The Bergen County Academies Quizbowl Team is pleased to announce its first-ever housewritten packet for our tournament, the second Bergen Academies Spring Quizbowl Tournament (BASQT). This set will be head-edited by senior Zachary Stier and written by members of the Bergen team at regular-season high school difficulty.
We would be looking for potential mirror sites for tournament dates beginning February 1st, 2016. To request the set for mirroring at a rate of $10 per team in attendance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
with your school name, location, planned date and estimated field. It is expected that mirror sites use standard tossup-bonus format. The PACE-NSC format to be used at the Hackensack site is not necessary.
In addition, we would be grateful for any test-readers with editing experience who could aid us in finalizing the set before then to ensure a great experience for all those involved.
The distribution will be as follows:
>1.5/1.5 Non-US English-language
>2/2 World and Non-Traditional [common link, etc.]
>1/1 Math/Computer Science/Other [no computation math]
3/3 Fine Arts
1/1 Philosophy/Social Science
1/1 Geography/Current Events
(1/1 Tiebreaker, distributed among Literature/History/Science/Fine Arts)
There will be 14 packets, each containing 21 power-marked tossups and 21 bonuses (1 of each for tiebreaks).
