The New Bern History Bowl kicked off its initial round of competition during the First Night Celebration. This educational and fun activity is part of the 300th anniversary calendar of events and inspires some “friendly” competition among teams while providing an informative course on New Bern history.
“I’m learning things about New Bern that I never knew” admitted Kevin Roberts, President of the New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce. “I’ve lived in the area all my life, but participating in the History Bowl has taught me there’s a lot more to learn,” he added.
Round Three of the competition was held on Saturday, February 6, when two teams competed for a “Play In”. The two lowest scoring teams from the practice round during First Night met for the chance to play in the March event. Pamlico Middle School Hurricanes and The Epiphany School participated in a 30 minute match with The Epiphany School emerging as the winning team.
The next competition will be held on Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 9:00 am in the Orringer Auditorium at Craven Community College. Eight teams will play in the elimination round. The public is invited to come out and encourage the teams as they compete for the History Bowl Championship.
