Post by rchschem » Mon Sep 21, 2009 7:09 am

The second Bonfire of the Manatees tournament will be held at Raleigh Charter High School, in Raleigh, NC, on November 14, 2009. This tournament is open to any and all high school teams.

We will be using an HSAPQ set. Prelim round play will be Swiss-paired in real time; teams will play 7 prelim rounds. The top 4 teams will advance to a round robin playoff.

Costs are $60 for the first team and $50 for each additional team from a school. A $10 buzzer discount will be given for each working buzzer (max $20).

Glad to see the entire CHCCS (Chapel Hill - Carrboro City Schools) system is up and at-'em. Wish I'd known that Carrboro was trying to start a QB program--I lived about 500 feet away from them last fall.

I like it. There are a few places where clues in previous rounds become answers in later rounds. It is perfectly usable and I actually like the set and the range of difficulty within the tossups.

Am I the only one seeing powers being entered in multiples of 15, 10s in multiples of 10s, and negs in multiples of 5s??? This seems kind of wacky.

Yeah, it seems to be total points gained off of them. I.e. 10 powers shows up as 150 (15*10)

An artifact of the software. I thought that was only being displayed on our live scoreboard and not on the web reports. We'll fix that.
