixth-Grade Division.  The Open Division is made up of teams of any combination of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.  The Sixth-Grade division is open only to sixth graders.  Sixth grade students who compete in the Open Division cannot compete in the Sixth-Grade Division.

How much does it cost?

Open Division – $60 per team (a school can enter a second team for $50)

Sixth-Grade Division – $50 per team (limit one per school)

Written Assessment

The day will begin with one written assessment window.  The top ten students in each subject (M, SC, SS, LA, AH) will be recognized at the awards ceremony in the auditorium.  There will be separate assessments for the open division and for the sixth-grade division.

Quick Recall

Each team in both divisions will play a MINIMUM of four rounds of quick recall.  Each team is required to bring one experienced moderator (who will also judge if needed).  High school students are permitted to serve in any official capacity.  A $15 discount is offered for schools who bring an extra moderator/judge.  The tournament will follow KAAC quick recall format.  Teams will begin the day in group play and the results will be used to seed a single elimination bracket in the afternoon.

Why should I bring my team?

Our tournament is timed perfectly to provide good competition for your sixth-graders just before Sixth Grade Showcase.  It’s also a great opportunity to provide valuable competition for your team as the academic leagues wind down and focus turns to Governor’s Cup.
